To be more specific, Other M is being developed by Project M, a collaborative development group assembled in by Nintendo solely for the development of Other M. The development group consists of Team Ninja, Nintendo SPD, and D-Rockets. Metroid alum Yoshio Sakamoto, who is the project manager/producer, describes the origins of the team:

It was at that time that I realized I needed to find a partner help me realize my concept.
