Metroid Dread – First New 2D Game In Series In 19 Years on Nintendo Switch

Metroid Dread was released on October 8th. The game was developed in collaboration with Nintendo by the Spanish studio MercurySteam, known for Clive Barker’s Jericho, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Metroid: Samus Returns.

In Dread, the bounty hunter Samus Aran travels to the hostile planet 3DR, which, in addition to monsters, is inhabited by E.M.M.I. robots, capable of chasing the heroine throughout the level like the Titan from Resident Evil 2. The storyline of the game continues Metroid Fusion, released in 2002.

In terms of gameplay, there are no major changes – the player still explores the world, fights with opponents and gains skills to get to previously inaccessible locations.

  • Metroid Dread is sold in a digital store for 5,399 RUB, and in retail stores like M.Video you can get a cartridge for 3,999 rubles.
  • Critics gave the game a high rating, with a Metacritic score of 88 out of 100.
