If you’ve gotten your hands on a copy of the excellent Splatoon 3, you might know that there are a whole host of previously released amiibo that are compatible with the game. This includes the original amiibo released with the original Wii U Splatoonas well as the newer and shinier amiibo released with Splaton 2.
There are also Splatoon 3-specific amiibo set to release at a later date, but until that happens you can still unlock a whole host of tasty gear with the older models, and they look rather elegant to boot!
To note. Many of these unlocks also apply to Splatoon 2.

How to scan an amiibo
Simply go to the amiibo booth in Splatsville (almost directly behind where you spawn when starting the game) and follow the on-screen instructions to scan your actual amiibo.
You may need to scan each amiibo multiple times (playing Online Battles between said scans) in order to unlock each piece of gear offered by an amiibo. It’s not really a burden, but something to keep in mind.
It should be noted that none of the bonus items above are required to fully enjoy the game, but they are fun perks and fashion accessories to enjoy if you own one of the amiibo.
We’ll update this guide once Splatoon 3 has its own amiibo trifecta released to the public.
