Where to preorder the Metroid Dread Standard and Special Edition

One of the biggest reveals from Nintendo’s E3 direct was Metroid Dread, the first 2D Metroid in nearly 20 years. It’s not Metroid Prime 4, but it should help you until we hear more about the title, and you can pre-order Metroid Dread now from the links below.

Pre-order Metroid Dread Standard and Special Edition

Metroid Dread is the main entry for all five 2D Metroid games and will be released on Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. It is developed by Mercury Steam, the same studio responsible for Metroid: Samus Returns on 3DS.

We learned a lot about Metroid Dread during its initial reveal, as well as the extended gameplay footage shown in Nintendo’s Treehouse presentation. It’s a direct sequel to the Gameboy Advance title, Metroid Fusion, which was released in 2002, so it should clear up some of the gaps in the story in the main timeline.

While this is still a side-scrolling shooter with all the action you’d expect from a 2D Metroid, the addition of a new enemy called EMMI marks a significant change in the way you’ll traverse the map.

The enemy is essentially a stalker robot chasing you relentlessly in certain areas. Get sucked into EMMI and you’ll be instantly killed and sent back to the nearest spawn.

If you’re excited about Metroid Dread, you might want to carefully consider which version of the game you’ll pick up. In addition to a standard edition, there is a special Metroid Dread Collector’s Edition, which is a must-have for any Metroid fan.

Pre-orders for the latest Metroid Collector’s Edition (Samus Returns) sold out quickly, so we recommend pre-ordering now to guarantee your copy.
