Leaked Metroid Dread footage shared on the 35th anniversary

Nintendo officially shared the video Via TwitterHowever, only Japanese accounts. This involves an update of the Japanese Metroid Dread website, which covers the history and story of the mainline Metroid games.

The caption also states that Samus feels despair in the footage, but the exact reason for this and how it affects her remains a mystery.

for UK, Europe, and US accounts, Nintendo just posted a clip of the title screen of the first Metroid game, so you’ll probably only get the dread footage today.


Gameplay is not included, but Nintendo’s short Metroid Dread teaser includes a vague teaser for the game plot.

Today marks the 35th anniversary of the Metroid series, and Nintendo appears to have as many plans as Donkey Kong’s 40th anniversary.

At least that’s what it looked like at first. It’s not a big deal, but it seems that Nintendo accidentally uploaded a new teaser video for Metroid Dread. This is the next major entry in the series, which will be released later this year.

This video has since been removed from Twitter, but can still be viewed as a private video on YouTube. It doesn’t include new gameplay, but it seems to provide a vague hint to Dread’s story.

Curiously, Samus doesn’t wear the blue and white armor that he sported in all the footage and promotional materials so far. Instead, it more closely resembles her traditional orange armor. Our best guess is that these scenes are from the beginning of the game and she will get blue armor someday.

It’s hard to know what’s going on because of the lack of dialogue, but Dread seems to focus on Chozo, a race of aliens raised by Samus.

Samus encounters several architectures depicting Nagazo before experiencing some visions of Nagazo’s historical scenes, including some sort of civil war.

Also, properly check the Chozo characters that will appear in Dread later. This is the first time Nagazo has appeared in the body in all series. This same character was first seen on Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS remake of Metroid 2), but only on unlockable flashbacks.

Although not fully confirmed, these flashbacks seemed to imply that this Chozo character was responsible for the collapse of their race’s civilization. This is why some fans believe they act as the main adversary of horror.

It’s unclear at this point if Nintendo will make further plans or announcements today, but given the company’s track record, that seems unlikely (especially in Japan, because another day is over).

Nintendo is rumored to have big plans to celebrate the DK franchise, including a brand new game that may be released this year as well. However, Nintendo didn’t even recognize the milestone, even though it was Mario’s 40th anniversary.

It’s nice to see a proper celebration from Nintendo, but Metroid fans can at least be relieved to know that the future of the series looks pretty bright. Metroid Prime 4, with the exception of Dread, is still under development, but hasn’t had any major updates since Retro Studios resumed the project in 2019.

Metroid Dread will be released for Nintendo Switch on October 8th.
