Splatoon 2 to Receive an Octoling Amiibo This December

If you've been hoping for a brand-new amiibo to add to Splatoon 2, Nintendo is about to fulfill your wishes in time for the holidays. The company sent out a tweet over the weekend that got buried in all of their San Diego Comic-Con coverage that media outlets finally noticed, as they'll be giving you a triple pack of characters to use with the Nintendo Switch game.

The pack will be coming out on December 7th, just in time for holiday shopping and what will probably be one of the last updates the game receives from Nintendo.

As many others have pointed out, the December 7th date also coincides with the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, leading many to speculate that the Splatoon 2 amiibos will have some kind of interaction with the fighting game. If that is indeed the case, it does bring up the question of what other amiibos will work with SSBU when it eventually is released this winter, or if there are more figures on the way that could serve a double purpose with their game and SSBU. Of course, let's be honest here: there's a really good chance these will only provide cosmetic features in the game and nothing more.
