Confirmed during Treehouse Live: Not only will the existing Samus and Zero Suit Samus be compatible with the game but two new figures were revealed. A brand new Samus amiibo, featuring a more dynamic pose reminiscent of Metroid II’s original art and blue base, will come along with a Metroid amiibo. This one will have a squishier texture to the amorphous creature, representing another new stride for amiibo, and will be breaking out of its canister as a great callback to the game.

A special edition of the game was also revealed for Samus Returns. With a reversible cover and a 25 track series wide soundtrack called “Samus Archives,” it’s a great grab for fans who’ve been waiting for the bounty hunter’s revival. Look forward to details on availability for all of these and functionality in the near future.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
