Yoshio Sakamoto's comment about Metroid: Other M being on-rails at one point quickly caused a stir among Metroid fans. Now Sakamoto's remark has been clarified.
I wonder what Other M would have been like had it used the Klonoa-like style. Probably wouldn't have been that bad since Klonoa is great.
Can you imagine of they made this game a 2D side scroller and added next gen graphics? It could be great!
I have never played any game in the series, but i am looking forward to this one.
Oh man you have no idea what you're missing, if you've played Shadow Complex than Metroid will wet your panties.
Ohhhh come on Nintendo and already release this greatness.
"I have never played any game in the series, but i am looking forward to this one.' who are you?
''i have never played any game in te series, but i am looking forward to this one'' poor guy i actually feel bad for you
Sakamoto-san is old school. With Metroid, he's only ever made 2D games (he was only an adviser for Prime), so that's what is comfortable for him. Heck, he didn't even give up on D-pad control for Other M. But I'm glad there was a compromise with Team Ninja -- full 3D environments and being able to move anywhere within them (without being stuck on a 2D plane), but an auto-camera system that frames the action (sometimes like an old school 2D Metroid). M:OM is actually a pretty bold design choice. 2D-type controls for a 3D game that switches between first- and third-person views.
