Collectors Guide to the Splatoon Amiibo Series
It is only natural that Nintendo’s next big IP gets the Amiibo treatment. Although the range of Amiibo for Splatoon is not nearly as extensive as the Super Smash Bros. Series, but nonetheless it is a worth collection to add among your other Nintendo figurines.
All Splatoon Amiibo function the same when tapped into the game. Tapping the Amiibo to your GamePad will grant you access to a number of challenges. Completing these challenges will award you exclusive in-game gear to equip to your Inkling. Each Compatible Amiibo provides their own sets of challenges and gear.
There are three unique Amiibo in the Splatoon series: Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl and Inkling Squid.
Now let’s take a look at the Amiibo themselves.
The Amiibo above is a fantastic shot of the boy Inkling.

This one is of course the Inkling Girl!

The most avid collectors will not open the packaging of the Amiibo. The value of the figurines drastically increases if it remains unopened and is in mint condition.
In Japan, consumers can buy all three Splatoon individually, with the three pack also available for purchase. In North America, the Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl can be bought individually, but the Inkling Squid is only available with the three pack.
Meanwhile in Europe, consumers can purchase the Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl individually, but the Inkling Squid can only be attained through the Splatoon and Inkling Squid Amiibo bundle.
Sadly in Australia and New Zealand, the Inkling Squid Amiibo is currently not available.
In order to complete the set you may need to import the missing link depending on region and stock availability. Unfortunately, it will not be cheap, as they are already fetching way over their recommended retail price at Ebay.
That’s it for the guide. I hope you found all the information needed to complete the Splatoon Amiibo series.
