At its E3 2021 Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed a new entry in the Metroid series: Metroid Dread. It’s set to release on October 8th of this year.
In a short but action-packed trailer, protagonist Samus Aran faced off against a giant and terrifying white robot that chased her throughout the level. The game looked to play similarly to the 3DS game Metroid: Samus Returns. You can catch the Metroid Dread trailer in the tweet below.
Nintendo also shared that the company is still at work on Metroid Prime 4, which was first revealed for Nintendo Switch in a brief video in June 2017 — yes, four years ago. That game is likely still a ways out from release, as it was rebooted in January 2019. As part of that announcement, Nintendo said that it had put Retro Studios, the developers of the original Metroid Prime trilogy, back at the helm.
