Metroid Dread Japan

Nintendo Japan has released a new commercial for Metroid Dread and the song in it seems to be getting a lot of attention on social media. Don't be fooled, this isn't some fan-made clip with popular music over the top of it, it's actually an official advertisement for the upcoming Switch release.

Twitter user @ScrewyClassic noted how the Japanese commercial for the game had a song in it "that goes way too hard" - otherwise known as a "certified banger" in the music industry. It's the kind of track we imagine would fit right in at the start of anime. Have a listen yourself:

Unfortunately, the same user has had no luck tracking the song down. While there was also some speculation it might be in the game, the recent Nintendo Direct appears to have confirmed this music will not be featured:

It seems the song has been commissioned as promotional material. Although there's no other way to listen to it, it's still pretty cool and great to see Nintendo going all out with the marketing of this game in the lead-up to its release.

Can you imagine playing a Metroid game with a song like this in it? Are you hyped for this upcoming Switch release now that you've heard this song? Leave a comment down below.
