Behold: the first new 2D 'Metroid' game in nearly 20 years

Nintendo officially announced its new 2D 'Metroid' game, 'Metroid: Dread.'

It’s official: Samus Aran is back. In an announcement at E3, Nintendo officially took the wraps off of Metroid: Dread, a side-scrolling 2D installment of the Metroid series and the first new Metroid game in about 19 years.

There aren’t a ton of details on the game, but we did get a decent amount of gameplay footage, and rather than spoil the fun, it’s best if you just watch yourself...
