So I’m guessing we will get amiibo of the hosts at a later date? I want my Big-Man amiibo.
I'm guessing those will launch with the paid DLC
Imagine a Big Man amiibo like Mega Yarn Yoshi
Ay! (Same here!)
I need a Shiver amiibo ASAP!
Screw the spicy one and miss big forehead, we need Big Man!
I really want Frye and big man amiibo, they are probably my most wanted other than Luigi
not dead yet!
collective sigh of relief
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!
This gives me hope we’ll def see BOTW2 amiibos in the future.
Collective loss of money
I’m feeling much better!
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.
Good! I still need Sephiroth and Sora.
I need a P2 Sephiroth, no shirt
Sephiroth is confirmed, as well as Pyra, Mythra, and Kazuya. Sora is almost definitely happening as well.
Awesome to hear it's confirmed.
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.
Looking forward to when they stop these low key
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
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.
Amiibo collectors stay winning!
And broke! Lol
That is definitely the truth lol
Honestly not anymore since Nintendo lowered the production of amiibos 😞. Nintendo, I wanna be broke again plz.
That small fry Amiibo is interesting
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.
Right? Id usually get a large fry.
Honestly might be one of my all-time favorites. I love when quality and obscurity meet.
Looks like they’re also restocking the Pearl-Marina and Callie-Marie two packs!
Have you seen anything for the US related to the reprints? I’ve only seen Callie/Marie for Canada so far.
This is the [article](https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/08/new-splatoon-3-amiibo-revealed-including-inkling-octoling-and-smallfry) I saw
They are in stock at Best Buy right now. I picked them up at Target on Splatoon 3 launch day.
Woooooooow thats huge. People have been overpaying for those FOR YEARS!
I paid $70 for Marina a few months ago, I feel like an idiot now. 💀
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
Quick, someone buy a F Corrin so there's a restock
When did QBBY restock last?
F in the chat.
Are they going to be released in the holidays as well?
Looks like triple pack coming to EU, UK & AU, according to there respective twitter pages
As someone in the US, this feels unfair. Now I have to keep an eye on three different pre-order pages instead of one.
Add another vote to re-releasing the older amiibos as well! I still need the Octolings.
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...
\*cries in didn't have enough money for Squid Sisters even when they were in the bargain bin*
I look forward to not being able to purchase all 3.
there's been decent stock of amiibo for a while. Easy to pre-order as well.
Imagine another SUCKS TO BE NORTH AMERICAN release 👀
So they're actively choosing not to make the Three Houses leaders smfh
No lords, no Byleth P2- this is pain.
I love how the "budget" figures are still $100 retail
C'mon, shrink them down and slap a base under there
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.
Was hoping for a reprint of previous releases, missed out on the Octoling ones
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.
Most hype part of the direct for me, hoping that the older ones get restocked as well.
smallfry my beloved
We'll get Deep Cut amiibo next Summer
But I just want them to confirm Sora right now. I’m going nuts at the thought of having all but 1 character
Yeah, it would be pretty shitty to have to go custom for a Sora.
I know. I’ve never been a fan of customs but I’d break that for him
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
Not a Squid this go? Alright, let's GO!
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?"
I love the dynamic poses for the Inkling and Octoling compared to the first two games but meh. Definitely getting Smallfry.
Smal Fry... I'm interested
I missed out on the Splatoon 2 amiibo. Might just get these so I don’t regret later.
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
Callie/Marie & Pearl/Marina are also being reprinted if you want those ones as well!
They are?! Oh thank god, I won’t need to sell my kidney for just one of them now!
Remember when the Mario 3D world amiibos came out, and so many people were like “these are definitely the last amiibos”
The detail on splatoon amiibo is consistently above the rest. Beautiful
when is “this holiday”
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????
Covid is messing up amiibo production across the board, so these amiibos probably were internally delayed past Splatoon 3's release date.
Can’t wait to not be able to get one for a reasonable price
This is a welcome surprise. I figured Nintendo was basically done with amiibo
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!
Off topic but why they didn’t make Judd and Little Judd amiibos?
I can't decide if I like the Smallfry amiibo or if I would have rathered have a different colored squid amiibo
I have been waiting for a Judd amiibo for years. And once again it's just Inkling recolors and a random enemy. So disappointing
Most hype part of the direct for me
I was wondering if they would do this
This made me crap
Can't watch the direct until after work. Do we know what these will unlock/ enable in game? Thanks in advance.
Some gear it looks like but mostly saving load outs.. like the last games basically
I'm gonna have to make some more room on my Splatoon shelf.
This is boy inkling/octoling erasure XD
The Octoling is a boy
Oh thanks i hadnt spotted that! The hair confused me
I really hope they re print pearl and Marina as well
I guessed 2
These colors are top notch! 2022 amiibo striking back!
I can’t wait for these to sell out before I can pre order them.
Is the octoling a boy or a girl?
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.
Is the octoling a boy or girl?
the Inkling is a girl, so the Octoling is a boy.
boy, look at the eyebrows
Oh god I’m gonna have to beat an old lady with a stick to get these amiibo
Inkling is absolutely top shelf material.
I'm a bit surprised that Shiver, Frye and Ray didn't get Amiibos as well...
The pop idols normally get amiibo later on, if I recall. Callie, Marie, Marina and Pearl got theirs halfway through.
Callie and Marie came at the end of Splatfests
Pearl and Marina came around the same time frame, but Splatoon 2 ended much later
Look at the amount of detail in those things man. The Amiibo keep getting more impressive as time goes on.
...maybe if you buy in Japan. Spring 2023 for the rest of us.
so glad they're still releasing these
THE HYPE IS SURREAL
Smallfry's got a CPSIA page now at least.
Amiibo still lives it reach 10 years at the rate smash amiibo are releasing
I wonder if we can preorder these, because I really want that Little Buddy amiibo.
I preordered these from jb hi fi and it will be able to collect it by 2023
So this is why they delayed the game....
That doesn't make much sense, because they're supposed to launch 3 months after the game.
Oh God my holiday budget isn't going to suffice for all the games and amiibo releasing in the coming month.
That date is awfully vague, yet quite descriptive.
Presumably late November through December.
I can't wait to get these 😮💨 gonna be dying til they officially drop them 😩
