Okay, so we didn't get the update to Metroid Prime 4 that we were expecting, but Nintendo announced the Metroid Dread. It’s the first new 2D Metroid game in nearly two decades and it launches on October 8 of this year with two new Metro Dread amiibo that you can pre-order today.
All the hype surrounding the latest additions to the amiibo line- meaning they're likely to sell early. But don’t worry, as you secure yours by pre-ordering them now in the US and UK from the links below.

One of the biggest scores Dread's focus is EMMI, the game's protagonist robot that chases Samus into certain areas of the game.

What does Metroid Dread amiibo do?
Nintendo also announced the amiibo functionality of Metroid Dread while Direct. Scanning the Samus amiibo in the game will give you an additional energy tank, and you can also scan the amiibo once daily to refill your energy bar.
As for E.M.M.I. amiibo, you get a missile plus tank, which upgrades your missile capacity by 10. And similar to the Samus amiibo, scanning the EMMI amiibo once a day will completely fill your missile.
Is There a Special Age of Metroid?
Nintendo also announced a special edition of Metroid Dread as part of the reveal, containing five high-quality art cards with basic art for each 2D Metroid game, and a 190-page artbook that covers all five entries in the Metroid 2D saga.
