New Metroid Dread teaser video

Nintendo’s big title for the holiday season is the upcoming Metroid epic, Metroid Dread for the Nintendo Switch system. Today, the company unleashed a short and suitably epic teaser trailer for the 2D Metroid game which is due to launch on October 8th along with the new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) We’ve got just two months to go before we can get our hands on the first brand new 2D Metroid game in 19 years. Check out the teaser for Metroid Dread down below.

  1. Can’t wait for this game to come out. Just to make sure if people and some content creators play or stream the game early before the worldwide release date of the game, I’m gonna stay off the internet just in case since some greedy people refuses to learn and disrespect Nintendo policy.

  2. I recently played and finished Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Samus Returns, Super Metroid, and Metroid Fusion again all in anticipation for the release of Metroid Dread. Metroid Fusion was terribly underrated when it was released, it’s a great game and progresses the series nicely by finally giving Samus a personality and introducing new and exciting . Hopefully all of the games can get 3D remakes (yes including Samus Returns) with the Metroid Dread game engine. Metroid Dread Looks great, and I’m definitely looking forward to experiencing the mysteries of this story. I bet this game will be epic!, especially considering that it will be the conclusion to the “Metroid story”.

    1. The Fusion was designed was always going to get criticism from fans, as will Dread if it follows the same structure. Metroid as a series was all about a big massive place to explore, that you the player figure out. Fusion segmented the game into stages, and told the player where they were supposed to go and when they were supposed to go there. If you love the original Metroid on NES for what made it great, you probably hated Fusion because its just not the same kind of game at all. That’s not to say Fusion was bad, or that Dread will be bad if it is similar, but when you build a fan base around one way of making a game and then change it, obviously some of those people aren’t going to like the new direction.

  3. Ok I’m charging up my DS (gba slot) so I can replay fusion. Thought that maybe I’ll just play that one, but the last comment makes me realize I should replay zero mission too.

  4. This teaser confirms it even more for me: that was a live Chozo in the game. The question now becomes whether it’s a group of them or just a “last of their kind” type of thing. I hope it’s something akin to the Luminoth situation in MP2: Echoes where all but one is asleep as they need Samus to save them from going extinct. (Or Sammy has to wipe out the last of the Chozo because these surviving members are actually ones that retained their warrior status and are an actual threat to the universe.) Whatever the case is, this game can’t come out soon enough.

    1. Watched it again. The game is definitely tying back to those Chozo portraits in Samus Returns. Definitely was some kind of purge going on with the Chozo on SR388 by their own kind. Apparently old theories suggested SR388’s Chozo were wiped out by Metroids or X Parasites, but the Chozo memories in SR reveal differently.

      Maybe the secret ending with the X Parasite was also related to Dread, not a remake of Fusion like I previously thought. So maybe the X are legitimately on the planet in Dread.

  5. This is looking amazing. I like that it’s just a short teaser and not revealing too much. I hope they will keep doing this until release, and not release trailers that reveal almost anything, like they love to do. It’s so hard for me to not watch a Metroid trailer. 😑
