    Team Ninja, most famous for the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden franchises, took up the deveoping reins for Metroid: Other M. The game was... controversial, to say the least, with the storyline and portrayal of Samus taking the most criticism.

    Well, now they want another go at it.

    Good thing I've been authorized to express my reaction, or I would have no way of posting this gif.

    This is a very late April fools joke.
    A not so funny joke at that.

    Team ninja, just stick to your scantily clad fighting genre and leave my metroid alone...

    If they knew what was wrong with Other M and was sure they could fix it I would say let them have a try at it. I didn't mind Other M too much besides the silly plot, trying to use a 3d set up on a 2d (why not just make the game side scrolling?) and the point at the screen bits

    I read that as Ninja Theory instead of Team Ninja. Either outcome would still be unfavorable.
    I feel Other M is the reason Metroid isn't getting a proper 25th Anniversary something

    Good lord they must be joking. Other M was horrible. Like there's almost nothing redeeming about it. In retrospect, the gameplay was horrible, the story was atrocious, and the characters ranged from either two dimensional or stereotypical, or both.

    Considering Team Ninja hasn't exactly been doing stellar with their games since Other M (cough Ninja Gaiden 3 cough), I really hope they never touch this franchise again.

    Or...you know we can give retro studios metroid again. They actually know what to do with it after all.

    Actually, you can blame Nintendo for the story/scenario, which was done by Yoshio Sakamoto of Nintendo. Team Ninja was only involved with programming and 3D modeling.

    Other M was good so I am all for another game from them. I just think its popular to hate the game it was not that bad as people make it out to be.

    Oh I blame them both but the influences of both teams can be seen. And those influences were shit.


    No it's just good to dislike sexist pieces and shit games.

    Nintendo will most definitely not let them handle that series after the reception Other: M got.

    Anyway, I'd say Other M was a case where both Team Ninja and, especially, Yoshio Sakamoto (Writer, Director, Producer) were at fault for delivering a bad game. The franchise is better off out of their hands.

    I thought Other M was awesome so I wouldn`t mind it... I don`t give a shit if Samus dies because Adam didn`t gave her permission to use something. Didn`t really mind that.

    Imo keep the controls and combat and structure it like Super or Prime1 and it could be one of the best Metroids as of yet... But who knows.

    But first of all Nintendo has to do a 2D Metroid for 3DS!!!

    Im just curious as to what will come next for the franchise. All of the games have really tied up most loose ends of the storyline, are we just going to be subjected to more backstory information? Or can we expect the series to launch off into a new direction?
    Also, i'm wondering if Metroid is going to become an FPS in all future games, or if we will go back to side scrolling games.

    Other M wasn't even bad, I wouldn't mind it, but Retro are the brains. Even though the Prime series is finished, it would be nice to see a new metroid game with similar gameplay to it.
