Just weeks ahead of its release, Nintendo has now offered fans an overview of the long-awaited Metroid Dread 2D side-scroller.

Featured above, the almost five-minute clip showcases everything from Samus’ new abilities in the game to the enemies she’ll encounter across a whole host of beautifully crafted levels, spotlighting the galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter using her Spider Magnet, Flash Shift, and self-targeting Storm Missiles while she traverses through magma chambers, underwater worlds, and ancient forests. There’s also a quick look at the special edition drop of the game as well as the amiibos accompanying its release at the end for the diehard Metroid fans.

Scheduled to release on October 8 for the Nintendo Switch, Metroid Dread will be the iconic franchise’s first title to feature original content for the past 19 years, breathing fresh air into Samus’ adventures after a collection of remakes and remasters. The sequel Metroid Prime 4 is also currently in the works over at Retro Studios, although details remain scarce for now.

Elsewhere in gaming, Knights of the Old Republic is being remade for the PlayStation 5.
