Surprising absolutely no one Nintendo has just announced that Pearl and Marina from Splatoon 2 will become the latest addition to the plastic revolution known as amiibo. At the time of writing we don't know when they'll be dropping or what goodies they'll unlock, but we do know that the two inkling celebs will come with a price tag of $24.99 for a pack of two. A small teaser trailer was also revealed that showcases the fine plastic details on each amiibo.

This announcement comes hot of the heels from the duo's début live concert at Niconico Tokaigi and coincides with Japan's National Foundation Day.

We've also learned Splatoon 2 will be getting a new weapon variant with the Dark Tetra Dualies (which enable you to perform four dodge rolls in a roll and even fire while rolling) along with a brand new level - the Goby Arena, set on a state-of-the-art basketball court. Time for some red hot dunks!
