In a surprise announcement, Nintendo gives gamers a sneak peek at the latest entry in the Metroid franchise.
Today, during the Nintendo Press Conference, Reggie teased the latest entry to the Metroid series, Metroid: Other M. The game is being co-developed with Team Ninja, who is best known for their work on both the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series.
From what could be seen, the game seems to sport a grittier feel and story, as well as a complete change in perspective and gameplay style. The trailer revealed distinct two dimensional play as well as what appeared to be some instances of three dimensional play in both first and third person.
Visually, the game appeared more vibrant and bright than the Prime series and staple characters, most notably Ridley appear to be returning.
As of right now, not much else is known about the game, gameplay, or story. Nintendo only revealed that eager fans can expect the game in 2010.
