I think that's set before Fusion, as a character in Fusion that is dead is in Other M (P think not played it.)

Yeah that's true. The computer in Fusion is Adam from Other M.

Set between Super Metroid (Metroid 3) and Metroid Fusion (Metroid 4) but released a few years after Fusion.

It didn't retroactively change all the numbers though, just as Solo and Rogue One didn't bump all the main SW Episodes up by 2.

More importantly than Metroid where do Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and Zeldas Adventure fit into the timeline?

Nobody should ever count Other M.


tough, nintendo says its count so it counts


Regardless, Metroid 5 is just what the fanbase uses to refer to a new Metroid 2D sidecroller


i am never going to understand fandoms

For me 5 simply means a game set after Fusion.

Flawed? Absolutely.
Poor story? Yup.
Worst main game in the series? Certainly.
Enjoyable enough game? Damn right.

It’s not enjoyable though. There are a few enjoyable moments but mostly it’s rubbish.

On that we can disagree. I had a good time with it, warts and all.

Does anyone really plan what they're playing in advance?

I enjoyed Other M in a way that only somebody who hasn't completed Metroid Prime 2 or 3 and only recently completed Super Metroid a bit before Other M can. The first 2D Metroid games I finished were Fusion and Zero Mission.

But it's not a "good Metroid game" buy any means. Does that make it a bad game? No. It's a good game but a bad Metroid game. It's not very good or Excellent.

It's an Edge 5 or 6 game.

Anyway, Nintendo themselves confirmed that Namco Bandai made a bad Metroid Prime 4 effort and it is being developed by Retro now. Mercury Stream did a surprisingly excellent effort updating Metroid II but a mainline 3D game is a whole other ballpark. Retro are the right studio to be doing that, at least if you forget that at least half the original team have left. But they made great Donkey Kong games. They're basically what you'd expect as an industrious second party "not Nintendo but Nintendo" studio now. Excited to see what they do for Switch seeing as we had nothing for Wii U so there's a huge amount of potential in terms of world building and everything that happened with Zelda and Mario. Just lay off the story elements (cutscenes similar to Zelda are fine), Metroid should be 1% story/narrative and 99% aliens/atmosphere/dread. Imagine if they basically replaced the alien in Alien Isolation with Metroids and a lot more world building, diversity and verticality and platforming and, y'know, colours and ice and lava and stuff. Seeing is Metroid is basically Manga Alien 1 with acrylic paint and a powersuit.

MP4 should have been given to Retro to begin with.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Should it? They've not made a game in almost 6 years.

Other M is one of the most criminally under rated games of all time. It's closer to being the best game in the series than it is the worst.

Also Nintendo put out a new advert for their theme park. Its a whole lot of nothing really but the song in it is strawberry floating magic.

Erm, yes? They have an excellent track record, especially with the Prime games.

The only minor thing going against Retro of recent is that since Tropical Freeze they’ve not done anything (or if they have its been very minor, not counting porting Tropical Freeze), so will the same core team be there? Or will it be largely new people? Either way it should be ok, the old team knew how to make a cracking Metroid game and a new team will have something to prove that they can cut it.
