Nintendo Shares Tons Of New Metroid Dread Details In Its Second Official Report

Here comes interesting details related to one of the most anticipated games in the Nintendo Switch catalog. We are talking about Metroid Dread.

In the text that we leave you below, from Nintendo, they offer us content related to the second report of the game, which focuses on the E.M.M.I and more. Remember that this morning we received its gameplay.

Here it is:

In this installment, we will focus on the threat that looms over Samus Aran: the E.M.M.I In their day, they were sent by the Galactic Federation on a reconnaissance mission, but these robots so large and agile, as well as deadly, are now dedicated to hunting down Samus relentlessly.

Read on to find out more about these mighty machines and the changes they bring to the world of Metroid …

What are E.M.M.I?

An Interplanetary Multiform Mobile Explorer (or E.M.M.I) is an agile robot designed to reconnoiter the terrain and extract DNA from the samples it collects. The Galactic Federation sent several of them to the unknown planet ZDR to investigate the X parasite, a life form capable of taking on the appearance of other organisms. However, contact with the E.M.M.I was lost when they arrived at ZDR.


When Samus crosses paths with the E.M.M.I on her mission to clarify what is happening in ZDR, she notices that the robots’ behavior and purpose appear to have been altered.

E.M.M.I is a Galactic Federation robot, so in theory, they shouldn’t be Samus’s enemies. However, the E.M.M.I our heroine encounters identify her as a target and pursue her without giving her a break. We believe that the fact that E.M.M.I lack feelings, combined with their incredible power, will make players shiver with fear. ”

What happens if Samus is caught?

E.M.M.Is move freely within their zones. Depending on what their sensors detect, they are programmed to perform up to three different actions, differentiated by the color of the light that shines on their heads.

  • Patrol mode (blue light)

Go through the area without having detected Samus.


  • Surveillance mode (yellow light)

Investigate a suspicious vibration.

  • Pursuit mode (red light)

Chase Samus at high speed after spotting her.

If the E.M.M.Is catch Samus, it is very likely that she will not survive. Be very careful and avoid being detected while exploring the E.M.M.I zones.

If the E.M.M.I claw at you, you have a tiny chance of saving your skin. Execute a counterattack at the precise moment the E.M.M.I open to attack you. Of course, the interval is so short that it is practically impossible to execute the kickback successfully. In short, better safe than sorry: don’t let them catch you! ”

Don’t worry, there is always a checkpoint nearby, which will be of great help if things go wrong and Samus is captured.

E.M.M.I zone doors

E.M.M.I are held in their assigned E.M.M.I areas. These areas are separated from the rest of the world by doors that only Samus can pass through.

The doors will lock when the E.M.M.I visually detect Samus and start chasing her. To open them again, you will have to make the E.M.M.I lose track of you.

“The areas where you have to deal with E.M.M.Is are limited. What a stress if you had to deal with this stress continuously! ”

“When you enter an E.M.M.I zone, the layout of the terrain, and the location of the gates will be recorded on the map, helping you decide your path. Don’t forget to stay calm and check the map when you enter one of these areas. ”

New Skill: Spectral Camouflage

Spectral camouflage is one of Samus’s new Aeion abilities: it is an optical camouflage that makes her invisible. As long as this ability is activated, Samus will be able to move without causing the slightest noise. The optical sensors of the E.M.M.I will not detect it either.

Samus can activate this ability by consuming a special type of energy called Aeion. However, if Samus walks or takes any other action while using this ability, the Aeion energy will be spent more quickly. If it is completely depleted, Samus will still be able to use the spectral cloak, but it will cost her own energy. Manage these resources very carefully.

~ Development team transmission ~

“Thanks to the spectral cloak, you will not only prevent the E.M.M.I from discovering Samus, but you will also be able to pass through doors that close when a human is detected.”

“This ability is useful against all sorts of enemies, not just E.M.M.I, so you may want to save it for specific moments if you are low on energy.”

Are E.M.M.Is invincible?

E.M.M.I’s protective armor is made from the toughest materials in the universe and is capable of repelling Samus’ basic attacks.

However, by drawing power from the central units (the computers that manage each E.M.M.I zone), Samus’ cannon will temporarily boost, becoming the Omega Cannon, allowing her to fire the Omega Burst and Omega Blast. E.M.M.Is are defenseless against both attacks.

Omega Burst

When Samus has the Omega Cannon activated, press and holds the L button to aim, and without releasing it, press the Y button to fire the Omega Burst, a powerful rapid-fire attack. Hit the E.M.M.I head repeatedly to overheat the protective shield. When you destroy it, it will expose the core, which is the weak point of the E.M.M.I.

Hold down the R button while aiming the Omega Cannon to charge a shot. When fully charged, press the Y button for a deadly omega blast. Hit the exposed core of E.M.M.I to kill it. As soon as you defeat the E.M.M.I, the Omega Cannon will revert to Samus’s regular Cannon.

Samus cannot move while preparing the omega discharge. You must overcome your fears as the deadly E.M.M.I approaches and load the weapon, then unload all its energy and finish off the enemy. You will notice how the tension builds within you, but if you manage to execute the attack successfully, you will feel incredible satisfaction. ”

How many E.M.M.Is are there?

Several E.M.M.Is were shown in the presentation trailer, including two different colored models and one that was broken.

However, on the game’s cover, the shadows of seven E.M.M.Is appear behind Samus. It seems there are more robots than we thought!

~ Development team transmission ~

“Each E.M.M.I has different skills and you will surely wonder which ones in particular.E.M.M.Is still harbors many mysteries… but we will save them for another time. ”

In the next installment …

In the next Metroid Dread report, we’ll talk about seven keywords that define “Metroid.” It will be available shortly!
