Metroid Other M Gets 2 Hour Movie

Metroid Other M Gets 2 Hour Movie on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Team Ninja's Metroid masterpiece tells a deeper tale of bounty Hunter Samus's history, and will include a two hour movie.

Once you're done with exploring mysterious vessels and eradicated viscous alien creatures, you'll be able to watch the whole story in its entirely in a "Theatre Mode".

Usually games present a list of cut-scenes, but according to Kotaku the clips have been stitched together as a two-hour movie made up of CGI and pre-recorded gameplay, dived up into chapters.

I wanted to do that, but we're using our own sample play data instead because that's also a way of giving the player hints - like, you can beat this particular boss this way too, and so forth.

Thanks to C3 reader Squidboy.

Interesting. I hope that it will be something worth watching, instead of an awkward way to relive the story... could it be that this becomes such a great thing that it becomes popcorn material Smilie?

Wow, and it's good voice acting and animation judging from when I played through the demo on wednesday.

Not sure if I'd watch it 2 hours through though.

Might this news not indicate that the game is going to be quite short?

Most Metroid games can be finished in 2-3 hours with a speedrun.

If the gameplay in this movie is abridged and played by experts, I'd say the game length sounds about right.

I actually purposely avoided the Metroid demo at the recent Nintendo event purely because the intro is so damn long and boring, and sadly can't be skipped...

Luckily I was informed it was the same demo I'd played earlier in the year, so I didn't miss much, but Nintendo definitely needs to tell Team Ninja to throw in a 'Skip Scene' button!! Smilie

I get less and less excited about this game the more information that is revealed.

It's gorgeous to watch a 2-hour-movie of all the cutscenes! I wanted to have this feature back when I was playing Tales of Symphonia on Cube!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

I feel exactly the same about it.
