Metroid Dread official at E3 2021 — launches on Switch in October


I never thought this day would come. At E3 2021 at its Direct event, Nintendo revealed a huge surprise for Metroid fans. Metroid Dread is back from the dead and it’s coming this year to the Switch. 

This is first new 2D Metroid since Metroid Fusion in 2002. There was Samus Returns for the 3DS, but that was a remake of Metroid II. So Metroid Dread is 19 years in the making. Long-time fans will recognize the name, as it was the rumored successor to Metroid Fusion back in the day. It supposedly featured a darker story, leaning into the horror elements that Fusion introduced.
