Metroid producer Yoshio Sakamoto has confirmed that Other M is not a replacement for Metroid: Dread, as the game is still being kicking around mentally in his head.

IGN had a chance to speak with Sakamoto during the conference, and was asked why Dread popped up on DS lists a while back and disappeared.

“But as a concept the Metroid Dread idea does still exist within my mind so maybe sometime in the future I will be able to bring that to you.”
