These mysterious organisms have the power to absorb the energy of any life-form with which they come in contact, and this ability has put them at the center of many a galactic conflict. Nefarious Space Pirates want to use them as a weapon—one powerful enough to conquer the entire galaxy. To combat this threat, the Galactic Federation dispatched a lone bounty hunter, Samus Aran, to eliminate the Metroid™ menace once and for all.
The Metroid amiibo figure is available exclusively in the Metroid series 2-pack set.
Release Date: September 15, 2017
Samus Aran, an intergalactic bounty hunter, has fought her way across a variety of planets in the Metroid™ series. Orphaned at an early age, she was taken in and raised by the alien race known as the Chozo. The Power Suit she wears is a product of their technology. Her combat skills combined with her athleticism and Arm Cannon have seen her through countless missions. This amiibo figure shows Samus Aran as she appears in the Metroid™: Samus Returns game and crouched in her classic pose from the Metroid II-Return of Samus™ game's box art.
The Samus Aran amiibo figure is available exclusively in the Metroid series 2-pack set.
