Wii exclusive Metroid: Other M will be released in Europe on 3rd September, Nintendo has confirmed.

The Team Ninja/Nintendo collaboration blends Ninja Gaiden-style gameplay with Metroid's well-known platforming and puzzle-solving.

You can switch from third-person to first-person views by changing the way you hold the Wii Remote.

And, of course, you can turn into a little ball.

The story begins immediately following the events of classic platforming shooter Super Metroid, when a baby Metroid gave its life to protect Samus. The game's got English voice acting and more than one hour of rendered cut-scenes.

Be sure to check out Eurogamer's hands-on of the game from February, but not before you have a gander at the gameplay trailer below.
