About Metroid Dread


Metroid Dread Phantom Cloak Cube
Metroid Dread takes place directly after Metroid Fusion and is the fifth mainline Metroid game in the series. The gameplay is everything we've come to know and love about the Metroid series, including suit power-ups, challenging bosses, and environments that give off a feeling of profound isolation.

Play as Samus as she travels to the planet ZDR after the Galatic Federation recieves a mysterious signal. There she discovers the terrifying E.M.M.I. Once research machines created to extract DNA, these machines have gone rogue and are now hunting Samus down. Avoid the dangerous creatures and machines while trying to uncover the secrets that lie on ZDR!
