Nintendo has a thing with making Metroid commercials awesome. Here is a look at the new, live action Metroid: Other M commercial, as well as a few blasts from the past…including Metroid Prime, Metroid Fusion, and Metroid 2: Echoes (from Germany). All four are live action based, but in my opinion, Nintendo really outdid themselves with their most recent effort.
They did such a good job with this one that it really makes me wish that they would hook up with a film director and company that would work hand in hand with them and create the ultimate sci-fi film. The Metroid franchise has the cool factor, it has a sexy heroine, and it now has more story than ever. When you factor these in together, it seems like an eventual movie would make quite a bit of sense. For now though, enjoy the following commercials:
Metroid: Other M‘s commercial is superb.
You see a lot of story behind Other M’s commercial. It starts off with Zero Suit Samus walking down a battlfield, takes a turn at her reminiscing about her time with her former squad (which is a scene straight out of the game), and ends with some great gameplay segments. Watching this commercial once again, really makes me wish that a talented studio worked with Nintendo to create a live action Metroid movie.
You don’t need to understand what’s going onMetroid Prime: 2 Echoes‘ German commercial; it’s simple but cool.
Metriod Prime 2: Echoes’ German commercial focuses more on Samus the human becoming Samus the heroine, as pieces of her armor attach to her in a cool manner. It still holds up despite being several years old.
Metroid Fusion has the most action packed baddy encounter.
Metroid Fusion for Game Boy Advance had a cool live action commercial that was almost a follow up to 2001′s Metroid Prime piece. It was all about action this time around, that ended with some Samus vs. Samus action.
Metroid Prime, you still do me proud.
Metroid Prime had the coolest live action commercial of its day and looking back at this almost decade old GameCube game, the title itself remains high in gaming history’s elite list. This was the first time I really wanted to see Metroid go to theaters in a full on film and it was fitting that Nintendo marketed the game in movie theaters. In fact, I own the action commercial real for movie projectors of Metroid Prime.
