Metroid: Dread (Switch)

SKU: SWH-MetroidDread-11


Join intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran in her first new 2D Metroid story in 19 years. Samus’ story continues after the events of the Metroid Fusion game when she descends upon planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation. After a harrowing encounter with a living Chozo—a race previously thought to be extinct—she ends up deep below the surface of the planet. The remote world has become overrun by vicious alien lifeforms and chilling mechanical menaces. Samus is more agile and capable than ever, but can she overcome the inhuman threats stalking the depths of ZDR? Face off against unrelenting E.M.M.I. robots. Once DNA-extracting research machines, the imposing E.M.M.I. are now hunting Samus. Tensions are high as you evade these E.M.M.I. to avoid a cruel death while finding a way to take them down. Find out what turned these robotic wonders into the scourge of ZDR and escape with your life.

Feel Samus’ power grow as you gain maneuvers and abilities. Parkour over obstacles, slide through tight spaces, counter enemies, and battle your way through a dangerous world. You’ll acquire new and familiar abilities as you traverse the many environments of ZDR. Blast multiple targets with the new Storm. Missile or use the Speed Booster to dash and break through walls. Return to areas and use your new abilities to find upgrades, alternate paths, and a way forward. Explore the sprawling map, evade and destroy E.M.M.I. robots, and overcome the dread plaguing ZDR. New modes let you ease into ZDR, experience true dread, or take on a boss gauntlet.
