Oh yeah, those look great. Samus' proportions did change in the transition to 3D. Then OtherM only made her suit even slimmer. I'd love to get some of that bulk back. It makes her overall silhouette way more interesting.
Yeah totally.

I also need to mention another favorite, the Metroid Fusion design. It's sleek, yet still muscular and doesn't have the lanky proportions like the prime version.

I don't know if that's particularly possible since I don't know how similar the assets are between the three games are. that sounds like a lot more work, but if Toys For Bob could do it for Spyro, then I guess this could be done?
I mean, if Namco is doing it to keep the games uniform, that means they are revamping the first trilogy, and at that rate where do they stop? And yeah, that's a good question, but with good asset design they could do miracles.

The screen fades in on smoke-covered battleground.
A Federation Trooper battles against a dozen pirates but is overwhelmed and falls to the ground.
Just as he's about to be killed Samus leaps in and annihilates all of the pirates.
Suddenly 3 pirates riding atop Mother Brain dinosaur mode Aurora Units appear and blindside Samus, knocking her to the ground.
The Aurora Units charge hyper beams and blast Samus simultaneously- obliterating her.
Samus' cracked, blood-soaked helmet rolls across the ground and bumps into a set of orange-armored feet.
A hand reaches down to pick up the helmet and the camera pans up to reveal it's another Samus.
The camera pans out further to reveal hundreds of Samuses fighting hundreds of pirates.
The camera zooms out to reveal that the planet is actually a giant Samus in morph ball form.
Voiceover- "After Samus succumbed to the effects of the Space Pirates' giantification experiments and became a planet, the Federation went ahead with their Samus cloning project and created a clone army."
The camera pans out further to reveal Sylux's ship.
Inside Sylux's cockpit. Sylux reaches up to remove its helmet.
"The Federation must be stopped. After all, there must be only one Samus."
Sylux removes helmet to reveal she, too, is a Samus clone.

Play as Sylux as she tries to stop the Federation and Space Pirates in an epic single-player adventure or join your friends online as a Samus Clone Trooper in massive co-op battles!

Tears roll down Tanabe's face.

:P

Calling it that Other M Samus was a defective clone. It makes perfect sense that way!

I can't stay up for another 2 and half hours. I could play more World of Light but I am getting tired because it's already 1 AM.

Fuck the TGAs I hope everything is cancelled.

Yeah totally.

I also need to mention another favorite, the Metroid Fusion design. It's sleek, yet still muscular and doesn't have the lanky proportions like the prime version.
I like the concept of the Fusion suit, but I don't like the execution in the original promo art. Ends up just seemingly kind of flat and amorphous, I don't get much of a statement from the design.
The sprite work in-game hints at a design more interesting than the accompanying art, with an almost iridescent beetle shell shine of blues and greens that is not carried over into the closeups.

Though that aspect was eventually revisited in art for Samus Returns. I do really like the art for this redesign of it. Better silhouette, more confident shapes, and differences in texture between materials. It wasn't translated well into 3DS graphics but this art is my favorite depiction of the fusion suit.


And then its ultimate form brings back the classic scheme while retaining the smooth and sleek organic look.

Definitely one of my favorite suits. I especially love the Gravity Suit rendition Mercury Steam did.




Sounds like a good plan. Do you have a discord account?

edit: also if we're doing favorite suits; I made a handy dandy suit timeline you can pick from :)
Just got home.

I don't at the moment, but for now you can hit me up through PMs (if they work, I haven't used them yet in 2.0)

Not gonna lie, her Other M suit is the slickest of the bunch. Just perfectly proportioned and modernized in all the right ways.

I played Samus Returns, but this is the first time I've seen that artwork. Those look really nice too.

The concept art is precisely how the fusion suit looks in Samus Returns. In Metroid Fusion you couldn't tell it was still metal, but you very much see all the intended design aspects of it in it's cameo in SR.

I'm only going so far to assume the controls changed. The way irman spoke, it sounded like multiple studios have a hand in it. I don't think Bamco is doing it, but providing a blueprint for their control scheme for the studio that is
