Metroid Dread is the latest instalment in Nintendo’s long-running Metroid series and has been highly anticipated by fans. This action-adventure game follows Samus Aran on another mission to save her home planet from an alien threat. Metroid Dread combines classic gameplay elements with new features and looks really good. It is set to be one of the most exciting entries in the franchise yet.
The core gameplay mechanics remain largely unchanged from previous titles. Players will explore a variety of environments while using Samus’ special abilities to progress through levels, defeat enemies, and solve puzzles along their journey.
You’ll quickly master all your weapons as you battle against deadly foes across multiple planets with tight but intuitive controls. The improved combat mechanics allow you to engage in more strategic battles against tougher opponents than ever before as new additions to the classic elements.
In typical Metroid fashion, players take control of intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran, who must once again save her homeworld, Zebes, from destruction at the hands of an ancient evil force known only as “Dread”.
Players will travel between different planets searching for clues about what happened centuries ago. Back then, their ancestors were forced out into space after being attacked by this mysterious enemy. They will uncover secrets which could help them ultimately put a stop to it once and for all time!
