Trailer: Metroid Dread out now on Switch

The long awaited, and formerly cancelled Metroid Dread finally makes its way to a Nintendo console today, as the side-scroller hits the Switch.

Dread arrives

In the Metroid Dread game, the story of Samus Aran continues after the events of the Metroid Fusion game, as she descends upon planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation and search for the lost research team. After a harrowing encounter with a living Chozo – a race previously thought to be extinct – she wakes up deep below the surface of the planet. The remote world is inhabited by vicious alien lifeforms and chilling mechanical menaces, including the imposing E.M.M.I., DNA-extracting research machines that are now hunting Samus.

While traversing the many environments of planet ZDR, players will acquire new and familiar abilities, like the new Storm Missile or classic Speed Booster. Return to areas and use abilities to find upgrades, alternate paths and a way forward. Explore the sprawling map, evade and destroy E.M.M.I. robots and overcome the dread plaguing ZDR.

Nintendo

Metroid Dread is out now, in both physical and digital format on the Switch.
