Exactly as anticipated last week, A new trailer for Metroid Dread, which shows what appears to be the threat that Samus will face in this new adventure. Additionally, in order to help all fans understand the video better, a new Gameplay Report has also been released, explaining some interesting things.
As already partially anticipated last week, Samus will be sent to planet ZDR to investigate but she will soon be attacked by a mysterious assailant who will also cause her to lose all the skills she has acquired. The developers themselves call this skill amnesia phenomenon, which will lead our heroine to learn all over again and add interesting new attacks.
During E3 the same director had talked about the history of this game, pointing out how the relationship between the bounty hunter and the alien creatures will change, without, however, anticipating much. What we see in the video appears to be a Chozo, an incredibly intelligent and technologically advanced species, whose members however seem to be rare to find.
This population she had already appeared in previous titles but only through their technologies or through statues and never with an actual member of that civilization. This therefore appears to be the first time that all fans will see a Chozo in action, one of the rare warriors reported within the Galactic Federation archives.

The video then shows a variety of new and interesting skills, such as the Crusade Bomb, the Supercinèsi, the Radius Hook and much more. These new moves available to Samus will be very important to help her navigate the planet, which seems to be full of deadly dangers.
In fact, in the final scenes of the trailer a gigantic monster appears which appears to be a Kraid, an enemy already appeared on Metroid, his remake Metroid: Zero Mission And Super Metroid. Why does such a creature appear on such a distant planet? We just have to wait for the next 8 October 2021, the release date expected exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
