Well, the expected update for Metroid Prime 4 wasn’t available, but Nintendo announced the Metroid Dread. This is the first new 2D Metroid game in almost 20 years and will be available on October 8th this year with two new Metro Dreadamiibos that you can book now.
All the hype surrounding the recent additions to the amiibo lineup probably means it’s sold out in advance. But don’t worry. Pre-order now in the US and UK from the links below to ensure your safety.

One of the biggest focal points Dread revealed was EMMI, the game’s robot adversary, chasing Samus in certain areas of the game.
The Metroid Dread amiibo set is a dual pack with Samus wearing a dread suit and the robot EMMI.
As with most Nintendo amiibo, we expect it to be difficult to find these online after launch. The easiest way to ensure that you get them is to pre-order.
Some retailers have released pages, but pre-orders are not valid at the time of writing. Your best bet is to check the links below, bookmark the page you want to pre-order and keep checking.

What does Metroid Dread amiibo do?
Nintendo also revealed the features of the Metroid Dread amiibo during Direct. Scanning Samus amiibo and putting it into the game will give you an additional energy tank. You can also scan amiibo once a day to replenish the energy bar.
For EMMI amiibo, there is a missile plus tank, which increases the missile capacity by 10. Also, like Samus amiibo, scanning EMMI amiibo once a day will completely replenish the missile.
Is there a Metroid Dread Special Edition?
Nintendo also announced a special edition of Metroid Dread as part of its release. It includes five high-quality art cards with key art for each 2D Metroid game, and a 190-page artbook that covers all five entries for the Metroid 2D Saga.
We’ll update this page as we receive new information about pre-orders, so don’t forget to come back and check. Remember that The Legend of Zelda Games & Watch was also announced at Nintendo’s E3 conference. As with these amiibos, it’s a good idea to get a pre-order for Zelda’s Games & Watches so you don’t miss them.
