Metroid Dread is a game that was released in June 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS. It is set after Metroid Fusion. A sinister group of executives within the Federation have been creating a top secret project, an army rivalling that of the Space Pirates for their own nefarious desires. A few years later the same group slowly gained influence with the Galactic Federation spreading paranoia and fear of Samus going rogue.
After the destruction of Bottle ship and the BSL Labs, various valuable life forms and illegal Bioweapons were lost forcing the ring leaders into action.

Now Samus must fight her former allies unable to trust anyone as she is wanted dead or alive...
