I swear this must have started as a 3ds game or something. Those graphics are so rough.

But I'm not a fan of 2d metroidvania games, and I'm sure people who are probably aren't the type to care too much about it looking so dated. Hope it gives something fans of the series can love.

Looks good esp it is not black and white.... I dunno why but 2d black and white games on HD looks so good lately...

I think that's being a bit harsh.

Here is Samus Returns on 3DS:

And here is Metroid Dread:

It's a 60fps game on the Switch, some sacrifices have to be made, but it looks nothing like a 3DS game.



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

^This, so say that again, Zippy, and another Metroid bites down onto your cranium.

I don't know about that.

I am one of those who stated I long moved on to the 3D Prime version, but this one definitely looked better than anything I seen on 3DS that it make me actually want to give a 2D metroid a go again since the SNES days lol.



 

 

Yeah awesome trailer. Between this, warioware and a few indies I want on the go, I'm tempted to get a switch deluxe or whatever it's called lol

I guess you had a custom 3DS that could handle 1080p/60fps graphics made just for you. Because this looks nothing like a 3DS game.

Well that's the worst take I read online this week on anything. It looks like a Switch game.

I said looks like it started as a 3ds game, not that it looked like a 3ds game now. Gees. It's graphically one of the worst looking games made by Nintendo on the switch.

Clearly I wasn't saying it was running at 240p. *face palm*

Almost every game Nintendo has made for the Switch is visually far more polished than this. This looks like it has a very low budget and it shows. Anyone that thinks this is a good-looking game must be a huge metroid fan. This isn't up to Nintendo's usual quality at all.

But like I said in my first post, I'm sure lots of people will still love the game, graphics aren't everything. I know there is a passionate fanbase behind metroid which explains everyones defensive reaction.
