Metroid Dread: How long does it take to beat a 100% item?

Metroid games are always promoting speedy completion rates, with multiple endings and other rewards based on time, number of items collected, and in some cases number. We need some testing to uncover all the secrets of Metroid Dread, but for our review we report two in-game logs.

  • Metroid Dread took 11 hours to defeat with 82% completion
  • Metroid Dread was 100% complete and took 13 hours to defeat

Completion rates include many optional missile tanks, E-tanks to extend the life gauge, and other expansions. However, there are some caveats. First, the completion time does not include the time spent on the pause screen. According to the Switch parental control app Played Metroid Dread for 23 hours, Achieve 100% completion. Why is it important? This is because the in-game map is on the pause screen and you can spend a lot of time solving the puzzles.

Another caveat: The in-game completion screen does not include the time spent before the game over screen. Therefore, if you have fought several boss battles, none of those attempts will be recorded in the completion time until you defeat the boss and save it again. However, there are some caveats to these warnings. As a reviewer, I also paused reviewing and taking notes. However, I don’t think it’s been added to the count for more than an hour because it puts the system to sleep and shuts it down effectively. In most cases, parental control clocks.

Hopefully you can get a sense of the length of the game from these two statistics, but how does it fit in with the previous Metroid? According to our sister site How Long to Beat, the 100% complete statistics are:

  • Metroid: Zero Mission-4.5 hours to win, 7.5 hours to 100%
  • Metroid Fusion-5 hours to beat, 8 hours to 100%
  • Metroid-6 hours to beat, 7.5 hours to 100%
  • Super Metroid-7.5 hours to beat, 9 hours to 100%
  • Metroid Prime-14 hours to beat, 18 hours to 100%
  • Metroid: Samus returns to beat for 11 hours, 100% for 15 hours

So how does Dread measure? It seems that it can be measured in longer Metroid games such as Metroid Prime and Metroid: Samus Returns. If you want to know more before diving into the cold regions of the universe, check out the Metroid Dread review.
