Splatoon has a few mini-games, most of which are unlocked via amiibo. There are only four included at the moment… but could another one be on the way?
In Splatoon’s final map, Ancho-V Games, players have noticed that a poster can be seen showing a non-existent mini-game. Since most mini-games are unlocked with amiibo, some believe this is further evidence that more figures are on the way. There have been rumors surrounding Squid Sisters amiibo, though nothing has been confirmed at this time.

Producer hints at possible new content for Splatoon

The finals for Splatoon Koshien 2016 were held in Japan a few hours ago. As the tournament came to an end, producer Hisashi Nogami came on stage and delivered a short speech.
Nogami started out by talking about how Splatoon debuted for the first time on stage nearly one year ago. He also mentioned that the team owes the progress and success thanks to folks like the ones gathered there, the ones who unfortunately were unable to participate there, and everyone watching the stream at home for their constant support and encouragement.
Nogami moved on by again stating that Splatoon came as far as it has is thanks to players like the ones he’s looking out at right now and has been thinking about ways he can express his appreciation. While Nintendo did say that updates would wrap up at the end of this month, he noted: “I know we announced that the content updates were going to end in January, but it’s possible we might be able to do something more in the future. Just please give us some time. We hope you’ll continue to enjoy Splatoon and the Squid Research Lab!”
You can get a look at Nogami’s speech below. Even though it’s in Japanese, it’s worth a watch since you can see how emotional he gets, and it really comes across how thankful he is.

Rumor: New amiibo references spotted within Splatoon’s files, possibly Squid Sisters
Posted on 8 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Wii U | 20 Comments
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.
Eh, screw it. Squid Sisters amiibo, coming soon to a retailer near you pic.twitter.com/yzE8dsKSLB

“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.

Splatoon – Japanese Splatfest #10 results
For Splatoon’s tenth Japanese Splatfest, players were asked if they would prefer a perfect body or a perfect mind. That competition has now come to a close, and the results are in.
Team Perfect Body managed to take home the win thanks to a slight edge in wins (53 percent versus 47 percent). Although Team Perfect Mind was more popular (56 percent compared to the other side’s 44 percent), it wasn’t enough. The final score was 362 to 338.
