Shown in the videos below, Nintendo has decided to finally add the popular duo to their line of Splatoon Amiibo figurines. Nintendo has released both an American announcement as well as a Japanese announcement in video form detailing the expected prices and dates in their respective countries.

American version:

Japanese version:

There are a few notable differences in the videos however. In the American version, Nintendo does not show the Squid Sisters having separate boxes like the Japanese version does. Instead, they show off a new alternate color for the currently existing Inkling and Kraken Amiibo triple-pack priced at the same as their originals; $34.99. Oddly enough, the American version only shows the Inkling Boy and the Inkling Girl having their own separate boxes.

While the Japanese version only shows the alternate colors being packaged separately, rather than being packaged together in a triple-pack.

Hopefully we’ll get more details on the packaging as the date gets closer but surely this is a joyous day for any Splatoon fan!
