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

Each Splatoon Amiibo unlocks a special 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

Though Nintendo hasn't 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 oversize 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.
