This morning’s Splatoon Direct finally raised the curtain on amiibo support for the anticipated shooter. Missions will be unlocked by tapping one of the three supported amiibo on the Wii U GamePad.

Each amiibo unlocks more than 20 missions. If those missions are cleared, new gear and exciting 8-bit mini games like Squid Racer will be unlocked as well.
