Product Description

On a remote alien planet, a mechanical menace awaits that will push even the galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter to her limit. Join Samus Aran on her deadliest 2D adventure yet in Metroid Dread on Nintendo Switch.

Upon investigating a mysterious transmission on Planet ZDR, Samus faces a mysterious foe that traps her in this dangerous world. The remote planet has been overrun by vicious alien lifeforms and murderous robots called E.M.M.I. Hunt or be hunted as you make your way through a labyrinth of enemies in Metroid Dread, Samus’ most intense side-scrolling adventure yet.

Samus Aran

A super-skilled bounty hunter who has single-handedly confronted and defeated multiple galactic threats. Samus was raised by the Chozo on planet Zebes after tragically losing her parents at the hands of the Space Pirates. She is said to be the strongest warrior in the galaxy.


The Extraplanetary Multiform Mobile Identifiers are large, highly agile research robots equipped with the ability to extract DNA. Originally dispatched by the Galactic Federation for research purposes to planet ZDR, these extremely deadly robots are now in relentless pursuit of Samus.

The Chozo

Known to be an intelligent species capable of developing amazing technologies, such as those used by Samus. Once a powerful force intent on achieving galactic harmony, the few remaining Chozo mostly try to avoid attention. Relics of their civilization are found throughout the galaxy.

The long road ahead

To complete Samus’ mission in Metroid Dread, navigate your way through the depths of a sprawling planet full of unique environments, perilous danger and mysterious secrets. Use new and familiar abilities to traverse these labyrinths, consult the map to find your way and dispatch hostile enemies in your path using powerful weapons.

As you freely explore the planet, you’ll encounter locked doors, ledges out of reach and areas too hazardous for Samus to safely venture into. By acquiring power-ups and upgrades, you’ll not only overcome these obstacles, but also discover new paths and shortcuts through the environment.

Between revisiting regions to explore previously-inaccessible areas and fighting the many larger monsters ZDR is home to, getting off the planet won’t be easy. Especially since the missing E.M.M.I. are far more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined…

Samus is more agile and capable than ever

Samus always has her trusty Arm Cannon to hand but as she explores planet ZDR, she’ll discover additional weapons and abilities that’ll help her uncover the truth about her mission in Metroid Dread.

Samus’ primary attack, launching a powerful beam of energy to both vaporise foes and open doors. It can be upgraded to add more power, as well as wider and special shot types.

Powerful explosives that causes great damage to enemies, but can also open up hidden paths. Ammo is limited, but collecting Missile Tanks will expand the quantity Samus can carry.

Morph Ball

Samus can curl her Power Suit up into a ball in Metroid Dread, allowing her to fit through small gaps and tunnels. She can also drop bombs which allow her to access new areas.

The threat of the E.M.M.I.

Tireless, relentless, merciless. Corrupted by unknown forces and no longer controlled by the Federation, the E.M.M.I. robots that stalk the depths of planet ZDR in Metroid Dread have only one goal: eliminate Samus Aran.

Lurking within designated E.M.M.I. Zones around the planet, these deadly machines are always on the hunt. Explore areas where E.M.M.I. are active carefully to avoid detection – if you’re spotted, the chances of survival are slim so get ready to run!

Deep within each E.M.M.I. Zone lies the means to temporarily enable the Omega Cannon – the only weapon capable of destroying an E.M.M.I. robot. Keep a steady hand and a steadier nerve while using it though or you’ll never live to fight another day…
