Well, please listen. When writing about the ongoing relationship between Oscar winner Brie Larson and Nintendo, we know that many don’t like it. understood. We are all a little lactose intolerant. However, we are not responsible for clicking on another Brie Larson heading, just as we are only responsible for finishing the entire Haagen-Dazs tub. You brought this to yourself, you are a fool who loves cheese!

Larson has teamed up with Nintendo many times, so he had to create the entire tag just for Captain Mar-Vell’s actress. She starred in Switch ads, played Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and even had a fangirl moment in Doug. Bowser, for everyone. Well, she appeared in another ad. This time it’s Metroid Dread, but the actress is curled up in the trailer between the shoots, which is much more modest than last time.

Like many women in the game, Larson says Samus Aran, who was specifically revealed to be a woman at the end of the first Metroid game, inspired her as a young girl.

“At the end of this big, robotic and powerful character was this blonde ponytail woman,” she said in an Instagram ad. She also says Samus is her “reliable character” for Smash Bros. “She is an incredible leader. She just … protects the universe!” Larson laughs. “I can relate to it.”

Of course, Samus Aran doesn’t have the best track record of girl power in the game — she’s certainly well sexualized over the years — but with Metroid Dread, a powerful and independent woman. There is a new modern view of what it means to be a game.

Also, especially, and perhaps according to Nintendo’s style guidelines, Larson says “Nintendo Switch Oh-Ell-Ee-Dee.” It is not “Oh-Led”. So you go.

So what do you think of Bree’s latest Nintendo partnership? Do you think she really enjoys Metroid Dread, or do you think she enjoys the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update like everyone else? Please let us know in the comments.
