A trailer for the game was shown, showing a dynamic Samus Aran fighting enemies such as Ridley and speaking for the first time in a Metroid game. The trailer appeared to show gameplay in both first and third-person perspectives.

"It will take you deeper into Samus' story, and further into the Metroid universe," said Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, who prefaced the introduction by stating Nintendo's intention to develop a "mature" game that would satisfy internet-dwelling fans. Team Ninja lacks former heavyweight designer Tomonobu Itagaki--Dead or Alive creator and designer of Ninja Gaiden--who left last year following a legal dispute with Tecmo.

Metroid: Other M is set for a 2010 release on Wii. Click on for the first trailer. BOOM video 2050
