The Pearl and Marina amiibo figures are just as awesome as you hoped. NINTENDO

It's only been months since we saw the release of Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch (since July 2017 to be exact), but the game's best characters will finally get their own release as amiibo figures and join the likes of both male and female Squid Kid figures as part of the lineup. Previously, Callie and Marie from the original Splatoon had their own amiibos and now it's time for Off the Hook (the band the squids are collectively known as) to be immortalized in colorful plastic as well.

During the pair's first live concert at Niconico Tokaigi 2018, they were brought to life alongside the Squid Sisters Callie and Marie themselves, via laser projection. What better time to announce a new set of amiibo than around the same time as the performance? Nintendo made the reveal at the end of Japan's Koshien Tournament, along with images of the amiibo so you have a good idea of what you're going to frantically preorder.

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. Marina and Pearl were huge fan favorites when the game made its debut, so it's not surprising that the girls would finally get their own figures, despite taking a very long time to be announced.

The new amiibo weren't the only things to be announced during the show, however. Nintendo also let slip that the upcoming Tetra Dualies weapons would be added to the game as well as an all-new stage known as Ajifurai Stadium. We can expect additional details to roll out about that in the coming days.

Unfortunately, despite bringing out the awesome new amiibo for us to drool over, Nintendo hasn't given us any specific details on when we can expect to be able to buy them, or what kind of features they'll give us in-game. Everyone knows Marina is the best one out of the duo, of course, so make sure you buy the duo to promote her. Pearl is just whatever (even though she thinks she's far more important than she is, right?).
