Metroid: Other M takes place between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion?

Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto has said he'd 'encourage' Retro Studios - developer of the Metroid Prime games - to come up with another idea for the series.

'With regards to the Prime series, if the team at Retro comes up with an idea that does bring a sequel to the series to fruition, I by all means encourage them to do that,' he said.

'But I'm not directly involved with the Prime games. In terms of the Metroid series stories that I've told, the games that I've been involved in, I started with the NES Metroid and took it through Fusion.

'I'm hoping to tie the Super Metroid and Fusion stories together, and until I do that I can't think about what happens after Fusion, but if the concept does come to me I'd like to continue the story and see how far it can go,' he told Wired.

Sakamoto also spoke of his aims with the upcoming (and sweet-looking) Metroid Other M. 'Within the greater Metroid series, the Other M story will tie together the stories that took place in Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion,' he said.

'One of my goals is to present Samus as an appealing human character, and that involves explaining a little bit about what happened in her past as well as the characters that influenced her. The story will play a big part.'
