If the game fails to sell more than 2mil units then they will put the franchise on "Ice Climbers" status. The game is developed by Team Ninja and Published by Nintendo. Sakamoto is not in charge and, instead, Sakurai takes the reigns.

I'd love another Other M style Metroid. Frankly, I thought Other M was awesome.

Sakamoto getting the boot is a good start, but do we really need another Metroidja Gaiden game? Pass.

It had better be good. And rewritten.
I used to say Waluigi sucked.
Then I took a golf ball to the knee.

Other M would not have been retconned. The game would take place after Fusion.

Meh. If it was as bad as the first one, I'd just ignore it and play other games.

It would need serious work, and the story needs to not be complete s***.

This kind of game could work, but if it was made like the Other M, or even had any slight relation to the story that utterly destroyed everything I ever liked about Samus, I wouldn't touch it.

The gameplay was horrible but with a lot of cleaning up could be... playable. There's just too many things to list in a post, but making the dodging more about reaction than mashing the button would be a good start, making it so you don't need to go first person to fire missiles would also be good, and making it so you neither need to nor have the option available to 'recharge health' would also be good.

Remove all the "where's waldo" sections. That has no place in any game, ever.

Make it so Samus starts without items and needs to earn them, like every other Metroid game ever.

Honestly, I doubt they could make a 'good' Metroid Other M. If they made one in the same style I would not buy it until it had great reviews and I was sure it wasn't a repeat in any way. Basically, I would buy Metroid Other M's sequel if it wasn't Metroid Other M in any shape or form except in the vague general style of gameplay.

Even if they did all of this, I am not sure if I'd buy the game. I really don't like the playstyle even if it was done well.
