Metroid Dread is the new installment of a saga that has just turned 35 years old. It is one of the most anticipated releases in the remainder of the year for Nintendo Switch, it has been developed by the Spanish team MercurySteam and it will hit stores next October 8th. To celebrate that his arrival is closer every day, Nintendo has shared a new and enigmatic teaser trailer of the game, in which we can glimpse the figure of a Chozo, the mysterious species that originated everything that happened with the Metroid.
The Chozo were creatures with similar appearance to that of a bird that inhabited the planet Zebes at the time (later they did the same with others such as Tallon IV and Elysia). Despite knowing that they were born more than 1,500 years ago, everything that surrounds the species remains a true mystery. They are credited with raising Samus Aran herself, as well as the technology she uses in her suit thanks to the Mother Brain (an artificial intelligence) connection with the Galactic Federation. Its inclusion in the trailer that you can see below has aroused the interest of many players.
Metroid: 35 years of history
Nintendo’s long-running franchise debuted in 1986, date the original installment was released on NES. Several years passed (1994) until the conception of Super Metroid from SNES, one of the most acclaimed video games of all time. It has been a long time and now we are about to get to the controls of Metroid Dread, a new chapter in two dimensions developed by MercurySteam. During the long journey, we have seen the saga leap into three dimensions with Metroid Prime, of whose fourth installment we still know practically nothing, as well as several spin-offs such as Metroid: Other M or Federation Forces, among others.
