The newest entry in the Metroid series, Other M, has been delayed and will hit stores on about August 31st. The game is closer to the original 2D-style Metroid games, and is played primarily by holding the Wii remote sideways. There are also some first-person sections thrown in. The game has been promised to delve deeper in Samus’ largely unknown story. And for all you timeline buffs, the game takes place between Super Metroid (SNES) and Metroid Fusion (GBA).
