Earlier this month we reported that Best Buy would be restocking the Dark Samus amiibo on October 8th 2021, the same day Metroid Dread releases in North America. Now, video game retailer Gamestop have shared that the Ridley amiibo will also be restocked on the same day. This seems unlikely to be a coincidence, and its great to see that these amiibo will be available once again. It may also imply that the upcoming Metroid title may include some functionality with the new title. At the time of writing, there has been no update from Nintendo on their CPSIA Certificates of Compliance page, which lists all of the manufacturing dates for amiibo released so far.
We will continue to watch closely to see if any of this is officially confirmed by Nintendo.
