Metroid Dread is the first 2D style Metroid game in the last 2 decades. However, the game was surprisingly intended to release on Nintendo DS, back in 2002. Pitched as a sequel to Metroid Fusion, which was a Gameboy Advance game released around the same time. Series creator Yoshio Sakamoto confirmed today that the project has now been revived with the amazing developer MecurySteam (behind Metroid Samus Returns & Castlevania: Lord of Shadow).

In the trailer, we see that players are going to be thrown into a brand-new planet, with what seems to be an extremely powerful hunter robot called E.M.M.I. The theme of the trailer seems to follow the appropriately titled theme of ‘Dread’ in that enemies seem like they will be ruthless with some enemies requiring you to run from them. We also see that this trailer refers to the game as the 5th entry to the core series, with a screen quickly displaying Metroid 5, before flicking off. It amazing to see this series revived, with both this title available this year and Metroid Prime 4 slated for roughly next year.

Metroid Dread will be releasing exclusively for Nintendo Switch on October 8th and alongside this, Nintendo will also be releasing two new Amiibo figures at the same time. One figure shows the new slick design for Samus and the other showing the robot we see multiple times across the trailer E.M.M.I.
