Nintendo of Europe has announced that the Metroid Dread launch has been sullied by the amiibo delay. The Metroid Dread amiibo two-pack that was going to launch on October 8 has now been delayed and will no longer be available for sale as expected on that day.
No reason has been provided for the delay, though the current troubles with supply chains are suspected.
Instead, the amiibo two-pack for Metroid Dread will be launching across Europe on November 5th after the release of Metroid Dread. Making the announcement on Twitter, Nintendo of Europe apologized for the delay of the companion amiibos.
Metroid Dread Samus and E.M.M.I will be coming to Europe one month later instead.
Due to unforeseen shipping delays, the Metroid Dread amiibo 2-pack is now scheduled to launch across the UK and Europe on November 5th. Metroid Dread will still launch for Nintendo Switch on October 8th as originally scheduled. We apologise for the delay.
