Nintendo Amiibo Character - Inkling Boy (Splatoon Collection)
Discover amiibo, a brand new way to interact with your favourite Nintendo characters and games. Amiibo are a series of Nintendo character toys that interact with multiple games on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS consoles. Data on the chip will be transferred into the game and used in a range of ways. As you play, your figure's data will also be updated, so keep playing to make your amiibo unique!
In the game Splatoon, the main characters, Inklings, can instantly transform into squids! We’re not sure what marvel of anatomy allows them to perform this majestic feat, but it sure is sweet. In squid form, Inklings can swim in any surface they’ve splattered with ink, even up walls! They can also hide from opponents by submerging in ink and keeping still. How cool is that?
Amiibo went on sale at the launch of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with more characters set to be announced in 2015. Characters already announced include Mario, Link, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, and many more!
