Splatoon amiibo to unlock more than costumes and challenges

Today Nintendo announced that Splatoon’s amiibo line will unlock retro-themed mini-games in addition to costumes and challenge levels.

After all 20 amiibo challenges have been unlocked, players will be able to access one of three additional old-school style games, including Squid Ball, Squid Racer, and Squid Beats.  Each one will play similarly to an NES/Famicom game of yesteryear.

Splatoon will release as a WiiU exclusive on May 29.

Spencer Campbell has summited many mountains just to shout, “Video games are for nerds!!” After extensive scientific testing, he has concluded that they are. He plans on accepting his Nobel Prize as soon as the dorks in Sweden return his calls.
