Nintendo has seen unprecedented success with its line of collectable Amiibo figures which now includes characters from nearly every Nintendo franchise, ever. They also see a lot of success from its World of Nintendo action figures and toys too, and it seems there’s a bunch of new collections on the way, one of which is Splatoon.
Toymaker Jakks Pacific has been collaborating with Nintendo for some time now with lines of Mario and Zelda toys being a must-have for any Nintendo fan. But Nintendo isn’t just about Mario and Zelda, hell, even Jakks Pacific’s Scott Neitlich agrees with me, and in this short video he details what is on the horizon for World of Nintendo in the near future.
Unfortunately we don’t get to see any of the Splatoon figures, nor do we see anything of the Metroid line he also mentioned. But I’m excited nonetheless.
I guess for now, I’ll have to stick to the Splatoon Amiibo.
