On August 31, Nintendo's collaboration with Team Ninja, Metroid: Other M, hits store shelves. Our copy arrived today, and you can expect our review on Friday, August 27, so keep an eye out.
In the meantime, I wanted to give you guys a look at the limited edition "art folio" that will be given to folks who pre-order the game. Nintendo sent one -- a set of 16 art cards -- along, and it's a nice little collectible freebie for Metroid fans. The cards feature Other M concept art work, screenshots, and descriptive blurbs (as if I written by Metroid heroine Samus herself) on the back.
I know there's some hesitation over Metroid: Other M, which is bit of a new direction for the series. Who here is already planning it up, or will you be waiting for the reviews?
