The folks over at the Metroid Database have gone ahead and translated another Japanese piece of Metroid media, this time directing their efforts toward the Metroid: Other M concept art gallery, which they ripped from the game.
If you look through it, you’ll find some fun oddities that are a result of director Yoshio Sakamoto’s oddball sense of humour, like a mention of Waver courting rituals and flaming poo. The concept gallery also points out some interesting facts, such as how elevators in Other M were designed to feel like “safe zones” for the player.
Oh, one I liked is the concept for young Samus, which points out her “wild dog feel”.
Another concept — one for the Zero Suit — suggests linking the glowing of the suit patterns to Samus’ movements. You can find the entire gallery of translated concepts at the Metroid Database.
