Metroid Dread receives first North American commercial
Nintendo is ramping up its advertising efforts for Metroid Dread and has now come out with the game’s very first North American commercial. Also, seeing how it’s coming out on the same day, the Big N is using the advert as a way of promoting the new Switch OLED model as well.
Here’s an overview of Metroid Dread:
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. The remote planet 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 threat 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 down. 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
Acquire new and familiar abilities as you traverse the many environments of this dangerous world. Parkour over obstacles, slide through tight spaces, counter enemies, and battle your way through the planet.
