It looks like someone has dug into the code for Metroid Dread and extracted the model for Zero Suit Samus. User @Finalizer14 on Twitter posted a zoomed-in look at the model and it's quite detailed, to say the least:


Update 1.0.3 has been released for Metroid: Dread. Patch notes:

  • Fixed an issue where Samus' damage detection would disappear under certain conditions.
  • We made the decision to fix this issue because there is a possibility that it may occur unintentionally, and if it does, it will result in a play experience that is far different from the way Metroid Dread was originally intended to be experienced.


Metroid: Dread has won the category of "Best Action Adventure Games" at this year's Video Game Awards:
