To great excitement, Nintendo revealed its newest Metroid game during their E3 2021 Direct. Metroid Dread is being developed by MercuryStream, who you will remember from the excellent Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS, and the new game is launching on 8th October 2021.

Metroid Dread pre-orders are open now in North America and in the UK. You can pre-order the standard edition, but pre-orders for the Metroid Dread Special Edition bundle — which looks amazing — are also live.

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.

We are keeping an eye out for pre-order availability, and will update this guide as any new Metroid Dread pre-order pages appear.

Metroid Dread amiibo 2 Pack

Pre-order Samus and EMMI amiibo in the UK

To go alongside the game, Nintendo is releasing 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).
