Do you feel like living through a full-fledged Metroid experience, but can’t be bothered to do all that item-hunting? No, you couldn’t care less about those stray E-Tanks and absent missile expansions. Do you care about the deep, rich lore of Samus’ Zebesian struggle. Metroid: Other M will have the option of watching game’s cut scenes into a streamlined, two-hour, non-interactive story through Theater Mode.
The series’ godfather, Yoshio Sakamoto, explained that the mode, which unlocks after completing the game, would allow returning players to soak in all the dialogue and events of the story without having to replay the whole thing over again. Why, that sounds a heck of a lot like the full-length Shenmue movie which accompanied the game’s sequel.
Well, I can’t wait for METROID, but it sounds that METRIOD is also worth a looksee. 😀
