Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki has extended his blessing to the Team Ninja's recently-announced Metroid game, Other M.
The ex-Team Ninja head, now heading up a new studio founded by Tecmo refugees, 'Tokyo Vikings', is apparently a fan of the Nintendo series. It's a shame Itagaki didn't get to work on it himself, really.
"Metroid is a fantastic game that I played a lot on the Disk System when I was a child," he told 1UP. "I also know Mr. Sakamoto, the producer at Nintendo, very well. He fathered Samus Aran. He's been making games since I was a child, so he's a veteran I really respect.
"I think [Yosuke] Hayashi will learn a lot working with him. I hope Team Ninja works hard in making a good game," he said.
Metroid Other M, a collaboration between Nintendo's original Metroid team, Team Ninja and CGI house D-Rockets, was announced during Nintendo's pre-E3 conference last week.
