Metroid Dread Demo Available on Nintendo eShop

Out of the blue, Nintendo has announced a free demo version of Metroid Dread – and it’s out now. A free demo is available right now on Nintendo eShop, or you can queue it up to download from the Nintendo website.

The ad post and associated images have a Halloween theme, and with a name like Dread, it certainly fits in with the spooky season. Nintendo hasn’t shared any details on the limitations of the demo, but it’s a good option anyway if you’re interested.

Metroid Dread scored 8 out of 10 in critics reviews. While the gameplay has been improved and new features have been added, Dread is closely related to the formula of its predecessors.
