Nintendo has finally announced the release date for Metroid: Other M in the UK and Europe following a loose release window revealed last week.
The space shooter adventure title will head to retail on Friday September 3rd. This puts it on the European market four days after its US launch, confirmed as August 31st during Nintendo's E3 press conference.
Metroid: Other M has been developed by the original Metroid creators at Nintendo and Team Ninja, which produces the Dead or Alive fighting franchise. The game merges 2D platforming and FPS gameplay while holding true to the series' themes of exploration and acquiring new powers.
Players can move and fight in third person by holding the Wii Remote sideways. By aiming the controller at the screen, the game switches to a first-person viewpoint.
Metroid: Other M is the latest Nintendo Metroid game following the Prime trilogy.
