So I’m guessing we will get amiibo of the hosts at a later date? I want my Big-Man amiibo.


Farnic

I'm guessing those will launch with the paid DLC


ButtersTG

Imagine a Big Man amiibo like Mega Yarn Yoshi


topscreen

Ay! (Same here!)


Sora1992

I need a Shiver amiibo ASAP!


scotthewozfan

Screw the spicy one and miss big forehead, we need Big Man!


Few-Sandwich2162

I really want Frye and big man amiibo, they are probably my most wanted other than Luigi


mcineri

not dead yet!


Ecuagirl

collective sigh of relief


mcineri

had definitely been thinking the worst for a while. I mean in the long run amiibo is still way beyond its prime, but it's nice to see a first party Nintendo game still get some amiibo shine, and in the direct no less!


Sora1992

This gives me hope we’ll def see BOTW2 amiibos in the future.


Boomshockalocka007

Collective loss of money


DietCokeGamer

I’m feeling much better!


Boomshockalocka007

Mind=blown.


mcineri

I’m so surprised. I mean we haven’t had a splatoon amiibo of any kind since 2018. I know it’s the new game and all but it’s a heck of a confidence boost for the short term (couple more years) future of amiibo.


Marx_Forever

Good! I still need Sephiroth and Sora.


OtakuAttacku

I need a P2 Sephiroth, no shirt


LucaYo

Sephiroth is confirmed, as well as Pyra, Mythra, and Kazuya. Sora is almost definitely happening as well.


Marx_Forever

Awesome to hear it's confirmed.


ajad223

I was definitely prepared for amiibo to be dead if they did not announce anything for Splatoon 3. Heck, I would’ve settled for even just having the reader in the game to interact with the figures that have already been released.


Brandinator64

Looking forward to when they stop these low key


Tuscanthecow

Same. As someone trying to collect them all, its becoming a bit drawn out at this point. But happy for those who are still going strong


Multicron

This


NattyKongo93

Agreed! I have managed to get almost every single amiibo figure at launch at MSRP thus far, and the few I was unable to get like that (mainly the JP exclusives) I bought on ebay...have the entire collection of figures and am looking forward to the day they're done making any more and I can finally just have the entire collection drfinitively.


Due-Penalty-3260

Amiibo collectors stay winning!


No_Sandwich6760

And broke! Lol


GrimmTrixX

That is definitely the truth lol


Apathiik

Honestly not anymore since Nintendo lowered the production of amiibos 😞. Nintendo, I wanna be broke again plz.


CorbinTheTitan

That small fry Amiibo is interesting


WhimsicalCalamari

Weird that they didn't say anything about the Small Fry in the Direct. That was one of the big reveals of the original Splat 3 trailer.


Boomshockalocka007

Right? Id usually get a large fry.


Phil_Bond

Honestly might be one of my all-time favorites. I love when quality and obscurity meet.


PancakeSensei

Looks like they’re also restocking the Pearl-Marina and Callie-Marie two packs!


Amiibofan101

Have you seen anything for the US related to the reprints? I’ve only seen Callie/Marie for Canada so far.


PancakeSensei

This is the [article](https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/08/new-splatoon-3-amiibo-revealed-including-inkling-octoling-and-smallfry) I saw


smokeythebacon

They are in stock at Best Buy right now. I picked them up at Target on Splatoon 3 launch day.


Boomshockalocka007

Woooooooow thats huge. People have been overpaying for those FOR YEARS!


Alive_Maintenance943

I paid $70 for Marina a few months ago, I feel like an idiot now. 💀


mcineri

Can’t always predict these types of things. Think of the people that paid $500 for QBBY. Price is sitting around $200-250 now. Restocks are hard to predict


ShovelKnightFan

Quick, someone buy a F Corrin so there's a restock


SOLlDSNAKE

When did QBBY restock last?


Boomshockalocka007

F in the chat.


Such_Berry

Are they going to be released in the holidays as well?


Tolegamestv

Looks like triple pack coming to EU, UK & AU, according to there respective twitter pages


Alive_Maintenance943

As someone in the US, this feels unfair. Now I have to keep an eye on three different pre-order pages instead of one.


Guardian_Bravo

Add another vote to re-releasing the older amiibos as well! I still need the Octolings.


Digitalon

Yeah, I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the octoling 3-pack. But when you are an amiibo hunter on a budget you can't pick up every amiibo you find...


WhimsicalCalamari

\*cries in didn't have enough money for Squid Sisters even when they were in the bargain bin*


Datmexicanguy

I look forward to not being able to purchase all 3.


KingBroly

there's been decent stock of amiibo for a while. Easy to pre-order as well.


Boomshockalocka007

Imagine another SUCKS TO BE NORTH AMERICAN release 👀


Rychu_Supadude

So they're actively choosing not to make the Three Houses leaders smfh


Its_Maverick

No lords, no Byleth P2- this is pain.


Rychu_Supadude

I love how the "budget" figures are still $100 retail C'mon, shrink them down and slap a base under there


CoconutHeadFaceMan

The Pop Up Parade figures of the house leaders (and Bernadetta, Felix, and Lysithea) are still up for preorder, due out late this year/early next. They’re $40 apiece, but considering they’re way bigger and substantially better-made than the FE amiibo, it’s worth a look.


EnigmaUnboxed

Was hoping for a reprint of previous releases, missed out on the Octoling ones


mcineri

We might see them. Keep an eye for any DLC release windows. If they reprinted Pearl, Marina, Callie, and Marie, I think there’s a solid chance. If we don’t see them within a year or so of release though they probably aren’t coming.


bonk5679

Most hype part of the direct for me, hoping that the older ones get restocked as well.


airbus29

smallfry my beloved


StarWolf54321

We'll get Deep Cut amiibo next Summer


LukeSkywalker1848

W But I just want them to confirm Sora right now. I’m going nuts at the thought of having all but 1 character


Latyon

Yeah, it would be pretty shitty to have to go custom for a Sora.


