If you’ve yet to purchase and play Metroid Dread — which has received outstanding reviews so far — then you’re in for a surprise treat: Nintendo has just released a free-to-play demo of the new game in celebration of Halloween so you can try it out for yourself before you decide whether to buy the full version.

“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,” says Nintendo. “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.’”

For fans of the franchise, you can now download the free demo for Metroid Dread over on Nintendo’s website. The full game is also available for $60 USD over on the company’s eShop.

Elsewhere in gaming, Among Us is introducing a new Shapeshifter in its latest update.
