From the Perspective of the Space Pirates...

Finally some Metroid news. Today Nintendo of Japan launched a new site for the Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii. There's finally a page and some trailers for the upcoming New Play Control title Metroid Prime, which looks now exactly like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in terms of controls and gameplay. This is going to be a blast, I can't wait. But that's not all, the new official Metroid site holds a teaser for something new. It shows a picture of a cool looking Space Pirate next to the text "Another Side Story -coming soon-". The Japanese text below says "The Metroid Prime history followed from the perspective of the space pirates." Well, no one is sure, if that's supposed to be a game or not. My best guess would be, that it's an E-Manga like the one we got for Metroid: Zero Mission. But you could also hope, that it's a game, maybe a 2D side scrolling Metroid spin off for WiiWare where you play a Space Pirate, who knows? All I know is, that the concept sounds pretty damn promising, because you could experience stuff, you normally wouldn't see in a Metroid game following Samus. Want to learn how the Space Pirates are organized? Or want to participate in the Phazon experiments and be part of the team, who attacked the Valhalla to the steal Aurora Unit 313? So, whatever this teaser will reveal, I will definitely check it out.
