The “winter” window has been narrowed down
Several months ago, Nintendo teased a trio of Splatoon 3 amiibo (Octoling Blue, Inkling Yellow, and Smallfry) arriving “this holiday.” Well thanks to a new YouTube video, the release date has been narrowed down to November 11.
Roughly the first minute of the video is a recap of everything we covered here: including basic amiibo functionality. But in the remaining 20 seconds or so there’s a release date announcement, plus a brief look at what costumes the upcoming amiibo will grant players. Reprints of several old Splatoon amiibo (including Pearl and Marina) are coming around the same time, so keep an eye out for those as well.
Keep in mind that as of late, amiibo haven’t been as super rare as they have been in the past. While old school amiibo hunters are always ready for an instant-sell-out situation, stock has generally been plentiful: so hopefully that will be the case for these figures too.
Once these three are released in November, we’ll have the following announced amiibo remaining:
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Wave 11 (2022-2023):
- Sora (still needs full confirmation)
As always, you can check out when those were released here in our master amiibo list, which has been updated since 2014.
