Metroid: Other M wasn’t a good game – I think most of us who aren’t blinded by pure fanboyism can agree on that. Fortunately, if today’s Internet rumors hold any sort of validity, it seems that Samus may be given a second chance to redeem herself on Nintendo’s newest handheld. Word on the street is that a new Metroid title will be revealed this coming Wednesday at Nintendo’s 3DS preview conference in Amsterdam, and N-Heads around the world are going nuts because of it. While it’s pure speculation at this point, it seems that Jonathan Ross, host of the conference, has been tweeting like a fiend and dropping hints left and right that the game may in fact exist.
Let’s take a look at some of his tweets so you can be the judge and jury on this one:
I have been invited by Nintendo to host a conference next week that gives out info on the 3DS. Tried it yesterday! Booyah!
Tweet # 2
What I can say about 3DS is that the 3D is far better than I would have thought possible without glasses. Can be switched to regular 2D!

The games that seem to benefit the most are the driving and shooting games – the perspective makes it all feel more accurate
Tweet # 4
A few other faves coming as well – plus a few unexpected revivals!
A fan following Ross’s tweets had this to say:
It’s absolutely fine, I don’t expect you to spill anything, it’s nice to have a surprise. I have my fingers crossed for Metroid..
Here’s what Ross had to say in response to that:
I think you’re going to be pleased then…
Oh em gee, could it mean that Metroid will make a showing this coming Wednesday? Well, perhaps, but it seems there was a bit of a “mixup” in the midst of all this tweeting madness. Another fan interjected and tried to clear things up a bit:
You started a lot of 3DS rumours! You meant @_________ will be pleased about general surprises not about a Metroid 3DS didn’t you?
To which, Jonathan Ross replied:
yes. Why? Did he think I meant new Meteoid [sic]?
Now, this could mean that there was indeed some miscommunication happening amongst all the posts, but if you ask us, it looks like Ross was doing a bit of damage control.
