New Splatoon amiibo Ink-coming

It’s been almost a year since Splatoon has launched, and it has grown EXPONENTIALLY since then, but aside from patches and the new ‘Sheldon Picks’ range of weapons, there hasn’t been anything brand new since January. Well, the recently announced amiibo of the famed Squid Sisters may help! Yes, both Callie and Marie will be released in a physical form this July, the 8th to be precise. Judging by the announcement trailer, it seems you can see them perform different songs? This may seem pointless, but I’m hoping this allows for more songs to be playable during Splatfests! If you do plan on picking these up, I recommend getting the dual pack. In addition, there will be three more amiibo, and from the outside they are re-skins of the first set (which included Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Inkling Squid), although time will tell if they hold more than just that! Whilst in Europe, those three will be released individually, in North America you can get them in a pack of three, with the Squid being exclusive to that set for the time being. You can see them for yourselves below, taken from Nintendo UK’s trailer:

 

You can see the announcement trailer here, or watch the Squid Sister’s recent performance at the Chokaigi 2016 event in Japan! So will you be picking some up, or even all of them? I’m starved for money myself, so I’ll have to see!
