  • Flash Shift – This all-new Aeion Ability lets Samus travel a set distance – forward or backward, while on the ground or in the air – in an instant.
  • Pulse Radar –This handy Aeion Ability allows Samus to scan her immediate surroundings and pinpoint breakable blocks.
  • Grapple Beam – A rope-like beam that can connect to specific points, the Grapple Beam allows Samus to swing across gaps or manipulate parts of her environment, such as pulling an object.
  • Ice Missile – By using this cool upgrade, Samus can freeze enemies to easily destroy them or even use some of them as platforms!
  • Storm Missile – With the Storm Missiles, Samus can lock on to and fire multiple small missiles in succession.
  • Cross Bomb – This powerful bomb explodes in four directions.
  • Speed Booster – This ability allows her to run at great speed, dealing damage to enemies and smashing through certain walls.
  • Shinespark – True Metroid experts know all about this electrifying move, which can be activated to have Samus fly in a set direction while in her Speed Booster state.
  • Screw Attack – A classic move that has been in every single 2D Metroid game, the Screw Attack finds Samus damaging enemies and shattering certain obstacles during a spin jump.

Be prepared to battle, Metroid Dread is set to be coming your way on October 8th!
