Yoshio Sakamoto, co-creator of Metroid, just finished his lecture at GDC. He spoke about Metroid: Other M, Tomodachi Collection, and Nintendo in general.
Very interesting stuff about Other M. I'm surprised Sakamoto was so opposed to nunchuck support.
Me too. I wonder why? But I'm very glad they didn't go 2D or keep Samus on a rail. A 3D game with the "snappy" controls of the 2D Metroids would be a match made in heaven.
most people want a 2d metroid over 3d
Different strokes for different folks, I guess, n4f. If there were a 2D Metroid released tomorrow (c'mon Dread, we know you're out there), I'd buy it in a heartbeat. But I'm much more interested in a third-person 3D Metroid. Other M will be the first of its kind. I love 2D 'Troid, but I've played them for a long time (and just beat Zero Mission again).
Sweet! Other M!
Can't wait for Other M!
Sweet It Is.
still seems lacking w/out nunchuck. I dont think it'll really control well in first person mode but could be fixed easily w/the classic controller
Well, if the last hands-on were correct, there won't BE much control in first person mode. You simply look around, but can't move your feet. The CC wouldn't remedy that. I'd prefer nunchuck support, too. But this is Sakamoto-san, so I trust him...
"Sakamoto was against having the nunchuck included as part of Other M’s controls, even though Team Ninja suggested it" At least have it as an option, well thats my skeptic side, if they can pull it off with just the Wii mote then hats off to them
