Metroid: Dread Announced June 15, 2021

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

I thought it was a rumor. I thought it was a gag left over in the original Metroid Prime game data. I thought it was cancelled. Well, it wasn’t, and this isn’t a joke. Today, Nintendo has officially announced Metroid: Dread, which you may better refer to as…Metroid 5.

Metroid: Dread will be a 2D Metroid platformer in the same vein as Metroid: Samus Returns with an art style that reminds me of the classic GBA game Metroid: Fusion (which was considered Metroid 4). But this game is for the Nintendo Switch and it looks just great.

Update: Here’s a developer interview about the game!

UPDATE 2: Here are two previews of actual gameplay straight from Treehouse Live!

Metroid: Dread is NOT Metroid Prime 4, that game is still in development.

Metroid: Dread is coming October 2021 exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
