We learned back in February that everyone's favourite TV-based twosome from Splatoon 2 were getting their own 'Off The Hook' amiibo, and we've been waiting with baited breath (and baited bank balance) for more details ever since. So here's the good news: Nintendo has finally confirmed the double-pack of Pearl and Marina will arrive on 13th July. Better yet, you can pre-order your very own set right now. Off the hook, or what?
Add that to the news of the newly-revealed Octo Expansion and Splatoon 2 is fast becoming the most talked about (and most consistently supported) first-party title on Nintendo Switch. With regular Splatfest events and weapon variants, it's become one of the most highly-played games here at Nintendo Life.
Will you be adding to your collection of amiibo come July, or would you rather invest in some Octo Expansion action? Let us know in the comments below...
As of right now, it looks like this is only available to pre-order in the US. Keeping a close eye on the official UK store!
What do they do?
I really want Marina, and I don't even know what she does.
But what do they do?!?!?!?!
I want the new Tupac and Notorious B.I.G, Marina and Pearl amiibo variants pronto! I don't mind having a bunch of amiibo for Splatoon, since the load outs save to your indiv amiibo.
How much do you want to bet the Octo DLC comes out the same day?
I'll get it from Best Buy since I can get it for $19.99 with GCU, maybe less if I use my reward points.
Also getting the Octo Expansion so that's another $19.99 there. This year is no good for my bank account.
Just gimme my Pearlie right now!
@Dang69 More like Notorious I.N.K....... I'll see myself out
I've put over 400 hours into Splatoon 2, and while I do enjoy Pearl and Marina's banter, I have no desire to have their figurines on my display. MAYBE if they unlock something neat, but I really doubt it.
...Although if it unlocks the Biggie/Tupac gear, I may have to buy them on principle.
Ninty are releasing a lot of stuff on my bday this year.
"Will you be adding to your collection of amiibo come July, or would you rather invest in some Octo Expansion action?"
Hmmm I think I'll choose both!
Like a few others have said, what functionality do these actually have?
Where/when do we get the preorders outside of USA though?? >_<
Just in time for my daughter's birthday. She will love these.
@RusevDay Yeah and your birthday is on Rusev Day too. Lucky!
What do they unlock
Is it really that difficult to stat in the article this pre-order is only for US? Is NL a US site?
@Fooligan so weird as my kid bro’s 21st was on rusev day this past week too and my best mate gets married on rusev day
I feel let down by NL right now. got excited and it turns out it's just NA. Wouldn't have hurt to put that in the title..or just anywhere in the article, would it?
Definitely going to get these, but I just want to know what they'll DO! I mean it's easy to assume they'll just allow you to view concerts as the case was with Callie and Marie in Splatoon 1, but..
@YamAsereht Most of the Nintendolife team are from the UK
Not bothered about functionality. They’ll sit lovely next to my 100+ amiibo
@1UP_MARIO Disappointment and regret.
I love Splatoon 2, so I preodered these. Can't get enough of this game!
In. North. America.
Not that hard to add in 3 words to your clickbait article.
Woohoo, thanks for the tip; just pre-ordered. Now I'll resume waiting on Nintendo to release a Judd/Li'l Judd Amiibo. C'mon guys!
Here's a bet: this releases on the same day as Octo Expansion.
Err, let me rephrase: I predict the Octo Expansion will release alongside this.
@justin233 129301939812y3071`1`-2-82`-2`1081274yihbkl1knel dollars.
Word Nerd Alert: it's "bated breath", not "baited".
I want these to go with my Inkling Boy. Not enough to preorder, but a definite buy if I see them in the wild.
@JasmineDragon I think it was a fish pun. You catch fish with bait.
