It looks like it jumps from Third to First person... and from 3D roaming to 2D platforming in the same way Sonic Unleashed did.
I can't say I'm hyped too much for this, despite being a huge Metroid fan... Retro did the series the best credit with the Prime series, and even if this is a new direction for the franchise, I'm not sure that Metroid would ever benefit from being more like Dead or Alive... even if it does show some of Ms Aran's backstory (note to that, the dude who calls Samus 'Lady' is Adam, from the game Metroid Fusion').
I just hope that Shiggy knows what he's doing in handing over the Metroid keys to Team Ninja....
all i know is this game will take place BEFORE metroid fusion from that guy (Adam and not the Adam from here on the forums)saying any objections lady? and she makes a program named after him in fusion after he dies. if you don't know wtf I'm saying play metroid fusion it will explain all
