Two more amiibo can now be pre-ordered on Amazon. The retailer’s official product page for Ryu can be found here and Famicom R.O.B. is here. Both are available for $10.39 if you have an Amazon Prime subscription.

GameStop has opened pre-orders for four amiibo. Ryu, Famicom R.O.B., Kapp’n, and Rover are all now up for reservations. Each one can be pre-ordered here.

The Jigglypuff amiibo is no longer exclusive to Target in the United States. As such, other retailers are now starting to take orders for the figure. GameStop’s listing is now live here.

Last year, Nintendo released three amiibo for Splatoon. We currently have the Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and, Inkling Squid figures. Could more be on the way?

NWPlayer123 has built a reputation for leaking new content for Splatoon ahead of official reveals. In the past, we’ve found out about levels and weapons among other elements before they were announced. NWPlayer123 now seems to have unearthed evidence of new amiibo figures.


“AmiiboIdolA” and “AmiiboIdolB” have both been found within Splatoon’s files. These two were likely included in the game’s most recent update. Given the names, would one think that they’re referencing the Squid Sisters.

We’ll let you know if we hear anything else about this rumor.

Thanks to Mattrio for the tip.
