To great excitement, Nintendo revealed its newest Metroid game during their E3 Direct back in June 2021. Metroid Dread was developed by MercuryStream, who you will remember from the excellent Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS, and the new game launched on 8th October 2021. We called it "possibly the best Metroid game ever made" in our review. It's good.
In this guide we've rounded up the various editions of the game available to buy in North America and the UK. In addition to this, there is also a two-pack of amiibo up for grabs, featuring Samus and one of her dreaded robot foes, the E.M.M.I.

To go alongside the game, Nintendo released a pair of dapper-looking amiibo which we think look fantastic — equally the match of previous amiibo in the series.
Tapping Samus to your right Joy-Con will restore your health once-a-day and bestow an extra energy tank, while the EMMI amiibo will upgrade your maximum missile capacity by 10 and also replenish your missiles (again, once-a-day).
