Nintendo has shared a brand new trailer for their upcoming 2D action platformer, Metroid Dread. This trailer provides an overview of what enthused players can expect from the full adventure, detailing the premise, several gameplay mechanics, and notable elements of the narrative. This certainly seems to be an ambitious title, and I can not wait to experience a brand new 2D Metroid adventure in what feels like eons.
A variety of new gameplay footage is showcased too, and the sheer polish is astounding.
You can view the overview trailer for Metroid Dread below:
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 coming to Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021.
