Metroid is DOA?

Okay, so in this instance I'm referring to the game Dead or Alive and not the fact that the Metroid series is seemingly dead on arrival after that last entry, Other M. Because let's face it, Other M was an awful entry into Samus' canon. What I'm referring to is an apparent level in the forthcoming Dead or Alive Dimensions for the Nintendo 3DS themed upon Metroid, including a constantly hovering appearance by Ridley! After the disappointing turn on the Wii by Team Ninja, it seems surprising that Nintendo would allow them to continue using the property. But then again, that's business for you. I'm sure there's some sort of contractual stipulation overflow from Other M that gives Team Ninja rights to do so. Regardless, I'm just happy this go-around is much more measured. At least Samus won't be a playable character. Speaking of having Samus as a playable character in a fighting game, I just had a thought as to how awesome a portable Smash Brothers title would be on the 3DS! Here's hoping that comes to light within the first year of the device's lifespan. Watch the video below examining the Metroid-themed stage.
