Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Metroid Dread discussion

I've seen all of those. The ones that show how coherent the map and rooms are like the elevator going from Hanubia all the way down to the first room in Artaria through the multiple rooms aligned and the whole lava reactor being visible from all the rooms it should be... They are mindblowing. This level of deatil in map design, room design and background is almost unparalleled in a game of this kind. It's up there with Hollow Knight in that regarad.

By the way... after a lot of thinking, I think Metroid Fusion should be called Metroid Dread and viceversa, It would make a lot more sense and the names would actually honor the theme of both titles xD

Just finished it a few days ago. As far as 2D Metroid games are concerned I've played 1, and Super Metroid. The first one I could never get into and I really liked Super Metroid. Dread was fantastic from start to finish. It had the right amount of challenge. I don't think I'm going to give hard mode a try anytime soon, as the normal setting was more than enough for me. The final boss was a little on the easy side compared to some previous bosses. I ended up getting all the items except for one missile tank that I couldn't shinespark to.



I think that as the years go by people will look back at this game , compare it to Super and find Super better. Super has better content overall.

Damn, surprised you thought final boss wasn't as hard as some others. Died sooooo many times on final boss haha. I definitey thought final boss upped the challenge from the other really hard bosses. Anyway, after you've gone through the game once it gets a lot easier, so you should definitely try out hard mode. Not saying hard won't be challenging, but like replaying normal mode after I beat it for the first time was soooo much easier. Hard mode is a good challenge after you've beat the game on normal.

And yeah, I tried to 100% the game right after I beat it for the first time and I also got everything except that one tank that requires just insane use of the shinespark. It takes some ridiculous shinespark skill to get that one.



Yet more nifty little touches and attention to detail.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Nothing else important for me to add here, so here's SpongeBob and Patrick re-enacting an E.M.M.I. chase.

I managed to do all the shinespark/speed booster challenges with some taking me quite a few attempts. 

While they are challenging, I think you can manage with a little bit more dedication.



Now that Mercury Steam has proven themselves with Metroid, what other Nintendo IP should they try working on? ^^

Yeah, that'd be nice. ^^ What other genres should they branch out into for Nintendo? I don't know their full history so I'll need to be brought up to date.
