Nintendo has re-confirmed to G4 that Metroid: Other M will see a release this year.

The game, being developed in collaboration with Team Ninja, was announced for 2010 last year at E3. Never hurts to retread old ground.

“The next highly anticipated offering in the Metroid franchise is Metroid: Other M, which will be available this year,” a rep told the site.

This now means the company expects to launch new games in their three biggest IPs – Super Mario Galaxy 2, new Zelda Wii and Other M – this year: hot potato if you’re a Wii owner.

    I’m still not convinced by Other M. It looks…. I dunno. Not very Metroidy.

    Only Ninja Blade was utter gash… and wasn’t developed by Team Ninja, either. Are you thinking of Ninja Gaiden?

    I agree with Blerk – plus I wish it was just more of the same.

    Conversely, I’ve never been a fan of Metroid and I think this looks great… which is probably a bad thing for series fans.

    this is a slick looking title, bound to be 60fps with team ninja behind it, and quite the series reboot any franchise needs after 3 consecutive fps titles. This future incarnation appears more inline with its 2d roots then the prime series which felt a world away gameplay wise, despite being faithful to the formula.
