Whoa whoa whoa....Metroid is a girl?!?!

Well, now that Nintendo has gone ahead and hired a voice actor for the traditionally silent Metroid: Other M star Samus Aran, we suppose it makes sense that they want to make the most of her talents. What better than to let the now-verbose heroine narrate a retrospective of her adventures with space jellyfish?

Not only is it a nice summary of Metroid series events leading up to Other M (that is, Metroid, Metroid II: Return of Samus and Super Metroid), but it clues you in on the proper pronunciation of Zebes. Protip: it's not "zeebs." Thanks, years of internalized reading.

Metroid: Other M is out in North America on August 31. We'll let you know if it turns out to be a "perfect Metroid experience" in our full review.
