Nintendo has issued a statement on social media to say that due to “unforeseen shipping delays”, the Metroid Dread two-pack amiibo will be instead releasing on November 5th. The Big N goes on to apologize for the inconvenience and also reiterates that the delay does not affect the actual Nintendo Switch game itself, just the amiibo. Metroid Dread will still release on Nintendo Switch on October 8th.
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.
