The galaxy will no longer be at peace this friday, as the first, entirely new 2D Metroid in 19 years comes out.
I'm fairly excited for this and to blow off the cover of dust that has settled on the top of my Switch. While I have never finished a 2D Metroid before (I've played Super Metroid several times, but the very unguiding nature of it has always made me stop at some point), I've always enjoyed certain aspects of the series a lot. I did play through Metroid Prime some years ago and had a blast with it, so I'm definitely going to jump at MP4 whenever that happens, but I've also grown to appreciate metroidvanias a lot more in recent years, so I'm more than ready to jump right in with Dread too.
It *would* have been nice, if Nintedo currently had some sort of console where they could put all their 2D Metroid games out on, but I suppose I can settle for the story synopsis that this game offers...and eh, maybe I would've overdosed on Metroid before Dread, if I could've played all of them easily on Switch. Or maybe I would be even more hyped, who knows!
