Publisher and developer Nintendo has announced the latest 2D entry in the Metroid franchise, Metroid Dread, currently has a free demo available on the title’s store page via the eShop. It’s a bit odd that a demo has launched so long after release, but well, if you haven’t been sold on Metroid Dread already, then this demo will probably be all that can nudge you in the right direction. Regardless, demos are always nice to see for more prospective buyers to finalize their decisions.
Metroid Dread is confirmed to be the finale of the Samus Saga, which consists of Metroid, Metroid 2: Return of Samus, Super Metroid, and Metroid Fusion. The ‘Dread’ part of the title specifically refers to how Samus is being hunted throughout the title by robot enemies known as E.M.M.I.
Little is known about these foes, but Samus will have to use stealth elements, such as hiding from enemies via the Phantom Cloak that acts as camouflage. Also, there could be some tension between Samus and the Galactic Federation as they seem to have played a role in creating the E.M.M.I.
Metroid Dread is now available on Nintendo Switch.
