New Metroid Game Announced: Metroid Other MS

Nintendo will be teaming up with the remains of Tecmo's Team Ninja to bring us an all-new Metroid title for the Wii: Metroid Other M.

Due in 2010, the game looks a blend of first and third-person gameplay (clip showed much more third than first-person), with shooting sequences mixed with old-fashioned Metroid platforming.

The game also features some shiny, animated cutscenes, giving the series a somewhat fresher, newer look for its story sequences. You can check out the press conference footage below.
