Metroid 5 – Metroid Dread has been announced for the Nintendo Switch and the best part is that it will be available to play in 2021.

“Face off against unrelenting E.M.M.I. robots. Once DNA-extracting research machines, the imposing E.M.M.I. are now hunting Samus down. Tensions are high as you evade these E.M.M.I. to avoid a cruel death while finding a way to take them down.
“Find out what turned these robotic wonders into the scourge of ZDR and escape with your life.
