Nintendo shocked us all when it announced Metroid Dread at E3 2021. This will be the first original Metroid 2D game to come out in 19 years, so it’s going to be a long time coming. Along with the regular version of the game, Nintendo also announced a Special Edition, which comes with lots of extras, as well as an amiibo set featuring Samus and an EMMI robot.
The problem is that, in typical Nintendo fashion, the Special edition and amiibo sets are nearly impossible to find, with retailers selling out on the first day. Since then, some retailers have replenished stock of each item but sold out within minutes, making it very frustrating to repurchase these items.
While we can’t guarantee you’ll get either of these products, we can direct you to certain retailers that have recently stocked them. We’ll also provide any other tips we can come up with that might make your search a little easier.
This is the place to buy Metroid Dread: Special Edition and amiibo.
Before going into the place to find Metroid Dread Premium Edition, let’s first cover what comes with it. It retails for $90 and includes:
- Real copy of the game
- Steel book case
- Art card
- 190 page art book
Here are the various retailers that have done it recently:
The Metroid Dread amiibo retails for $35 and comes with Samus and EMMI metrics. The Samus figure gives you an in-game health pack, while the EMMI robot gives you an extra rocket pack. Normally with amiibo you can only use them once every 12 hours or so, but that can be broken if you change the system clock.
Here are the retailers that have made amiibo sets recently:
