Nintendo has uploaded another new trailer for the upcoming, latest canonical entry in the Metroid series, Metroid Dread. This trailer showcases Samus on her ship with background being provided on the X Parasite, key entities that were prominent in the events of Metroid Fusion. The second half of the trailer reveals Samus to have either crash-landed or awakening from a curious incident with the coloration of her suit being different.
Regardless, it’s obvious Samus will have her hands full on this journey. Let’s just hope she prevails against the odds and survives.
You can view this newest Metroid Dread trailer in full 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.
