amiibo Support Listed for Splatoon on eShop

Splatoon is primed to be the sleeper hit of 2015, but there’s one thing that would make it even more appealing: amiibos. The game’s unique and colorful figures clearly lend themselves well to the physical format and at the very least being able to use amiibos from other properties to influence the game somehow (Mario and company joining the fray would be quite awesome indeed) would be fantastic.

Now it looks like that dream could indeed be reality as the eShop listing of the upcoming third-person shooter has revealed amiibo support.

No word on what this amiibo support will entail, but it’s a promising sign for the upcoming Wii U exclusive.
