With the release date rapidly approaching, fans are eager to see more of the brand new Metroid game. Earlier today, Nintendo released another new Metroid Dread trailer for the Nintendo Switch entitled “Find Your Power”. Running super-short at only 30 seconds, the new Metroid Dread trailer gives fans a look at some of the enemies Samus will have to take down in the game. Animal-like robots aside, the new trailer shows Samus facing off against a scorpion-like alien with a thrashing tail and poisonous attacks as well as a crocodilian creature wearing a metal collar. The full trailer can be seen below!
In Metroid Dread, Samus drops onto an alien planet after receiving a disturbing video transmission:
The Galactic Federation dispatches a special unit consisting of seven E.M.M.I. robots to the remote planet ZDR, believed to be the source of the transmission. Soon after arriving on ZDR, the whole unit vanishes.
As the only one immune to the X parasite, intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran is sent in to find out what happened. Shortly after landing, a mysterious foe traps Samus deep below the surface of this dangerous world. Now, Samus must hunt or be hunted as she makes her way through a labyrinth of enemies to reach the surface.”
Metroid Dread is scheduled for release on the Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. A digital preorder is now available for $59.99. GameStop has a special edition preorder available for $89.99 that includes the physical game, a “haunting” steel game case, five high-quality art cards with key art for each 2D Metroid game, and a 190-page art book spanning all five entries in the 2D Metroid saga.
