Team Ninja's Metroid: Other M was one of the titles that caught fans' attention during Nintendo's E3 presentation last week. There have been a few questions, however. For one, would it be a "proper" Metroid game and not a bastardization of the series?
According to Reggie Fils-Aime, series fans can rest assured. In an interview with GameSpot, the Nintendo of America president promised that's Other M will be a more traditional Metroid compared to the Metroid Prime trilogy.
"It's all about what we can do creatively with a franchise to revitalize it," he said. "A year ago, if someone asked me what's going on with Metroid -- when are we going to go back to the more traditional Metroid series versus the path that we went down with Prime? Here's the answer: Other M.
"As we looked at where we wanted to go with Metroid, we wanted to place Samus back in the more traditional lineage of Metroid. We wanted to do it in a way that had a harder edge, and we wanted to go deeper into her story and more into this Metroid mythology."
