We're giving away an amiibo every week of summer! Welcome to Week 8: Inkling Girl! Update: Congratulations to our winner!

Nintendo keeps releasing amiibo, but you don't have to break open your wallet to get your hands on them. Why not win a free amiibo figure from Nintendo World Report? We'll be giving them away all summer long!

Every week we'll run a different contest for a different Amiibo prize. It might be a caption contest. You might need to answer trivia. Or you might need to tune into a podcast for the secret keyword for that week's random drawing! Make sure you check back each week to enter into that week's particular contest, and to get a sneak preview at the Amiibo prizes to come! (Winners of previous weeks of the NWR's Summer of Amiibo event are not eligible for subsequent prizes.)

This week's prize: Inkling Girl! This week's contest: a CAPTION CONTEST!

Come up with a witty caption for one of the images below (if you enter multiple captions, only the first one will be considered for judging) and NWR staff will do a blind vote on the wittiest! PLUS there'll be a bonus prize on top of that for a contestant chosen at random!

  2. Click the "Add to the discussion!" link at the bottom of this article to start a post
  3. Write down the image you're captioning (for example "Image 5")
  4. Write down the caption for that image (for example, "And that's the story of how I saved the world from the evil Octarians.")

I wish you would step back
From that ledge my friend...
You could cut ties - with all the lies
That you've been living in

Does EU Amiibo mean only people in Europe are invited for the contest this week?

Does EU Amiibo mean only people in Europe are invited for the contest this week?

No. It just denotes that the amiibo I have to award is the European version. Amiibo aren't region-locked so it doesn't really matter, but technically the box art is different.
