Apart from the console refresh launch, the latest Metroid franchise, Metroid Dread is also out now. Metroid Dread follows intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran as she descends to a new planet to investigate a mysterious transmission. The Metroid series is a sci-fi epic filled with satisfying exploration, breathless action and an unforgettable story. Metroid Dread concludes the thrilling story arc, focusing on the strange interconnected fates of Samus and the Metroids, and can be equally enjoyed by both longtime fans and newcomers to the series.

The story of Samus Aran continues after the events of the Metroid Fusion game, as she descends upon planet ZDR to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation and search for the lost research team. After a harrowing encounter with a living Chozo – a race previously thought to be extinct – she wakes up deep below the surface of the planet. The remote world is inhabited by vicious alien lifeforms and chilling mechanical menaces, including the imposing E.M.M.I., DNA-extracting research machines that are now hunting Samus.

While traversing the many environments of planet ZDR, players will acquire new and familiar abilities, like the new Storm Missile or classic Speed Booster. Return to areas and use 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.

Metroid Dread is now available in stores, in Nintendo eShop or at Nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Metroid Dread: Special Edition is also now available at a suggested retail price of $89.99.
