Following Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 Direct yesterday, we were introduced to the new duo that hosts Splatfests, Marina and Pearl.
The successors to Callie and Marie form the duo band Off the Hook. In addition, Nintendo announced that the first Splatfest for Splatoon 2 would be July 15th. Released as a free demo the week before Splatoon 2 comes out, Nintendo is giving those with a Switch to try the game before its official release.
Pearl, the inkling of the dynamic duo, is rooting for cake, and Marina, an octoling, sides with ice cream. This is the first we’ve seen of octolings in Inkopolis. Further, it raises the question: are there more octolings afoot in Inkopolis? Only time will tell.
