Awesome Metroid: Other M documentary translated

Nintendo and Tecmo Koei put out an awesome 16-minute-long documentary on the making of Metroid: Other M in Japan last week, and obsessed fans have gone to the trouble of translating the whole thing for our western brains.

The two videos below feature Tecmo's Yosuke Hayashi and Metroid creator Yoshio Sakamoto, who speak over a ton of gameplay footage from the brilliant-looking collaboration project, which'll be out in the UK on Wii on September 3, and August 31 in the US.

Put your reading specs on and check these videos out.

Part One:

    Just pre-ordered it yesterday. Metroid is f*cking awesome. And one of the greatest game series' of all time, including Zelda and Metal Gear.

    I hope the story segments aren't to overdone. The original Metroid Sakamoto worked on was quite a bit about solitude on a hostile planet. Other than the orders to destroy the Space Pirates, she didn't interact to much with anything/ anyone. I know graphics a data space was limited, but I think saving some of the sole survivor/ one woman army "Alien movies" feel would be nice. Still saving up for this though. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

    I kind of want them to get rid of the Phong, normal mapping, and other shaders and make it all look like how samus looks in the image on the front page. I guess it just wouldn't be the same that way I guess
