Nintendo likes to tease
Metroid Dread was rumored to be a 2D side scrolling action adventure game hearkening back to the series’ roots, to be released on the DS. But after announcing it two years ago as a title in development, nary a word has been heard and people simply assumed the title was canceled. However, a screenshot from MP3 reveals some tantalizingly vague flavor text that may or may not hint at Dread’s status. With everyone all amped about the release of Prime 3, this might be a good time for Nintendo to unleash a surprise Metroid game to feed the fire once it’s died down a bit, and placate (to a very minor extent) the angry Nintendo fanboys that have yet to be swayed by their magical mushroom infused spin doctors.
