Splatoon 3 Amiibo Guide: Every Amiibo Gear Set and How to Unlock Them


Like previous games in the series, Splatoon 3 is compatible with a range of Amiibo figures. In addition to the three new Amiibo launching this holiday, the game supports all previous Splatoon figures — so if you already have some in your collection, you can scan them to nab some exclusive rewards.

Each Splatoon Amiibo unlocks an exclusive set of gear that can’t otherwise be obtained in the game. Here’s what gear you get with each figure and how to scan them.

Splatoon Amiibo Gear

While Nintendo has not yet announced what the upcoming Splatoon 3 Amiibo figures will unlock, every previous Splatoon series Amiibo nets you at least one piece of headgear, clothing and shoes. Here’s the full list so far:

How to Scan Amiibo

As in Splatoon 2, in order to scan an Amiibo in Splatoon 3, you must first interact with the oversized Amiibo box located in Splatsville. When prompted, place your Amiibo figure on your controller and wait several seconds to scan it. Once the scan is complete, the character will greet you in the game, and you’ll add that figure’s associated gear to your collection.

Splatoon 3 is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Returning players can transfer some data from Splatoon 2, but only when first starting up the game. If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, you can also grab a slick free background for your Splashtag.
