Any objections lady?

So unless you have been living in a hole for the past few days by now you know that Nintendo has announced a new Metroid for the Wii at this years e3 conference.

Dubbed Project M it is a collaboration by Nintendo and Team Ninja (the people behind Ninja Gaiden). Set between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion this story promises to reveal some of Samus’ back story as well as what happened to her former commanding officer Adam Malkovich.

The trailer also looks fantastic showing what the Wii can be graphically capable of. It showcases a hybrid 2D/3D gameplay style. It should be interesting to see how this 2.5D plays out. The game is expected to release sometime in 2010. Personally I’m just glad Team Ninja showed restraint in Samus’ figure.

You should also check out 1UP’s Interview with Yoshio Sakamoto & Yusuke Hayashi for more information on the game. It’s a great read aside from the mention that the game may be a bit more linear than we could hope for.

The trailer is below. More coverage to follow, in the meantime you can join the discussion in the forums.
