New Splatoon Amiibo Announced, To Be Released in June
Nintendo announced two new amiibo today, which are based off the J-pop duo from their popular third-person-shooter/competitive painting game, Splatoon.
These ultra-detailed amiibo of the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie, will be available for purchase on July 8th, according to the official Nintendo Twitter account, and may be purchased together for $24.99 or individually for $12.99 each. Using them in game will unlock clips of their funky-fresh dance moves, all set to both existing Squid Sisters songs and some brand new, never-before-heard ones.
Nintendo also announced two new, re-colored variants of the existing Boy Inkling and Girl Inkling, to be released at the same time. They will also be available for $12.99 each, or bundled together with an Orange Squid amiibo for $34.99. This set will give amiibo collectors and Splatoon fans another opportunity to get some in-game bonuses and gear, especially as some of the amiibo in question (cough...Green Squid...cough) are notoriously difficult to find.
