New Metroid Dread Trailer is Intense, Exhilarating, and Amps Up the Hype Considerably

Nintendo has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Metroid Dread, the latest 2D outing the franchise has to offer. This trailer is honestly amazing, as it features the return of the iconic Kraid and introduces a superb, antagonistic-seeming Chozo wearing lustrous armor. Even more gameplay is shown off as well, with the morph ball, missiles, and general movement being especially highlighted.

This title is truly shaping up to be the ultimate 2D Metroid experience. For now, however, we can only await the game’s full release.

You can view the new Metroid Dread trailer 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.
