This Samus costume will have new functions for exploration and battle, but the classic abilities will also return.
As we already told you about the Metroid Dread map, the same Nintendo report also talked about the changes in the samus costume, including the different appearance of this installment, and the skills it will allow us to perform.
The suit is the same one that Samus wore in Metroid Fusion.According to the company report, the suit is the same that Samus used in Metroid Fusion. This time, however, the outfit returns to its ‘original form’, mixing an organic and mechanical appearance. Although they did not mention much, the changes were also implemented, so that Samus could better fight against EMMI, the creature we saw in the Metroid Dread announcement trailer.
Regarding the skills, and as expected, we will have the classic Power Beam, and the load of this attack, which makes it much more powerful. The missiles will also be back, as well as other powers that will increase the agility of Samus, allowing you to explore the map more easily. The new functions remained a secret, although we already saw some in the footage of the past E3 2021, like the new counterattack that the protagonist will have.
Metroid Dread has been rumored in the community for over 15 years, and we’ll finally be able to enjoy it next October 8th, same day that the Nintendo Switch OLED will be launched. This game will be the sequel by Metroid Fusion, and the story will end by Samus that started on the NES Metroid in 1986.
