Unless you’ve lived under a rock in the shape of a giant morph ball for the past few months, you know that Metroid Dread was launched for the Nintendo Switch today. It’s totally great, and you should definitely go play with it.

But before that, I wanted to check out this special artwork from the Bethesda team.The studio congratulates Nintendo on launching the new Metroid Social mediaShare a cracking art piece featuring Doomguy Slayer, who will replace Samus as a box art star.

The following is a comparison of this work and the official cover of Nintendo.

Of course, there’s more reason to associate Doomguy with Nintendo’s own big gun after it was released as the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Mii Fighter Costume earlier this week. The match between DOOM’s protagonist and Metroid’s Samus will soon become a real possibility-what a crazy world!
