There are rumors swimming about proposed amiibo based on the popular Squid Sisters characters Callie and Marie from the Nintendo splash hit, Splatoon. The Twitter user, NWPlayer1234, has discovered code within the most recent update that may reveal functionality with the proposed amiibo figurines.

Does this mean that the characters will have playable challenge portions in the game, similar to the Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Squid amiibo? What new equipment would they unlock? How would these amiibo be used in other games?
We’ve seen features expected to be in Splatoon that have yet to make themselves available in the game, but that doesn’t mean these features won’t ever become part of regular play.
With how regular the updates have been to Splatoon, gamers are expecting these features to become available eventually. Maybe the Octolings will become playable with their own amiibo somewhere down the line. There could even be a three pack containing Callie, Marie, and an Octoling.
Without official confirmation from Nintendo, fans can only wait in anticipation for the future of their beloved franchise and their adored collectibles. “Until next time…Staaaay fresh!”
