The Zero Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series are also compatible with Metroid: Samus Returns.
However, some are not pleased with the amount of content that is being locked behind using the new amiibo styled after the Metroid creatures. This included receiving a Fusion Suit and a Fusion difficulty mode that can be unlocked by using the upcoming Metroid amiibo.More news: Abbas suffering from exhaustion, say doctors after hospital visit
Nintendo confirmed to Eurogamer that all of this content is available only if you have the amiibos, and fans aren't too happy that they will need to shell out $13 for the hard mode. So it seems, at least for the foreseeable future, that Fusion mode in Samus Returns will be restricted to only those who possess the Metroid amiibo.
Samus Returns is a re-imagining of the 1991 Game Boy game Metroid II: Return of the Samus, and is expected to launch on September 15. These links leave Siliconera. You won't be able to play Hard Mode of Samus Returns.More news: Railways likely to not provide blankets in AC coaches
This week we were informed that EB Game is no longer taking preorders for them, and the amiibo have disappeared from the website. The amiibo also tells you the locations of nearby Metroids, so it might be worth checking out regardless of whether you want this suit or not. After completing the game, you can use this amiibo to unlock Music in the Gallery, which lets you listen to BGMs from Metroid: Samus Returns.
Of all the extra content, the only part I'd be concerned about unlocking is the additional Fusion difficulty level and Metroid map feature. After completing the game, you can tap this amiibo to unlock Metroid II Art in the Gallery.More news: Kim Kardashian's Company Sued For $100M Over 'Lit' Selfie Case Endorsement
