Metroid Dread amiibo Delayed in UK and Europe Due to “Unexpected Delivery Delays”
Nintendo announced a short deadline for the Terror Metroid amiibo 2 pack, figures are now arriving in November.
The company said the reason was “unforeseen shipping delays” in their announcement on Twitter. While initially slated to launch alongside the game, the miniatures will now arrive on November 5. Comprised of bounty hunt hero Samus Aran and robotic enemy EMMI, the minifigures allow players to unlock a permanent energy tank and a missile tank +.
Fortunately, the amiibo delay will not affect Terror Metroid himself. The game brings bounty hunter Samus Aran back on a whole new adventure on the mysterious planet of ZDR. During her mission, she will be hunted down by the EMMI who seem to have the sole mission of eliminating her, programmed by her former saviors.
Logistics issues in the UK and Europe have caused some headaches for physical versions lately. Last month, the disk version of Ultimate sonic colors was delayed by Sega due to similar issues, although the digital release went as planned.
Terror Metroid will land exclusively on Nintendo Switch on October 8. Which is just in time for the Nintendo Switch OLED launch (knock on wood, barring other logistical issues).
Due to unforeseen delivery delays, the Metroid Dread amiibo 2-pack is now expected to launch in the UK and Europe on November 5th. Metroid Dread will still launch on Nintendo Switch on October 8 as originally planned. We apologize for the delay.
