It looks like there will be more amiibo than just Samus and E.M.M.I. releasing alongside Metroid Dread on October 8th, as pre-orders have gone live for reprints of both the Dark Samus and the Ridley amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series. It appears that the Dark Samus reprint will be exclusive to Best Buy, while the Ridley reprint will be exclusive to GameStop. Both amiibo retail for $15.99 and can be pre-ordered now.



It’s not known at this time what the Dark Samus and Ridley amiibo do when tapped into Metroid Dread, but one can assume that they will function in some way with the game, given the timing of the amiibo reprints. Metroid Dread launches October 8th, 2021 alongside the Metroid Dread amiibo 2-pack, the Dark Samus and Ridley amiibo reprints, and the new OLED Nintendo Switch model.

You can pre-order your copy of Metroid Dread on Amazon today.
