Metroid Other M Trailer Dishes Some Gameplay

I have never been in love with Metroid, but I know that there are many out there that are. I was not a huge fan of the Metroid Prime games, particularly the last Wii outing. However, the announcement last year that Team Ninja would be handling Metroid Other M got me excited for the franchise in a new way, especially considering the mix of the Prime style with what looked to be an old school platforming in some ways.

Up until now, we haven’t really gotten to see much in the way of gameplay, especially how these two will phase together on the fly, except in some small bits. Enter the new Other M trailer, chock full of gameplay goodness. What do you guys think?

  1. Like how it is going back to its side scrolling roots, should be a winner from the video, but does it cost 15 dollars?

  2. Haha, I doubt it will be 15 dollars. However, the 2 1/2 scrolling really seriously reminds me of Shadow Complex in a lot of ways.

  3. I really like how you turn the wiimote sideways to switch between first person and the 3rd person views. Interesting idea.

  4. Looks cool. Guess those worries some people had about a big boobed Samus being an indicator of a bad game have been quelled =D

  5. Not a huge fan of Metroid Prime?


    ahem…Anyways, this looks good, but I doubt I’ll get it. Just not interested in Wii gaming anymore.

  6. [quote comment=”10795″]Ugh, it looks like Super Metroid. DO NOT WANT. Moar Primezzzz![/quote]

    You have lost all credit with me, Skuba.

  7. @ Anthony, see if I care! lol, I just couldn’t get into it. 2D doesn’t always do it for me and I couldn’t work with the controls. Also, after playing Prime I just couldn’t compare the two. Bar the opening scene which Prime seems to rip off very successfully.
