The wait has been long, but finally, the budding Inklings and Octolings can return to the arena on Friday when Splatoon 3 launches on Switch. And you know what else comes with new game releases? Envy for all the cool merchandise we miss out on!
And Nintendo Tokyo has made our hearts burn by revealing a pretty adorable pull-apart toy based on Smallfry. For those who don’t know, Smallfry is a type of salmonid that first appeared in Splatoon 2’s Salmon Run, and is set to appear in Splatoon 3; you can even change his hairstyle in the next game, at least following the Splatfest. World premiere demo!
Come on, no matter how tough you are, you can’t deny how cute this little guy is. watch it go:
Your specific Smallfry in Splatoon 3 will accompany you, Agent 3, in Splatoon 3’s Return of the Mammals campaign. You can throw it at enemies to damage or just distract them, it can even eat the Fuzzy Ooze!
Sadly, it looks like this toy will only be sold at the Nintendo store in Tokyo, so we’ll have to be smart and figure out how to import it if we’re desperate to add it to our collection. We don’t even know how much it will cost, but we’re already making shelf space!
What do you think of this removable toy from Smallfry? Are you desperately trying to import it? Get your comments in ink below!
