Metroid: Other M UK date narrowed

Magazine advert spills beans.

Wii action game Metroid: Other M will be out in the UK in September, Nintendo has confirmed.

The news was first reported by MCV, which spotted the release window in an advert in its own magazine. Fancy that.

Nintendo told us the September release window is accurate, which makes it all official like.

It means European gamers will be able to get their Samus Aran freak on only a few weeks after our American gaming cousins; Other M is out in the states on 31st August.

Metroid: Other M is the first game in the popular series to be developed by a third-party developer, Team Ninja.

In truth it's more of a collaboration between the Ninja Gaiden developer and IP-owner Nintendo.

Last week designers Yoshio Sakamoto and Yosuke Hayashi told Eurogamer about their desire to leave their own mark on the famous series, which they hope to do by approaching familiar elements in new ways and investing in the character and story of Samus Aran.
