The wait has been long, but finally the budding Inklings and Octolings may be back in the arena on Friday when Splatoon 3 launches on Switch. And do you know what else comes with new game releases? Envy all the cool items we’re missing out on!
And Nintendo Tokyo has set our hearts on fire with the introduction of a rather adorable toy based on Smallfry. For those not in the know, Smallfry is a type of salmon that first appeared in Splatoon 2’s Salmon Run and will appear in Splatoon 3 – you can even change his hairstyle in the upcoming game, at least for Splatfest. World Premiere Show!
Come on, as stone as you are, you can’t deny how cute this guy is. Watch it go
Your specific Smallfry in Splatoon 3 will accompany you, Agent 3, in the Splatoon 3 “Return of the Mammals” campaign. You can throw it at enemies to deal damage or just to distract them – it can even eat fluffy slime!
Unfortunately, it looks like this toy will only be sold at the Nintendo Store in Tokyo, so we’ll have to get smart and figure out how to import it if we’re desperate to add it to our collection. We do not even know how much it will cost, but we are already freeing up space on the shelves!
