Nintendo just added a new Dread mode and Rookie mode to Metroid Dread last month, along with news that Boss Rush mode will be added to the game in the April update.That renew Now live in Metroid Dread, it brings not only one boss rush mode to the game, but three modes to the game.
The second free update to Metroid Dread, this new April update adds Boss rush, Survival Rush, and Dread Rush. Plus, it adds a practice mode that lets you practice fighting many of the bosses found in Samus’ latest journey.
Here’s a breakdown of each mode:
Boss Rush unlocks after actually completing Metroid Dread, and it will ask you to take on each boss one by one. At the end of each battle, Samus’ missiles will be restored, but any damage you take will carry over to the next boss fight. However, each battle increases the player’s maximum number of missiles, energy tanks, and power bombs, depending on the location of the boss fight in the main game.
To unlock Survival Rush, you must complete Boss Rush. In Survival Rush, your task is to defeat as many bosses as possible before the timer runs out. Each boss you defeat adds more time to your timer, and if you are able to defeat the boss without taking damage, you will also gain extra time. However, in this mode, missiles and health between bosses will not be restored.
In order to unlock Dread Rush, you must complete Dread Mode, which was added to the game in the February update. Fear Mode is for the most hardcore players, as it makes a single hit result in instant death. In Dread Rush, you’ll take on 12 boss challenges without interruption – one after the other. Just like in Fear Mode, if you take a hit in Fear Dash, you’ll die instantly. However, the missiles fully recover after each boss fight.
Here’s what Nintendo has to say about this new mode: “If you want to get some training, you can practice boss fights in this mode. Beat each boss as fast as you can. Then, you can go back and check your previous time, See how you progress.”
