Nintendo Wii: Metroid Other M Needs To Be ‘Simple And Accessible’

In a interview with G4TV Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto outlined what his acclaimed development team wishes to achieve with the highly anticipated Metroid: Other M for the Nintendo Wii.

“Our goal this time around was to use the latest technology to make a game that felt as simple and accessible as NES games did back in their day.”

“I’ve made lots of 3D action game before but I’ve never tried to do one with so simplified a control scheme. It’s important to try and do so because a lot of people may have felt left out by the increasing complexity of control schemes.”

“Trying to use just one Wii Remote to create an action game that feels current, and feels modern and slick can be quite a challenge but this is our chance to take on that challenge and I think we’ve done a good job.”

  1. Hmm, interesting, I hope it definitely feels like the old-school Metroid, but will it feel as epic as it should? or as epic as the prime series? time will tell.

    Either way i will buy it.

  2. At first I was worried, but “use the latest technology to make a game that felt as simple and accessible as NES games did back in their day,” made me happy :)
