Nintendo Switch


 

Nintendo has announced two new amiibo based on Splatoon 2‘s fan-favorite characters—Pearl and Marina—will be available later this year. A new edition of the multiplayer shooter will also be launched, with a focus on bringing in new players.

In a flashy teaser trailer, seen below, the “Off the Hook” hosts of Splatoon 2‘s inking antics will soon be collectible amiibo. While the in-game functionality of both were not revealed, Nintendo confirmed fans can get Pearl and Marina in a two-pack for $24.99. Pre-orders will be available soon, but a release date has not been announced.

On top of the new amiibo, the Splatoon 2 Starter Edition was also recently announced to arrive in North America on March 16th (via Glixel). The upcoming rerelease comes with the game, a strategy guide, and two sheets of stickers for $59.99, giving players new to the series all the tools they need to get started.

The new plans for Splatoon 2 don’t end there, though. A fresh map and weapon will be added to the game soon. The Dark Tetra Dualies will let players dodge roll up to four times in a row, while the Goby Arena map is modeled after a basketball court.

Apart from keeping players invested, the Nintendo Switch title has reason to expand its content. Splatoon 2 has sold over 4.9 million copies since its summer 2017 launch, and it recently passed a milestone in Japan. On January 7th, the game became the first home-console title to sell 2 million copies since Wii Party in 2010.
