Metroid: Other M is almost upon us (releases on August 31, 2010) and Nintendo showed off an all-new trailer for the game at E3 2010.
A trailer I refuse to watch because I’m trying to see, hear and read as little as possible on the game since I want to play it THAT BAD!

For decades, Samus Aran has been known as one of the first female protagonists in video games, and one of the most enigmatic. Having traded her haunted past for the solitary life of a bounty hunter, Samus finally tells her own tale in this revealing, personal story of her failings, her flaws and ultimately her motivation. Metroid: Other M is an unprecedented collaboration that blends the slick, action-packed production of the world-renowned Team Ninja development team with the game design talents of the creators of the original Metroid. Metroid: Other M is a dramatic new direction for a legendary franchise and a bold new blend between cinematics, storytelling and the best in interactive entertainment.
Here is the new E3 2010 trailer from Nintendo’s Press Conference.
Key features of Metroid: Other M include:
* Metroid: Other M takes the best elements of first-person and third-person gaming to create a seamless blend between game play, storytelling and dynamic cinematography. It feels like a movie the player can control. Players hold the Wii Remote™ controller sideways while navigating and battling in third-person. However, at any moment, players can switch immediately to Wii Remote pointer controls to examine and explore the environments in first-person perspective.
* Metroid fans know more about Samus’ suits and weapons than they do about what drives her. That’s about to change. The story begins following the events of Super Metroid™, when a baby Metroid gave its life to protect Samus. With voice acting and a rich story, players learn more about Samus’ past as she weaves through an action-packed adventure aboard the Bottle Ship, a decommissioned space facility. As she hurtles into this new adventure, Samus will encounter her first mentor and Commanding Officer of the Galactic Federation, Adam Malkovich.
* The development of Metroid: Other M is an exciting collaboration between Nintendo’s Yoshio Sakamoto and Team Ninja. Sakamoto was the director of Super Metroid in 1994. Team Ninja is the renowned action developer of Ninja Gaiden. Metroid: Other M pairs Sakamoto’s expert design and exploratory focus of the classic Metroid series with Team Ninja’s signature stylish, no-holds-barred action.
