Nintendo released a new trailer for Metroid Dread, right alongside Metroid Dread Report Vol. 5, which details what abilities Samus will have in the upcoming game. It also teased another report and trailer are on the way.
“[The next report will shed] light on new mysteries revealed in an upcoming game trailer,” Nintendo description reads on YouTube. “Please look forward to it on August 27.”
The latest trailer shows Samus flying towards her next mission, learning she’s being sent as a backup solution for the last of the X parasites–the antagonist of the game. There is also a bit of a surprise in this video, giving us some voice acting. This isn’t typical, since the Metroid series usually relies on written text.
Samus is also got a new outfit, her Varia suit being replaced for a light blue one she’s be in for the who journey.
Nintendo revealed this new blue suit was actually the one Samus wore in Metroid Fustion. “In Metroid Dread, Samus’s suit appears to have changed quite a bit from her previous missions,” Nintendo writes. “This is the result of the organic suit from Metroid Fusion–which was greatly transformed following the attack by the X parasitic lifeform and the injection of the Metroid vaccine–gradually returning to its original, mechanical Power Suit form.”
