A new Splatoon 2 themed set of amiibo figures will be hitting the shelves this holiday season, according to Nintendo of America’s Twitter feed. The three-pack will include an Octoling Girl, Octoling Boy, along with an Octoling in octopus form who is simply brimming with attitude. The team of adorable little critters all share a smooth pink and black color scheme.

The set is scheduled for release on December 7 this year; a date that will coincide with the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will mark the debut of Splatoon characters within the ever-expanding roster. This installment will be jam-packed full of wild and eccentric personalities, featuring a whopping 65 fighters from across the Nintendo universe. Inklings will not be the only newbie to brave the energetic battle this time around; Metroid’s Ridley and Super Mario Land‘s Princess Daisy will also be joining the fray later this year.

The Splatoon 2 amiibo set will be compatible with Nintendo Switch, but there is no word just yet on whether or not they will unlock anything within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Anyone looking to pre-order the three pack can do it right now via Amazon (before the scalpers snatch them).
