Yes I'm very excited for this game. I like how they combined the 2D and 3D gameplay. I am also a big fan of Metroid Fusion and to know that this game takes place before it is good to know. I hope to one day be able to actually get Super Metroid so I could understand more of Other M as I'm sure there will be many throwbacks to it. I am a long time Metroid fan but sadly won't play Other M in a long time. I plan to play all the games in order which is Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime 2 Echoes, Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, Super Metroid, Metroid Other M, and Metroid Fusion. As you can see I purposely left out Metroid 2 the Return of Samus. The reason why is because I don't own it or have any access of getting it. But overall I'm really geeked for this game and can't wait to find out more of Samus's past and to learn more about Adam Malkovich.
