Metroid: Other M dates, pre-order bonuses and the Metroid manual

Metroid: Other MGood news! Nintendo have revealed the local Japanese release date for Metroid: Other M - September 2, 2010. That's only two days after the US release on August 31, not bad! They've also heavily updated the official Japanese Metroid website, giving it some much-needed content in the form of some new pics, plenty of up-close shots of all those pretty CGI cutscenes and two haunting new musical pieces by Kuniaki Haishima - and they're orchestrated!

Most of the site's sections bear coming soon messages, so hopefully we'll see more revealed on the site leading up to the game's release. A translated version for all the other official Metroid sites would be very welcome too...

Gamestop have also apparently begun a pre-order bonus campaign - pre-order now and your reward is an art folio of 16 pieces depicting scenes from the game. Special thanks to Varia31 and the MDb for the news!

In other news, I've finished scanning the final instruction manual - this one for the very first Metroid.
