More than just the fifth part in the franchise, Metroid Dread will eventually conclude the overall story.
During its E3 2021 reveal, the initial trailer for the upcoming entry showed two titles. Firstly it displayed “Metroid 5,” and then fans got to see the main label of Metroid Dread.
The idea of Nintendo behind such a promotion was that it wanted to clarify what the next game is linked to the base title. Not just that, but it will also mark an end to the overall story.
During the reveal, Metroid developer Yoshio Sakamoto discussed protagonist Samus Aran and her relation with classic Metroid creatures. But most importantly, he said that Metroid Dread “will mark an end” to the original story arc.
The announcement might imply that there won’t be an extension of the past storyline, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new Metroid games.
Because Metroid Prime 4 is still in active development at Retro Studios for Nintendo Switch.
Dread will be the first new 2D game in the series since Zero Mission launched in 2004.
Players who want to know the entire narrative so far can go through all the past installments before they grab the next title. They are currently available on Nintendo Switch Online service.
Additionally, they can also play Metroid: Samus Returns in case they own a Nintendo 3DS.
While fans of the Metroid series are waiting for the new entry, other gaming enthusiasts are currently looking forward to a wave of fresh releases.
However, the extensive line-up extends even further with the likes of Humankind, No More Heroes 3, and Back 4 Blood.
Psychonauts 2, GhostWire: Tokyo, Dying Light 2, Deathloop, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and The Ascent are other crucial launches.
Coming back to Metroid Dread then it will release on October 8 for Nintendo Switch.
