After a terribly long wait (even longer than fans probably realized, in fact), “Metroid Dread” is finally coming to Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. The game marks the fifth mainline entry in the “Metroid” franchise, continuing the story from where it left off in “Metroid Fusion.” Samus Aran has survived her encounter with the SA-X and the X parasites and has returned to making the galaxy a safer place to live.
The new game will pit the intergalactic bounty hunter against a bevy of new threats, including unstoppable mechanical enemies called the E.M.M.I. In order to survive, she’ll need to rely on every weapon in her arsenal, as well as some new abilities. Luckily for fans of the action-packed exploration franchise, Nintendo has been keeping players updated on what they can expect in Samus’ next adventure with a series of behind the scenes reports.
In Nintendo’s fifth “Metroid Dread” Report, the developers have detailed a number of Samus’ new powers and equipment, as well as a peek at the cause of the latest threat to the galaxy. Here’s everything Nintendo revealed in “Metroid Dread” Report Volume 5.
