The long-rumored 2.5D Metroid Nintendo Switch game is real, and it’s called Metroid Dread (recalling a name used for an un-released game years ago). Revealed during today’s E3 2021 Nintendo Direct, the game looks to hearken back to the classic Metroid experience, similar to what we saw with Metroid: Samus Returns for Nintendo 3DS in 2017. However, that game was a remake, while this new entry will be a completely new entry. While it’s not exactly the Metroid Prime 4 news we’ve all been hoping for, this should at least give fans something to chew on when it launches Oct. 8, 2021. Plus, we’ll get to see more during Nintendo Treehouse Live following today’s Direct. For more information, you can watch the Metroid Dread reveal trailer below.
