It’s been an Octo-heavy year for the Switch and Nintendo intends to close 2018 by making sure you know it’s the year of Octo. The Octoling amiibo three-pack, which includes boy and girl octolings and an octopus form, will be launching on December 7 in North America.

You might be thinking that December 7 seems like a long way off, and it is, but the date is also curious because it’s the same day that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on the Switch. Nintendo hasn’t indicated that there is any interoperability between the two, but the date is curious. Maybe Octolings can be added as costumes or possibly even an Echo fighter.
Or maybe it’s just nothing! We’ll find out by at latest December 7.
