Metroid Dread lauched alongside the game's official Samus & E.M.M.I Double Pack amiibo — which has unfortunately been delayed until the 5th of November in the UK and the rest of Europe. Players can also grab daily in-game rewards by using any of a total of six previously released Metroid series amiibo.
Let's take a look at exactly which amiibo are compatible with Metroid Dread and what effects they'll have when you tap them off that NFC reader.
All Metroid Dread Compatible amiibo and What They Do
Samus & E.M.M.I Double Pack amiibo (Metroid Dread)
The Metroid Dread Samus amiibo will net you one permanent extra energy tank.
The Metroid Dread E.M.M.I. amiibo bestows one permanent Missile+ Tank.
These are one-time-only deals that will only occur the first time you tap your new amiibo off your NFC reader.
Further to this, tapping Samus once-a-day will grant you a daily life energy refill, while E.M.M.I. grants you a daily missile ammo restock.

How To Use Your Metroid amiibo
In order to use any of the above amiibo to gain some sweet in-game bonuses, you'll first need to hit the "-" button on your Switch then go to the amiibo section of the in-game menu where you'll be prompted to tap them off the NFC reader on your Nintendo Switch.
The NFC reader is located on the right stick of your Joy-Con controllers, on the right stick of the Switch Lite and over the Nintendo Switch logo in the centre of the official Pro Controller.
