We’ve already posted an unboxing video for one of the Splatoon amiibo dioramas, which was the Squid Sisters stage. The video below takes a closer look at the second one: Kelp Dome.

When the new Splatoon amiibo made it to store shelves this past week in Japan, they were accompanied by an amiibo diorama for the Squid Sisters. Check out an unboxing video below, along with another look at Callie and Marie.

Update: Here’s Yacht Club’s official video:

Strangely it’s about half as long, so we’ve kept our original recording in place.

Inti Creates and Yacht Club Games are teaming up for the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack in the west. But the two sides are working together on a second collaboration that was unveiled at BitSummit today.

During a Nindies panel at the event, a trailer was shown for amiibo support in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. The video, posted below, highlights how players can challenge Shovel Knight to a fight while controlling Copen or Gunvolt.

The Shovel Knight sprite was designed by well-known pixel artist Masaya Suzuki from Inti Creates. Suzuki has worked on classic series including Breath of Fire and Mega Man Zero.

It took until release day, but the new Splatoon amiibo are finally up on Amazon. This includes the Squid Sisters and new colors for the new colors of Boy/Girl Inkling as well as the orange squid. Each one can be found here.
