I'm going to take a guess that the other mother is the scientist woman that Samus stares down/was shown at the beginning of the trailer.

This implies this woman helped create Metroids. Maybe she made Mother Brain or did experiments or something.

Sorry, I just always liked the Metroid mythos.

I'll have to see a better trailer of it to see if that's what it was, because I didn't get the feeling. Metroid Mythos is the Chozo created the Metroids.

I'm mostly going on the fact that there were two blondes in the trailer that were prominent, one being Samus. At first I thought they were the same person, but this other lady has short hair and was dressed in a lab coat.

Forgot about the Chozo making the 'troids, I need to brush up on my history.

It looks decent, but I still am a little concerned with Team Ninja at the helm. I absolutely love the Metroid franchise, so I hope it turns out ok.

This better not be like a God of War ripoff, I hope it is in 2D mostly with 3D added in somewhere. I want to see more because I am highly interested.

I didn't know how to properly respond to this thread, without sounding like a stupid school girl, here goes nothing...

...ZOMG WOW!!! :D

*ahem*

Where to start. The first thing that I noticed, was that the military captain looking person says "Any rejections lady?", and as we all know, Adam Malkovich said that in the Fusion series. So, judging by the title "Other M", it leads me to believe their is another person in the bloodline of the Malkovich's. Also, why did he say that to the blond mistress? Is that supposed to be Samus?

"I'm Samus Aran", is what the blonde lady says, yet we Samus already in her suit. Fusion did introduce the addition of the Samus-X, so...interesting. Just interesting.

Anyone else notice the Mother Brain scream as Samus did a charge into it's face. Awesome.

I took that as meaning this is a prequel to Fusion when he is still alive, and that it IS Adam Malcovich. Also, not that it matters, but I'm pretty sure he says "objections," not "rejections."

"I'm Samus Aran", is what the blonde lady says, yet we Samus already in her suit.


I thought that at first too, but when I watched it again I noticed that you never actually see the other lady say it, and it sounds echoey, as if the voice is coming from Samus inside the suit. I think it's Samus introducing herself to that lady.

Not only a prequel to Fusion (which is 4) possibly a prequel to the entire series, or at the least flashbacks and part of it will be (ala Godfather 2?).. since Adam as far as I know was gone before the first Metroid.

One thing that was interesting was seeing a clearly young Samus (I think it was Samus, the boyish looking sort of girl, looks similar to the e-manga) and then also the one similar to the Prime series in there.. so I wonder if we'll be seeing kind of cut backs into the past and future...

I also think it was Samus saying "I'm Samus Aran" in the suit, since her lips don't move.. I think it was basically just letting us know, she's talking in this.

I'm largely very happy to see a more story driven Metroid. Metroid Prime 1 was a good example of kind of a hidden backstory, which I also like.. but Metroid Prime 3 was sort of somewhere inbetween, it's like they didn't want to go too far either way. Fusion to me was a really good story, it featured some real nice surprises.

But I have some reservations. I hope Team Ninja doesn't turn her into some kind of sex symbol, I'd like to say Nintendo won't but considering what they did in Brawl, I'm not too sure. Two, the gameplay.. is it a real 2D Metroid? It seemed like it had all kinds of different camera motions and stuff, tough to tell.. I hope they can create the same atmosphere and feeling that previous Metroids have been able to do. I also hope we'll see more of a Super Metroid sort of style gameplay over a Fusion style, Fusion was a bit too linear for my taste.

The best thing to come out of this years E3 (Nintendo wise).
Yeah Mario Galaxy 2 will own, but this was the biggest bang from Nintendo's side. Team Ninja actually made me even more excited considering the greatness that was Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 for XBox/360.

Maybe she made Mother Brain or did experiments or something.


I gotta think this is what the 'Other M' references - that or some kind of different Metroid. I think this may be a prequel to the first Metroid, detailing how Mother Brain came to exist/how she was created (the bio-tech/brains were talked about in logs in Metriod Prime 3 briefly). If this is a prequel, hopefully they talk about Samus' origins (this time through voiced cut scenes, not logs!), the space pirate attack that killed her parents, the Chozos that raised her and gave her the suit, and how she went back to human society and became a bounty hunter.

Is the blond with the short hair in the beginning a young Samus or the scientist at the end of the movie?

I'm really looking forward to this game - 2010 can't come fast enough!

I'm almost 100% sure that the short hair blond is a Young Samus.

Obviously an older one then the manga (that's when her parents were killed) I wouldn't normally put so much thought into it but it also shows Adam near exactly as he is in the trailer too.

Another interesting question I saw was looking at the manga I realized that Ridley talks in it and from ever piece of intel and bit we know, Ridley is a actually a very smart... I wonder if we'll see him talk as well.

Edit- After watching the trailer again... I wonder who actually said I'm Samus Aran.. the voice sounds muffled like it's coming from the helmet and Samus (or whoever is in the suit) turns and has body language like she is talking but her lips don't move, I cant imagine it would be anyone else though, considering the backstory it wouldn't make sense for anyone to be in the suit.

My guess is the scientist is probably someone Samus befriends and then gets backstabbed by, why else would there be that weird look.

I also sort of agree with CoffeeEdge, I definatly don't want it all action, but keep in mind just about every Metroid Prime trailer was full of action, as well.

Strangely, I'm not feeling super-hyped about this, from initial reaction.

I suppose that it could be just that the trailer was cut to be exciting and action-packed, but I'm hoping that the actual game has Metroid's trademark exploration elements. It can't just be all action.

The person in the suit is Samus Aran. She says "I'm Samus Aran". You can somewhat see that her lips move.
