After announcing the new Splatoon amiibo this past weekend, Nintendo has now sent out official images of the upcoming figures. We have photos of Callie and Marie plus the alternative colors for the Squid Boy and Girl plus Inkling Squid. Find the images below.

Nintendo has revealed a new set of amiibo planned for Splatoon. On July 8, fans can pick up figures based on the Squid Sisters (Callie and Marie) as well as new colors for Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Inkling Squid.

Here’s a trailer:

Note that the Squid Sisters won’t be sold individually in North America. Instead, they’ll be distributed in a double pack. Likewise, the Orange Squid amiibo is only coming via a 3-pack.

A small note by the way: Splatoon Koshien 2017 (tournament) has been confirmed, but details haven’t been shared just yet. We only know that the finals will be held in February at Game Party Japan 2017.

Thanks to the bunch of you for sending this in.

The Squid Sisters, the hosts and performers of Splatoon, performed another live concert at ongoing Japanese gaming event NicoNico Choukaigi. You can watch the performance below, which actually includes a few new songs. Stay fresh!

Miitomo has been updated with some new collaboration content from Splatoon. For a look at the various items, check out the video below.

In North America and Europe, Splatoon’s 13th Splatfest has now drawn to a close. So who came out on top: Team SpongeBob or Team Patrick?

SpongeBob’s side scored a win in terms of popularity with 57 percent of the vote. However, because those who were on Team Patrick had more wins (55 percent), they took home the overall victory. The final score was 373 points for Patrick and 327 points for SpongeBob.



In Japan, Splatoon’s 13th Splatfest just wrapped up. The theme involved a 7-Eleven promotion, in which mayonnaise tuna and red salmon onigiri battled head-to-head. We now have the results.

The battle was close, but mayonnaise tuna was victorious. It was less popular than red salmon, which had 52 percent of the vote, but had the edge in wins (51 percent). The final score was 354 to 346.


Splatoon players in North America and Europe can now begin participating in the 13th Splatfest. The topic is based on Nickelodeon’s popular cartoon, as Team SpongeBob and Team Patrick battle it out. This competition will last until April 24 at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET.
