Metroid Other M is a title developed by Project M, a group of people from Nintendo, Team Ninja, and the D-Rockets. The first glimps that we had was a short trailer at E3 2009. Supposedly the game will dwell deeper into the story of Samus. It was originally set for a June 27th release but was delayed to August 31st, which yes, is this Tuesday.
The game is set between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. Samus wakes up on a Galatic Federation ship, and soon finds herself in the company of a group of Galatic Federation soldiers, who are wary of her at first. Samus gains their trust by defeating a monster and they start their search of the ship for survivors.
Metroid Other M can be played from two different perspectives. Both 3rd person and 1st person modes are implemented into the game. 3rd person mode is activated bu holding the Wii remote horizontal and is how most of the game is played. 1st person mode is activated by pointing the Wii remote at the T.V. Samus is not allowed to actually move while in 1st person perspective, but instead it is used to lock onto targets to fire missiles. This is the first game in the Metroid series to feature melee combat including dodging and counter attacking. Lethal Strike and Overblast are also methods of finishing off enemies.
Completing the game allows players to unlock a two hour film. It contains all the cut-scenes from the game, and footage of gameplay recorded by the developers.
