New Metroid Other M screenshots land

See more of Samus Aran's new adventure

Here are some new screenshots for Metroid: Other M, Team Ninja's attempt at telling the real story of Samus Aran.


As we announced yesterday evening, Metroid: Other M will be released in Japan on 2 September, a few days after the US launch. Nintendo has yet to announce a release date for Europe, although it is expected during the third quarter of the year.

As you can see from the screenshots below, Metroid: Other M will blend first person and third person action. You can see Samus curled up in her morph ball form, fighting an enemy and locking on to another foe in first person mode.

But does Metroid: Other M manage to blend the two gameplay styles successfully? Read our Metroid: Other M preview to find out.
