Reggie on Metroid: Other M possibly being M-rated, teases MotionPlus support for Galaxy 2
Will Metroid: Other M be the first M-rated Metroid title? Probably not, but President and COO of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime wouldn’t rule it out. He said that the game won’t necessarily be given a mature rating and that fans shouldn’t look into the term “Project M” too much. Yet it’s still interesting that Reggie simply didn’t say “no” to the possibility of Other M being M-rated.
“Big Metroid surprise. We’ve been holding this one very close to the vest to make sure that the surprise would be there. Not only the game itself looks fabulous but also this collaboration with Team Ninja, which has been very fruitful, very great work together. Not necessarily [M-rated]. At this point, it is very early, we said it’s a title that’s going to come out in 2010. Really, Project M is our internal terminology for the collaboration for what’s being done. Don’t read into it as to what the ESRB will be.”
Reggie also spoke about Super Mario Galaxy 2. He promises that the game will have new hooks to it. Also surprising is that MotionPlus support was teased.
“There are new hooks to it. We’re not announcing exactly what those are. We showed a little taste of what happens with Yoshi, so that’s a new addition to the Galaxy experience. Will it work with MotionPlus or not? We’re going to keep you in suspense a little bit longer on that, but it is obviously going to advance the ball. We feel it has to in order to carry the Mario name.”
