Metroid Dread +
Metroid Dread is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. It was originally in development for the Nintendo DS in the late 2000s, planned as the sequel to the 2002 Game Boy Advance game Metroid Fusion, but was never released. A message in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (2007) was interpreted as reference to Dread, though Retro staff variously referred to this as a coincidence or a joke.In 2010, series designer Yoshio Sakamoto confirmed that Dread had existed, but that staff would start from scratch if development resumed. Critics expressed an interest in seeing the game or a similar 2D side-scrolling Metroid game, and listed Metroid Dread in their "most wanted" list. Metroid returned to the side-scrolling format with Samus Returns (2017). Dread was announced at E3 2021 for release on Nintendo Switch in 2021.
