So I find out today why Ninja Gaiden 3 is taking so long. Team Ninja is doing the new Metroid game. And wouldn't you know it, I start sentences with and. Fuck you Mrs. Dalton (7th grade english teacher).
This looks like Ninja Gaiden with guns. I mean it looks EXACTLY like Ninja Gaiden with guns. Even the levels look straight out of the first Ninja Gaiden Xbox game:

Holy fuck that's awesome. It looks like they're going back to a platform style, so it's like Super Metroid but in 3d, which is what they should have fuckin done with the last bunch of games anyway.
That video gave me some serious nostalgia.
EDIT: No, the levels are not taken from Ninja Gaiden. That's some straight up old-school Metroid.
