    I call BS on this, F you nintendo and your robo slaves, look at him, just look at him, soulless shell, he can understand players lol?????

    What a pointless announcement, I just knew since he started begging and explaining that it's bad news lol, I wonder if nintendo has any at all AAA titles this year :/ really sad.

    It's not always the case that delaying a game magically makes it better. Take Duke Nukem Forever and Too Human for example. Both games were delayed and started over multiple times and through several console generations, and both were awful. Too a lesser extent, Mighty Number 9 is another great example of delays actually making the game worse.

    Also, Other M is a decent game if you skip the story.

    I'm fine with waiting more if it means Retro is involved. Would be even better if Bandai Namco was out of the picture altogether.

    I’d much rather a good game delayed than a crap one released on time. So I’m fine with this, been waiting all these years anyway, what’s one or two more.

    Retro Studios?

    WHY WEREN'T THEY THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!? -.-
    I'm sure we'd be getting it at the end of this year or middle of next if they were there in the first place. >_____>

    Also.. Why not just throw some images on the screen of the scrapped production? XD All of that interesting work going to be gone...
    To top it off... I really wonder what was WRONG with the game?
    Was the graphics not well?
    Was it super slow? ?_?
    I am skeptical to believe it is because the game was not living up to Metroid fans' expectations because apparently Other M "Lived up to our expectations and was correct, quality-wise them to launch it"... Certainly, right?
    either way, maybe they have learned from their mistakes? Maybe not... XD But hey. Maybe.

    Had a feeling this was going to happen simply for the fact that nothing was ever shown or talked about after the E3 reveal.

    AFAIK, no. Retro Studios wasn't supposed to have a hand in development. I'm betting that's why they scrapped current progress... Because it wasn't what Retro Studios would have shown.

    Duke Nukem Forever is a special case, and going against the grain here... But.. It really wasn't that bad.

    That's funny... Where were they when Other M and Federation Force were being made? That met their quality standards but this doesn't? It must be really bad.

    For Nintendo and a japanese company it‘s a huge step to annouce their failure and apologize for it. I really appreciate that.
    Other companies like EA would release it anyway, even if it‘s crap. And Nintendo want‘s to make it better.
    I really looking forward MP4, and I think these are good news. I can wait and the game deserves more development time.

    Sadly the Retro Studios today is not the Retro Studios then since key figures of the Prime series have left the studio.
