Metroid Dread: Trailer, release date, Special Edition and more


Metroid Dread (or Metroid 5, take your pick) was one of the biggest surprises from E3 2021 Nintendo Direct livestream. It’s been four years since the last 2D Metroid game (Samus Returns on 3DS) and 19 years since the last 2D Metroid game that wasn’t a remake (Metroid Fusion on GBA). But before the year is out, we’ll have a brand-new 2D Metroid game that looks like it’ll pick up where Fusion left off, and finally tie up some story threads that have been hanging loose for two decades.

At present, all we have of the game is a single trailer and a few words of context from the Nintendo executives who introduced it. But that trailer includes a fair bit of gameplay, as well as some context clues about the game’s setting and premise. Here’s what we know about Metroid Dread so far, and what we still hope to learn.
