Metroid Dread

It’s been a long, long time coming, but Metroid Dread is finally out now. Nineteen years after the launch of the last new 2D Metroid title and over a decade since the launch of the last new mainline Metroid game, the series is finally back with a completely fresh story to tell. Check out its launch trailer below.

Metroid Dread is the fifth entry in the long-running 2D Metroid saga, which began way back with the original Metroid in 1986. Dread serves as the conclusion to that saga, though according to series producer Yoshio Sakamoto, it also sets up new plotlines for the series to take up in future instalments. The game sees Samus travelling to Planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious video informing them of the X parasite’s presence on the planet, though the relentless and terrifying E.M.M.I. robots will make things more than a little difficult for her.

Metroid Dread is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You won’t need too much storage space on your Switch to download the game, so go ahead and clear out that little bit of space for it.
