Kind of gutted it's not Prime 4 but it's something

I really want Prime as I'm sick of side scrollers from Nintendo.

When he first mentioned Prime 4 I got excited... but I will still take this as a win because it is a new Metroid game.

I'm not a fan of the Mario or Yoshi sidescrollers, but I prefer 2D Metroid to 3D in most cases (im a fan of Prime 2). I would say metroid is a solid 50/50 between people who prefer 2D vs 3D.

For old fans of Metroid, this is amazing news. Bigger than Metroid Prime 4. We all thought the mainline Metroid series was dead. Metroid Dread itself was confirmed to have had been in development before silently dying.

Looks like they're taking the SA-X Pursuer aspect of Metroid Fusion and making it a significant part of Metroid Dread.

Fusion was my favourite game in the series, just had a terrific atmosphere and horror elements, I'm so happy we're getting a squeal to it.

Since we already know MP4 is coming out, this was a great surprise.Best reveal of the show personally, since I didn’t expect it.

Wario on the other hand….🤔

Even for a 2D side scroller it seemed unimpressive. Cuphead, Guacamelee, and Xbox’s new pixelated game Replaced look way better than this. But of course it’ll get a free pass because it’s Nintendo we’re talking here.

I’m absolutely adore 2D side scrolling Metroid games!! Super Metroid is “the” greatest game ever created.

diepdiep714d ago

At least they acknowledged Prime 4 is still being developed. And I’m really happy that we’re finally getting a sequel after “Fusion”. I remembered it was originally supposed to come out on the Nintendo DS.

I cant wait for this!

Day 1 for sure!

Nice touch using the Dread title. I remember it being referenced in one of the Prime games but it never came to be until now. Day 1 for me. Glad the rumor was true.
