Metroid Database Translates Other M Artwork for Your Pleasure

Posted by James Newton

See Samus in a new light

Metroid: Other M certainly had some delicious artwork, most of which was only available in Japanese, but those hard-working folks at the Metroid Database have translated plenty of concept art into English.

From sketches of Zero Suit Samus to maps and boss concepts, the artwork is well worth a look over if you're into Samus's most recent adventure. Be warned though: the artwork and accompanying notes contain spoilers, so if you've not finished the game yet then you may want to wait until Adam authorises use of this artwork.

Not gonna start anything on Other M (wasn't a fan, i'll leave it at that) but that's cool.

I really like the artwork, alot of the sketches are pretty humorous, like that one where Anthony is annoying Samus :D

I wish Samus would've been a little happier in the game, as shown by many of her sketches. Instead, she just acts emo throughout the whole game.

I loved this game. It shows what potential the Wii has graphics wise. (Even if it needs to be double layered)

I dunno why Team N couldn't do this themselves, but whatever...why are there a bunch of random quotes in here anyways? xD
(the fish sketch, there's on on the bottom "Buy something will ya!") o_0

Off-topic: I hope next (the) Smash allows for players to use OM character design Samus, as an alt costume for the character. Matter of fact, I hope the next Smash will have that for all characters.

It's sad there can be variety and interest in the male faces and bodies, but far, FAR less with females. C'mon, Japan. Not ALL girls have to be pretty. :(

That last sentence was the best part of this article.

By the way, anyone else wonder if the only humans they actually gave a crap about were Samus, Adam, and Anthony? Everyone else just seemed so ugly, plain, and not worked on at all.

Very cool stuff! To this day I still like Other M a lot. I just need to finish up the post final boss gameplay.

Funny how almost nothing from the concept stage made it into the final game. They wanted to make a point about Maurice having a receding hairline, but he never takes his helmet off in the game. K.G. was supposed to have fashion sense? He never spoke to anyone. His personality (like himself) was M.I.A.
