Nice find. Shame the amiibo aren’t up yet.

Thanks. Don’t usually got for these but I’ve gone for this one. 
Game looked beautiful in the trailer and got me hooked.

Nabbed! First Special Edition I’ve bought in almost a decade!

Worth it for Metroid 5! Gimme that art book! :D

Site is up with info on what the amiibo do:

Quote

Scan the Samus amiibo for an extra energy tank to increase your health by 100. Tap it again once per day to receive health.

The E.M.M.I. amiibo grants a Missile+ tank to increase Samus’ missile capacity by 10. Tap it again once per day to replenish some missiles.

So this is kind of awkward. Last year I did a Metroid Prime 3 LP and I covered the "Dread" scan in question and went into detail on the history of Metroid Dread.

 

Following yesterday I felt I had to follow it up with this...

Fusion is my personal fave (of the ones I've played).

I've been skimming through the eShop sales, and Nintendo.co.uk in general, and see they've put up Metroid Dread Report Vol. 1: A closer look at the reveal trailer

Quote

Welcome to the Metroid Dread Report! This series of news articles will introduce the newest information on Metroid Dread for Nintendo Switch and the world of the Metroid series, along with behind-the-scenes glimpses from the game’s development team.

In this inaugural edition, we’ll be going into more detail on certain elements shown in the announcement trailer. Plus, there'll be a few special transmissions from the game’s creators on how intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran’s latest adventure took form.

Pretty sure that's Samus. You're thinking of this.

Hopefully they don't lock the hardest difficulty behind the amiibo this time though given this is Nintendo and what they did with Skyward Sword recently I don't have much faith that they won't just repeat what they did before.

They've already explained what the amiibo does. Samus gives a health container and can be scanned once a day to replenish health. EMMI gives a missile container and can be scanned once a day to replenish ammo.

It seems all Amazon sites had the same. Saw posts on Reddit about France and Germany Amazon was sold out within a few hours too. And these are already going up on eBay for like £100.

The amiibo will likely be up on the My Nintendo Store within the next few days, it should be easy enough to pre-order from there, I'd have thought.

I saw that the figures were up for pre-order on Amazon but didn't bother, as I try not to support that company, whenever possible.

Nice to see that other places have the collector's edition up for sale now though, as that has sold on on the My Nintendo Store.

Good luck finding it on the Nintendo UK store page when it does appear though!

So dumb that they removed the specific Amiibo section when they redesigned the site.

I don't know what there was before but there is a whole amiibo section:

Plus the search bar at the top does show amiibi

@BowserBasher @Dcubed @S.C.G not sure if you were waiting for the Nintendo store specifically, but figured I'd tag you just I'm case you're cool with ShopTo and can get there in time :smile:
