Pearl and Marina's hip-hop getups are your Splatoon 2 amiibo rewards


Also, what ARE their surnames?

We are just a short week away from the best amiibo ever released. No, not Butt-plug Bowser, but Splatoon 2's awesome hosts; Marina and Pearl, collectively known as Off the Hook.

Courtesy of the official Japanese twitter, we now know the extra goodies you'll bag in Splatoon 2 when you plonk the gals on your Nintendo Switch. The new outfits are the hip-hop costumes the cutesy rap-rock duo wore in the advertisements for the recently released DLC, Octo Expansion.

In related news, Pearl and Marina's full names, or at least their original Japanese full names, have been revealed, as they are scrawled on the packaging of the soon to be released Octotune soundtrack album. The Queen of the World's birth certificate reads "Hime Houzuki" while her record-spinning pal is the sweetly named "Marine Iida." Nothing like a bit of lore to get the weekend started.

The Pearl & Marina amiibo are released on July 13, while the Japanese-exclusive Octotune soundtrack drops the beat July 18.
