If you’re still not convinced we’re getting a new 2D Metroid game this year, here’s some more evidence: Nintendo just released a brand new teaser for Metroid Dread dubbed ‘A Glimpse of Fear Part 1,’ showing off a strange mural and flashes of Chozo lore.
And, of course, Samus in an elevator.
“Samus’ story continues after the events of the Metroid™ Fusion game when she descends upon planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation. The remote planet has become overrun by vicious alien lifeforms and chilling mechanical menaces. Samus is more agile and capable than ever, but can she overcome the inhuman threat stalking the depths of ZDR?”
Metroid Dread will release on Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. You can find out more over at Nintendo.
