Metroid Dread: new details
Through the document called “Delivery 05 of the Metroid Dread report: The Powers of Samus Aran”, Nintendo has shared new details about the gameplay of the title. Among them there is a novelty that stands out especially: Samus will be able to fire his cannon in multiple directions without the need to position himself in a static way, something that we are not used to seeing in other two-dimensional installments of the saga. It also emphasizes the Enganche Ray, which will once again have a leading role to reach places that are difficult to access.
The responsible study also wanted to highlight freedom of movement by referring to Metroid: Samus Returns, the delivery that arrived on Nintendo 3DS. Unlike it, this time we will not only be able to fire the cannon; also missiles or carry out counterattacks while we are clinging to a ledge. MercurySteam has put all the meat on the grill when it comes to offering a high rhythm when executing actions, according to his words: “Our goal is for players to maintain speed and momentum at all times, so that the passage of a style from game to game is as fluid as possible ”, they comment.
Metroid Dread will be available next October 8 on Nintendo Switch
