Nintendo Download: Escape the Deadly Depths of Metroid Dread

Nintendo Download: Escape the Deadly Depths of Metroid Dread

Another stellar week for Nintendo fans brings the long-awaited Metroid Dread, Disco Elysium, Tetris Effect, Darksiders III, and lots more.

Return to tradition

How weird is it that Metroid is back, and in its classic form no less? Eschewing the 3D or first-person of more recent titles in the set, Dread takes things back to Metroid’s classic form for its latest big console launch.

Dread is a long time coming too. The game was all but canned years ago, only to make a shock return at this past E3. And here we are, now on the edge of it’s launch as what’s apparently Nintendo’s Holiday anchor.

Outside of that though, this week is a big week all around. The critical darling RPG Disco Elysium is also out, as is the latest hit puzzler in the Tetris series, the port of Darksiders III, RiMS Racing, and a very interesting looking demake of the already retro shooter Dusk.

Lots to like, and lots to get too, as Nintendo heads into Holiday 2021. Scroll down for the full listing.
