Rumor: It looks like there might be amiibo for Splatoon

Also, Greninja and Jigglypuff

According to Raru, a South African retailer, there might be an amiibo launch on the way for Splatoon. Listings for “Splatoon Boy” and “Splatoon Girl” were found on the site, in addition to Greninja and Jigglypuff amiibo. Could this be all or part of a possible amiibo Wave 5? We know for a fact that the latter two are coming as part of the Super Smash Bros. amiibo line, but the date is still unknown.

I didn’t think about it before today, but it makes perfect sense for Nintendo to ease people into a brand new risky IP with amiibo. I imagine the functionality could involve bringing over your own character for multiplayer to a friend’s house, too.

amiibo pre-order [] Thanks Jeff!
