Next Week's New Splatoon 2 Pearl and Marina Amiibo Perks Revealed

The duo has look inspired by their Octo Expansion looks.

When the Octo Expansion downloadable content (DLC) for Splatoon 2 released on June 13, it brought with it new looks for series DJs Pearl and Marina. But fans of the duo had already been waiting for their previously-announced Amiibo set, a release that's right around the corner.

The set has been available for pre-order, with an upcoming release on July 13, 2018. But what magic shall these new Amiibo unlock?

Well Nintendo of Japan has released some new information that gives us a good idea of what to expect from the Amiibo set. Players who tap the Amiibo to their Switch will unlock Pearl and Marina-themed gear, and the ability to take pictures with the duo. There will also be a new mode revealed by the Amiibo, acting as a rhythm mini-game.

Of course, these are Amiibo and if you're not already on the ball, they'll probably be a little difficult to find. We wish you luck in your search.
