Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi has told Official Nintendo Magazine how he was honoured to have been asked to produce Metroid: Other M for Nintendo.
Metroid Other M is finally released in the UK this week and having directed the game, Hayashi looks back on his work with pride. "It's a great honour. I never would have imagined that I would be developing the latest instalment of titles I'd played in my childhood. If I could travel through time, I'd go back and tell the child version of myself."
His love for the series is perhaps why he decided to bring back many of the creatures he loved from Super Metroid. "The Metroid series has lots of unforgettable creatures," Hayashi continued. "We wanted as many of them as possible to be brought back. In the Bottle Ship there are lots of creatures longtime fans will surely get excited for."
So will longtime fans of Metroid be as excited as Hayashi about Metroid Other M. You can read our review this Friday to find out.
