Metroid Dread has become one of the Switch’s unsung heroes this year, being the first original return to 2D Metroid in 19 years, and now you’re still on the fence about getting it, a new demo has been released for the Nintendo Eshop so you can try it out for free.
This was revealed today with a new Halloween-themed post on Nintendo’s official website, complete with an adorable Samus Jack o Lantern
This Halloween, suit up as Samus Aran and see what goes bump in the night on planet ZDR with a fun-sized bite of the Metroid Dread game. Download the free demo now from Nintendo.com or Nintendo eShop on your device!
Experience the eerie isolation of a remote alien world, face a relentless mechanical menace, and power your way through a section of what Shacknews calls “a sci-fi blast of brilliance that fans and newcomers alike will more than likely enjoy.”
If you need more Metroid Dread in your treat bucket, you can pick up the full game today.
To all of our local Southeast Asian gamers, if you’re worried that the demo won’t be available on the barren local e-shops, you should be able to make a foreign account, either American, European, Japanese, etc for free, and then download the demon without needing to put in any kind of payment.
While exact worldwide sales are still unconfirmed, Metroid Dread has already become the best-selling game in the Metroid series. Just shows the power of the Switch, and the fact that Nintendo has more heavily marketed the game compared to previous entries in the series.
Metroid Dread and its demo are available for Nintendo Switch.
