As we impatiently wait for the arrival of Metroid Dread on the Switch, we have a new trailer that must be pretty good, as it’s made us even more impatient!
The game was originally teased way, way back in the GameCube days as the successor to Metroid Fusion. Sure, it isn’t the much-anticipated Metroid Prime 4 (that’s still coming), but a new, classically-styled 2D Metroid game is welcome anytime.
Metroid Dread will conclude the five-part saga of Samus and the Metroids, which commenced way back in the NES days of the original Metroid. This time out, Samus heads to a remote planet where she’s hunted by a new mechanical threat in the form of E.M.M.I. robots. In the style that we’ve become accustomed to, we’ll be able to return to previously explored areas once powered up to discover more and more of this mysterious world, and hopefully emerge victorious.
Switch exclusive Metroid Dread hits on October 8. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
