Nintendo E3 2021 Presentation- Metroid Dread

Metroid fans have been desperately clinging to hope for a new Metroid installment for many years. Interestingly, Metroid remains a hugely popular franchise, however, in recent years Nintendo has put it on the back burner to focus on its other projects.

However, now new details have been revealed regarding the latest Metroid game. Fans were given a glimpse into the new game through a short presentation, which gave us some exciting information.

Metroid Dread will be the first 2D Metroid game in around 19 years, but will feel familiar for those who have played the previous side-scrollers. After all, it is a continuation of the core Metroid series.

The short gameplay trailer showed a menacing white robot pursuing Samus. To escape she used abilities to climb walls, turn invisible and, the classic, turning into a ball. Let’s hope there are plenty more new abilities too!

Additionally Nintendo revealed the release date. Metroid Dread will come out on October 8 2021.
