Holy f**k. The bitch can talk. Samus Aran can talk!! I mean ACTUALLY TALK. Real words. Check this video out. Forward the movie clip to the point where the in game counter hits 56 seconds.
Well I’ll be damned if Nintendo didn’t go and make Samus into a sex pot! The tight figure hugging body suit and the uttering of phrases such as “Try me”, “Oooo, my…” and “Is that all!?” as she cracks a laser whip. Samus’ ‘operation: sexy back’ is in full effect. She always had the hot body, athleticism, killer instinct and cute face – now she has the sultry and sexy voice to match. If truth be told I always thought Samus was sexy. Even in the full on Varia suit and before I knew the person in the suit was a woman. (Yes. I’m f**ked up).
This opens the floodgates for Samus to talk in future installments of Metroid. I’m sure that there are Metroid fans who would want to hear Samus speak. I’m cool with whether she does or not. If she’s made to speak it would add a whole new colour and dimension to her character – which is all good. But if she’s kept as the silent bounty hunter – then it’s still all good. It’s a win, win situation.
