Metroid: Other M Made Its Creator Cry

Posted By | On 12th, Aug. 2010

Are you apprehensive of the upcoming story based Metroid title, the oddly named Metroid: Other M? Are you afraid that the game might sacrfice detail and atmosphere for a narrative that may be cheesy and weak anyway? Are you still not convinced that the game might turn out to be a turning point for the series after all?

Don’t worry.  Apparently, the story Metroid: Other M tells is a moving story, and it seems to tell it well. Why else would series creator Yoshio Sakamoto, who is also helming this game, admit to having cried after seeing one of the game’s cutscenes?

In the latest Iwata Asks, given over to the upcoming biggie from Nintendo, game director Ryuzi Kitaura revealed, “Since these were temporary cinematics, we were asking him to shoot things like Samus in tights, or polystyrene creatures, and there was no set to speak of.

“Sakamoto-san stood close to me, checking the monitors. When we’d shoot a particularly moving scene, I’d ask him ‘How was that, Sakamoto-san?’, but he’d be completely silent. I was really worried, thinking ‘Oh no, he doesn’t like it…’, but then when I peeked at his face, his eyes were full of tears.”

Well, I only hope they were tears of emotion, and not tears of frustration at how the game was turning out.

Metroid: Other M hits the Wii exclusively on 31st August. We’ll have our review ready by then.
