So excited to play it! Can't wait!

I really like the atmosphere this game gives off, and the gameplay looks so fluid.

Ill get this because its for free, but I'd not pay full price, its just a 2d metroid, and with the power of the switch I still see aliasing there, disappointing. The 3ds metroid was good, but nothing special, got repetitive quick. I just wanted a metroid prime 4 or a remaster of the trilogy. You'd think with the huge sales of the switch, Nintendo would take the opportunity to pump out these games, because there's huge sales potential. Where's prime4? Where's pikmin 4? Where's mario kart 9? almost 4 and half years since launch and still no mario kart? The same with a 2d mario game, the wiiU had one on launch day and it was my all time favourite mario 2d, the wii also had one, and so did the 3ds. And where smash bros? No smash bros the entire generation?

The switch is the most successful Nintendo console ever, they should take it seriously. It feels like Nintendo is just relaxing this generation. Mario tennis was disappointing compared to the previous ones, mario golf was just horrible. A whole generation without a new Donkey kong? A whole generation without Star fox?And what happened to wave race or F zero? What happend to pilot wings? 

What is nintendo doing? Arent they supposed to make games?

It's just a 2D metroid....(few lines later).... where's the 2D mario game?

Are you fine with what you're saying? 

Edit: "where smash bros. ?", i didn't see that you were trolling cauz you lost me in the second line at first. My bad bro.



I can't wait for October!! ^^



There were many times over the last decade when it felt like Metroid was either dead and buried or would better off be, so seeing it being brought back with such apparent quality, actually being marketed, and looking like it might finally become a breakout hit after decades as a relatively niche seller is a bit surreal. In an awesome way though.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Now if only Nintendo would do this with their other dormant franchises. Imagine Star Fox, but without gimmicks, or a new F-Zero that actually exists.



Looking better with the new trailer. Feels like this engine could be used for the upcoming 3D Metroid on the Switch 2.



This looks like a dream come true. Literally, it's everything I could have hoped for an hypothetical Metroid 5... maybe even more. It looks INSANELY good. Like... GOTY material good. Sakamoto and Mercury Steam have really crafted something Metroid fans will absolutely enjoy. It's... it's pure hype. That's what this trailer is. That's what Metroid Dread is.

I'd like to see how that would look. :)
