Pearl and Marina amiibo announced as Off the Hook hold first concert

Monday, 12 Feb, 2018

What better time to announce a new set of amiibo than around the same time as the performance? Besides a cereal box and a jumbo Pikachu, there hasn't been much going on in the world of amiibo. Nintendo revealed that a Marina amiibo and Pearl amiibo will be coming to retail in the future.

The new amiibo weren't the only things to be announced during the show, however.

The trailer gives us a close-up look at these new figures.

The release date for the Pearl and Marina amiibo isn't known as of yet, nor is it known how they will function in the game. First, you've got Pearl, the cute and sassy MC with a talent for spitting fire.

Splatoon 2 has continued to receive a steady amount of content since its debut back in 2017, with new weapons, regular competitions between two teams (ketchup or mayo, etc.) and plenty of fans excited to play more. In Japanese, the map is called "Aji Furai Stadium" (literally translated to fried mackerel stadium). The map will feature a basketball court named Goby Arena. Additionally, a new weapon known as the Dark Tetra Dualies will allow players to shoot while rolling and allow up to four dodge rolls in a row.
