More On Samus And Adam’s Relationship In Metroid: Other M

By Ishaan . August 3, 2010 . 5:24pm


Here’s more Other M footage from Comic-Con. A few observations that stood out from the video:


1. Samus sees Adam as a father figure? I always felt Metroid: Fusion was hinting at some sort of romantic spark between the two of them. This…certainly changes things.


2. The Metroid Database forums noticed this picture on Adam’s desk. Who’s the new character?



3. “Communication channels will be limited to the facility’s navigation booths,” sounds a lot like the navigation rooms from Metroid: Fusion where you communicated with the computer.

    Okay, the whole “Father Figure” thing struck me as odd, too. Maybe their relationship develops during Other M? If it goes from father figure to romantic, that could be kind of awkward, especially in the hands of Team Ninja, who are somewhat inept story-wise.

      I seriously doubt that.
      But we’ll see in 27 more days….

      I’m sure sakamoto did the story part.

  • Ugh, time to rewrite all of my Samus x Adam fanfiction agaaaaain

    To be honest, I never really thought that it would be a romantic relationship. It seems like lead females in games rarely have love interests.

    I had always assumed that Samus saw Adam more like a mentor than anything else – kind of like the relationship between Snake and The Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3. I never really understood all the people who thought Samus and Adam were romantically involved. Samus just doesn’t seem like the romantic type.

    I always felt from Fusion that Samus to Adam was more like Rebecca to Chris from Resident Evil; something like colleagues, with her as a subordinate/junior. If they decide to develop it into a romantic relationship I’d be heavily disillusioned.

    I never cared about Adam in Fusion. What makes them think I’m going to care now?

    Oh, and hopefully that thing about the communication channels won’t mean it will be linear like Fusion. Seriosuly, the very last thing they need to do, is take some pages from Fusion. That game is probably better left forgotten.

    Samus’s potential love interest in the photo?
