Ok, I'll make it, since nobody else has. :) Nintendo announced their latest Metroid game, much to the chagrin of the internet in general who decried it as Not A Metroid Game.

 

 

After watching some gameplay on the Treehouse after the E3 digital event, I think it looks like it has some promise, but they need to polish it up. I also wonder how it'll work when you don't have 3 other people to play with.

 

Also interesting, something that Ngamer01 also noticed and commented on in the shoutbox, is that during the Treehouse sample play they had the 4 players going to an ice world to capture an "Ice Beast", which looked awfully familiar (also shown in the above trailer). Familiar enough that I remembered where I saw it - Unseen 64:

That ice ape looked a lot like what was shown in the gameplay they did, although much smaller and sans a couple of arms. One can only hope that they'll tie this stuff in more clearly to the Metroid universe if they want to make it believable that it occurs there (and get rid of those Playskool battle outfits the GF soldiers are wearing).

 

Thoughts? Comments? Diatribes? Optimism?

I swear i remember years ago somebody (I think it might have been Conker) saying they wanted a Metroid Prime game where you played as a Federation Trooper. Well, here you go! :P

I said years ago that I wanted a game that let you play as a squad of Fed troopers.

Shame it's on the 3DS :(

 

ANd I did say that, actually. You're smarter than you look, Morg :3

 

Edit: I guess Prowl said it too. Well, he is pretty smart.

It's the aesthetics that make this not Metroid. The concept is cool of being able to control federation troopers and work together, but why do they have to make it look so ugly? Like torgo said, polish it up and change the toy look.

I wanted it before too. A Republic Commando-style cooperative campaign with squad-based gameplay, that's in keeping in with Metroid's aesthetics. As a supplement.

This chibi nonsense is definitely not what or how I wanted it, especially as the franchise's sole representation in 5-6 years.

Yeah, graphically the game looks like shit. I forget that the 3DS is capable of way better than that.
