Splatoon: amiibo compatibility list


The inklings are here to paint the town orange and blue in Nintendo's first online shooter, Splatoon.

When you think online third-person shooter, Nintendo probably isn't the first publisher to spring to mind.

An online third-person shooter featuring cutesy squid-humanoids with ink (paint) guns, though?

Yeah, that sounds like Nintendo.

When Splatoon was first announced, it was met with mixed reactions. Some were confused about what Splatoon was exactly. Others just wanted another Metroid or Zelda game. Now that the messy multiplayer titles have surfaced, players all over the world are falling in love with its quirky charm and addictive skirmishes.

Splatoon does have a limited solo campaign, but the real fun is in its online multiplayer. The player picks their inkling (boy or girl, pictured above) and weapon. They are then thrown into a map with seven other players, split into teams of four. The aim for both teams is to coat the majority of the playing field with your team's colour.

You do this by shooting ink, setting off ink bombs and taking out the opposing team in an effort to slow their progress. You can also transform into a squid and swim through the puddles of ink, making travelling around the map a breeze.

How to use amiibo in Splatoon

Splatoon for Wii U from ozgameshop.com

Splatoon is a 4v4 multiplayer shooter that throws players into an arena where two teams go head-to-head to stake their claim on the area. Inklings of each team spray ink on the ground around them while blotting out the opposing team members in ground control competitions.
