Nintendo seems to be the center of gaming rumors these days, what with every NX hypothesis making its way to trending status on every conceivable social network. The latest rumor to come out of the video game giant suggests something, that, quite frankly, isn’t all that difficult to believe when you consider the success of its NFC toy line. According to files within Splatoon that were revealed by Twitter user @NWPlayer1234, two more Splatoon amiibo could be making their way to store shelves sooner rather than later.
Here’s the bombshell tweet that got the rumor mill churning:
Eh, screw it. Squid Sisters amiibo, coming soon to a retailer near you pic.twitter.com/yzE8dsKSLB

The big deal here is that two items dubbed AmiiboIdolA and AmiiboIdolB are hanging out in Splatoon’s files, and since the Squid Sisters currently do not have amiibo figurines, this could mean that they are going to be a real thing. This rumor gains a bit more credence when you consider that the Squid Sisters recently starred in their own live concert in Japan. After all, that’s some pretty curious timing.
With the runaway success of amiibo, in spite of their very limited in-game functionality, Nintendo has proven once again that it knows how to dive right into the wallets of gamers far and wide. Could we be seeing more Splatoon amiibo in the near future? Only time will tell.
