Metroid: The Other M E3 Trailer »


As impressive and surprising as the trailer for Metroid: Other M, an action-packed collaboration between Nintendo and Team Ninja, was, I couldn't help but remark how much more violent Samus Aran seemed to have become. Since when does Samus shove her blast cannon down a creature's mouth? This is the team behind the hyperviolent Ninja Gaiden series, though. Would this transfer to Metroid, too?

During an interview at E3, Metroid: Other M designer Yusuke Hayashi from Team Ninja, sitting next to legendary Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto, argued that wasn't the case.

"First of all, it's not my intent to create a Ninja Gaiden version for Metroid with Other M," explained Hayashi. "Our goal is definitely to use our know-how to our advantage in developing something that is still distinctly Metroid, but has all those qualities that would make it even better than what people would expect."

He did see my point, though.

"A trailer being a trailer," he continued, "it's going to have the sequences in it that are more action-packed, maybe a little more violent, but it's not going to be all of this game. I'm going to have a version that you guys can actually get your hands on fairly soon."

I wonder what soon means. Nintendo doesn't tend to attend the Tokyo Game Show, so maybe the company will be holding a hands-on media event over the summer. Or, better yet, given how far along the game looks -- release a demo for all Wii owners!
