You can view the newest trailer for Metroid Dread below:

Metroid Dread is confirmed to be the finale of the Samus Saga, which consists of MetroidMetroid 2: Return of SamusSuper 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 coming to Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021.
