Now, we’ve all been drooling over the Metroid footage from earlier today. I know I’ve watched it a dozen times. Yet just now, did I notice something very curious that asks the question: When is Other M suppose to take place? Adam makes an appearance, so it would be logical to think it takes place before fusion, but another image caught my eye. It flashed by so quick that I barely noticed it.
I know Mother Brain uses the Final Form from Super Metroid, and I figured they just wanted a more menacing look (come on, a brain in a jar isn’t that scary). It wasn’t until the better quality came up that I notice that this scene is a recreation of the final scene of Super Metroid! If you don’t notice it, click on the image to see a larger version of the picture. You can clearly see Mother Brain blasting the Metroid hatching to kingdom come.
Does that mean this Metroid game will cover the entire history of the Metroid franchise? Could it be just a flash back? How will they tie it all together? I must know more!!!!