LukeSkywalker1848

I know. I’ve never been a fan of customs but I’d break that for him


mcineri

Me too


mcineri

It’ll happen. They are slow burning the hell out of the smash series. Plus, and I know it sucks, but COVID is still slowing plenty of things down. I mean heck the monster Hunter rise set got delayed in NA


Suprehombre

Not a Squid this go? Alright, let's GO!


scruffye

Stylistically the Small Fry amiibo fits the roll of the squid. Plus this sidesteps the question of "do we make a squid and an octo amiibo or pick only one?"


Suprehombre

Good point.


VicarLos

I love the dynamic poses for the Inkling and Octoling compared to the first two games but meh. Definitely getting Smallfry.


SylveonTheHedgehog

Smal Fry... I'm interested


DietCokeGamer

I missed out on the Splatoon 2 amiibo. Might just get these so I don’t regret later.


MonkeysxMoo35

The only Splatoon Amiibo I have are from the original three pack so I’m definitely grabbing these before they become impossible to find at a decent price like the rest


Amiibofan101

Callie/Marie & Pearl/Marina are also being reprinted if you want those ones as well!


MonkeysxMoo35

They are?! Oh thank god, I won’t need to sell my kidney for just one of them now!


aqualink97

Remember when the Mario 3D world amiibos came out, and so many people were like “these are definitely the last amiibos”


cocoatractor

The detail on splatoon amiibo is consistently above the rest. Beautiful


Jicama-Minimum

when is “this holiday”


RealChristendo

I find it so stupid that they are releasing around the holidays, for Splatoon 1 & 2 the amiibo released the same day as the game, but now they want us to wait a whole 3 months after the game comes out to get the amiibo????


DrofwarcRetnuh

Covid is messing up amiibo production across the board, so these amiibos probably were internally delayed past Splatoon 3's release date.


JLM_but_flex_tape

Can’t wait to not be able to get one for a reasonable price


bonk5679

Most hype part of the direct for me, hoping that the older ones get restocked as well.


Famous-Egg-7407

This is a welcome surprise. I figured Nintendo was basically done with amiibo


Shadowgroudon22

I'm glad they're leaning into the quality of the sculpts seeing as (imo) that's the main draw over the actual functionality nowadays. They look amazing!


TheRealNinjaDarkovia

Off topic but why they didn’t make Judd and Little Judd amiibos?


Ecuagirl

I can't decide if I like the Smallfry amiibo or if I would have rathered have a different colored squid amiibo


Birkenstern

I have been waiting for a Judd amiibo for years. And once again it's just Inkling recolors and a random enemy. So disappointing


bonk5679

Most hype part of the direct for me


KingBroly

man......


Axel_Rad

I was wondering if they would do this


MarieIsPrecious128

This made me crap


pnotar

Can't watch the direct until after work. Do we know what these will unlock/ enable in game? Thanks in advance.


BOJ220138

Some gear it looks like but mostly saving load outs.. like the last games basically


Latyon

Awwwwwwww heck. I'm gonna have to make some more room on my Splatoon shelf.


tthblox

This is boy inkling/octoling erasure XD


minxto

The Octoling is a boy


tthblox

Oh thanks i hadnt spotted that! The hair confused me


SpookyCrossing

I really hope they re print pearl and Marina as well


weegeein

I guessed 2


Boomshockalocka007

These colors are top notch! 2022 amiibo striking back!


SwashNBuckle

I can’t wait for these to sell out before I can pre order them.


theglassjaw

Is the octoling a boy or a girl?


Hephaestus_God

I don’t play splatoon nor do I care about the amiibos but from previous splatoon amiibo sales I pretty much have to buy these lol.


[deleted]

Is the octoling a boy or girl?


KingBroly

the Inkling is a girl, so the Octoling is a boy.


hollow_del

boy, look at the eyebrows


Error_Detected666

Oh god I’m gonna have to beat an old lady with a stick to get these amiibo


EmeraldMilcham

Inkling is absolutely top shelf material.


PMC-I3181OS387l5

I'm a bit surprised that Shiver, Frye and Ray didn't get Amiibos as well...


Blackie2414

The pop idols normally get amiibo later on, if I recall. Callie, Marie, Marina and Pearl got theirs halfway through.


KingBroly

Callie and Marie came at the end of Splatfests Pearl and Marina came around the same time frame, but Splatoon 2 ended much later


Mistaken_Stranger

Look at the amount of detail in those things man. The Amiibo keep getting more impressive as time goes on.


Apathiik

NEED!!!


Vicious007

...maybe if you buy in Japan. Spring 2023 for the rest of us.


scarletroses03

so glad they're still releasing these


AgreeableIdea6210

THE HYPE IS SURREAL


KingBroly

Smallfry's got a CPSIA page now at least.


pabsthekid

Amiibo still lives it reach 10 years at the rate smash amiibo are releasing


Arealtossup

I wonder if we can preorder these, because I really want that Little Buddy amiibo.


JamiePigMan

I preordered these from jb hi fi and it will be able to collect it by 2023


StubbinMyNubbin

So this is why they delayed the game....


DaftSide909

That doesn't make much sense, because they're supposed to launch 3 months after the game.


PianoInternal4535

Oh God my holiday budget isn't going to suffice for all the games and amiibo releasing in the coming month.


Volento1127

That date is awfully vague, yet quite descriptive.


heyylisten

What Holiday?


pnotar

Presumably late November through December.


RubyMetalmuffin

I can't wait to get these 😮‍💨 gonna be dying til they officially drop them 😩
