When Nintendo releases Metroid Fear for Nintendo Change later on this year, the 2D side-scrolling-adventure will likewise get an unique amiibo release including Samus Aran and the killer robotic referred to as EMMI.

Nintendo revealed the brand-new Metroid Fear amiibo Tuesday throughout its Nintendo Direct E3 2021 discussion, however didn’t state much about what it will do. Now that the Metroid Fear amiibo set is offered for pre-order, we have a much better sense of what amiibo collectors will get for their purchase.

From GameStop’s description of the Metroid Fear amiibo:

A brand-new Samus amiibo figure including her fit from the Metroid Fear video game and an E.M.M.I. amiibo figure are offered in a 2-pack set. Scan the Samus amiibo for an additional energy tank to increase your health by 100, in addition the Samus amiibo can be tapped once again to get health as soon as each day. The E.M.M.I. amiibo grants Samus a Rocket+ tank, increasing her rocket capability by 10, in addition the E.M.M.I. amiibo can be tapped once again to renew some rockets as soon as each day.

In Metroid video games past, gamers needed to hunt for their very first energy tank, checking out with a precarious quantity of health. However thanks to Nintendo’s collectible figures, Metroid Fear gamers have an immediate upper hand. Which ironically removes some of the dread from Fear.

Nintendo is offering a similar easing of gameplay with its new Zelda and Loftwing amiibo, which ships alongside The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for Nintendo Switch in July. That fancy figurine enables a new type of fast travel for Link.

The Samus and EMMI amiibo two-pack costs $29.99 and ships Oct. 8, the same day Metroid Fear arrives for Nintendo Change.
