We're just over three weeks away from the launch of Metroid Dread and Nintendo's keeping the hype train rolling with a brand new commercial.
You can check it out for yourself above; there's gameplay footage as you'd expect, a voiceover that tempts you into a purchase (not that we need any convincing), and even a quick spotlight for the new Nintendo Switch OLED which launches on the same day.
Nintendo's marketing campaign for the title is certainly gathering speed, which will no doubt please fans of the series who have been hoping to see it return with a bang. A five-minute overview trailer was released for the game at the end of last week, and fans have even spotted some eye-catching ads at train stations in Tokyo.
Are you planning on buying Metroid Dread when it launches on 8th October? Can you even wait that long? Get hyped in the comments below.
Is this one safe to watch? I've been keeping away from all the trailers since Trailer 2 gave away slightly too much for me
I wish it was October 8th already, I want game & amiibos right now! lol
Guys I think there's a new metroid game coming out.
@stinky_t this one shows a little bit of new footage. Wouldn’t watch it if you’re really trying your best not spoiling yourself.
I will never accept the word "drop" In place of releases
A full Nintendo Direct seems less and less likely for the rest of this year ...
@Friendly thanks for the warning! I'm just gonna have to watch them all after I finish the game then! That's normal right...
@Zeldawakening what does that even mean? There will never be another direct? Get a hold of yourself man.
Under a month to go! I can't wait. I intend to delete my YouTube app when it releases, I'm not gonna have Prosafiagaming or the likes ruin the final boss for me.
Very good trailer. Snappy, exciting, cool. Well done, Nintendo corporation.
@DomGC It's the VoiceOver and mixing of audio. the voices don't match the energy of the trailer and there's some weird side chaining/ducking happening. It's like they made the trailer with music and someone overdubbed a VoiceOver
Eh, I was convinced since the direct and treehouse so I'll just wait skip these to save myself from any spoilers
Lol no spoilers guys.
Nice trailer tho. Also nice combination with the oled.
@stinky_t Same here and I'm super normal
I skip the add and came directly to the comments section, good thing I did it, I fear that by watching some of the past reports I spoil the game for me, not gonna look into any other footage till I have my own copy. Too bad I won't be getting my hands on the special edition 🙁
They really need to bring back those live action commercials like in the 90s, those were the best. I hope Japan had a better commercial.
@stinky_t That's what my brother is doing. He's going in completely blind. He didn't even watch the Nintendo Direct.
I think the voice over should have been a woman but as long as the game sells, the the commercial did its job.

Man, the environments look so good as do the bosses. Just a few weeks away now.
All I can say is day 1 for both Metroid and oled. Need to get another switch for the house so I guess I’ll have to suffer with the new one since my 5 year old pretty much claimed my launch switch over the summer.
I don't recommend watching this commercial. I did and regret it. It has boss spoilers.
Didn’t think it was that great of a commercial. If I wasn’t a Metroid fan it doesn’t do much.
Nintendo is promoting the game pretty well. Hopefully that's a sign of confidence that Dread is amazing.
@Radpal You act like Mercury Steam is the LJN of this gen, either that or you are allergic to good game dev.
Give me this game now
@Specter_of-the_OLED to be honest, I wasn't totally on board with Samus Returns, so I was initially sceptical of them making Dread as well. But it looks like all my issues with the last game have been addressed (mainly the muddy graphics that also made it hard to tell which weapon was required to break a certain block, the overall structure of Metroid 2 and the over reliance on the melee counter).
It looks like that Kraid hits the BIG time!
