Sakamoto says Other M sequel is possible
‘Sequel dependant on direction of Metroid’
In an interview with CVG, co-creator and developer Yoshio Sakamoto has discussed the likelihood of a sequel to Other M.
There’s always the possibility and if the opportunity comes I’m very willing to work with Team Ninja once again. As far as my opinion is concerned if we are going to make something similar to Metroid Other M in the future I cannot think that it would be possible for Nintendo to make it without collaborating with Team Ninja. Afterall they are that good a partner to us and we are pretty valuable to them as well.
However, the problem of the direction of the next Metroid game has also popped up. Sakamoto has said that if the next Metroid game follows on from Other M, then Team Ninja will be the first choice to create the game. However, if they decide to go for a different story, then more likely than not Team Ninja will not be behind the game.
Other M was released a few days ago, and despite missing out on the Top 10 in Europe has recieved positive reviews. Would you like to see a sequel to Other M?
