Smallfry looks great
We took the entire Splatoon 3 amiibo line for a spin at launch, but there’s still three missing! A trio is due out this “holiday season,” and while we don’t have a full picture of what they’ll unlock, we can see them up close thanks to a new YouTube video from Gaming Boulevard.
Taken at the Heroes Comic Con/Made in Asia convention in Brussels, Belgium, this past weekend; and were on display thanks to the Made in Asia portion of the convention (which features manga, anime, video games, YouTubers and cosplay).
As a reminder, these are the three that are still due in the future:
- Octoling (Blue)
- Inkling (Yellow)
The general quality of amiibo has skyrocketed over the years (especially compared to the launch lineup), and you can really see the difference with these close-up shots. Smallfry (the companion in Splatoon 3 that also serves a mechanical purpose in-game) is probably going to be a fan favorite figure, as that pose looks even funnier with the real thing on display.
If I had to guess, the idol trio (Shiver, Frye, and Big Man, who all comprise “Deep Cut”) could come out sometime in 2023 as Splatoon 3 amiibo: potentially coinciding with some sort of Splatoon 3 update/expansion. All Splatoon idols have been represented so far in amiibo form.
As always, you can check out when those were released here in our master amiibo list, which has been updated since 2014.
