Splatoon 2’s Squid Sister Stories Tells Us About Marie’s Doubts Over The Final Splatfest. May 2, 2017 . 9:30am

Nintendo has released the second chapter in their ongoing short story, the “Squid Sister Stories,” featuring what happened to Callie & Marie following the Final Splatfest. The intro and prologue can be read here, while the first chapter covered how the Final Splatfest had impacted the Squid Sisters’ lives.

In this newest installment courtesy Splatoon 2’s official website, we get a look into Marie’s thoughts after the final battle as she wonders if her victory has somehow negatively affected her and Callie’s relationship. You can read the chapter below.
Marie was home alone. She’d gotten a day off, but with theater rehearsals starting up next month, she knew life would be returning quickly to its frantic pace. Chances to relax at home like this would soon become few and far between. Knowing work would keep Callie out late, Marie busied herself with the chores that always seemed to pile up and waited for her friend to return home.


At times like this, Marie’s thoughts always seemed to drift…
“How had Callie truly felt when the results of the final Splatfest had been announced? She seemed disappointed, of course, but that was just because she’d lost…right? Or was she actually jealous of my rising popularity? Could she still be holding it against me after all this time?”


“Just listen to yourself, Marie—you’re overthinking this. You know Callie would never feel that way. Maybe all this worrying has actually given you some sort of superiority complex. Maybe winning that final Splatfest has made you full of yourself.”
The very idea stung Marie with a twinge of self-loathing…

Splatoon 2 is set to release on July 21st, 2017 for the Nintendo Switch.

Splatoon 2 unveils single-player mode

One of the Squid Sisters has gone missing. Find her!






Nintendo has released a new trailer and set of screenshots for Splatoon 2 introducing the game’s single-player mode.




Here’s an overview of the mode, via Nintendo:
In a shocking twist, Callie – of Squid Sisters fame – has gone missing and her right-tentacle squid Marie tasks the player to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish. Players can use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling or the new Dualies.



The single-player mode is designed to teach players tips and tricks that they can then use in multiplayer. For more on the Squid Sisters, check out the Squid Sisters Stories here.
Splatoon 2 is due out for Switch on July 21.
Watch the trailer below.

The Seventh And Final “Squid Sisters Stories” Sets The Stage For Splatoon 2. May 18, 2017 . 11:30am

Nintendo has shared the seventh and final chapter of their narrative “Squid Sisters Stories,” which tells the story of what happened to Callie & Marie following the Final Splatfest.

In this final chapter, Marie returns to Inkopolis only to be unable to locate Callie. What’s worse, she finds that the city is being threatened once more by the Octarians. You can read it all below. For previous chapters, you can go here.
Quick as she could, Marie arrived in Octo Valley. Cap’n Cuttlefish’s shack was completely deserted. The shack itself was undisturbed, but the snow globe that had stood beside it was a shattered wreck—pieces of glass littered the landscape. Callie was nowhere to be found, and the scene failed to offer up any clues. With a heavy heart, Marie made her way back to Inkopolis.


The city was buzzing with unbelievable news. The Great Zapfish had disappeared! It had vanished once before, but reappeared shortly thereafter.


The people of the city consoled each other, saying, “Chill out! It won’t be gone long this time, either!”
Marie alone shivered in trepidation. “Could he possibly be at it again?”


Marie made up her mind get to the bottom of this.


But if their adversary was who she suspected, this problem would have no quick and easy solution.


Cap’n Cuttlefish wasn’t around to help this time. Her worry for Callie overshadowed everything, and before long, the squidizens of Inkopolis would begin to notice Callie’s absence. If Marie were to disappear, too, at a time like this, it would only add to the chaos. But what else could she do?


There was no choice but to find help, and quickly.

Just as Cap’n Cuttlefish had done before, she would need to enlist a brave recruit to help investigate the depths of the Octarians’ underground base. Thanks to her fame, though, Marie stood out like a sore tentacle in Inkopolis. She had to keep the number of people who knew about the new Octarian threat to a minimum. Secrecy and discretion were, after all, of the utmost importance when it came to the operations of the Squidbeak Splatoon.


Suddenly, the conversation she’d had with Callie at Arowana Mall came rushing back to her. Word on the street was that all the freshest Inklings were hanging out and battling for turf in a new part of town. Surely she could find someone there with the perfect blend of talent and bravery this daring task required.

Her mind made up, Marie set her sights on the new center of squid kid culture, Inkopolis Square!

The story continues in Splatoon 2…

Splatoon 2 will release for the Nintendo Switch on July 21st, 2107.

Just over a week ago, it was revealed that the topic of Splatoon 2’s second Splatfest would be between mayonnaise and ketchup in Europe. It has now been confirmed that this topic will be the same in both North America and Japan, as well.

As for when the Splatfest will take place, the time will be different for each region. For North America, the event will begin on Friday, August 4 at 9 PM PT / Saturday, August 5 at 12 AM ET and will end one full day later. Additionally, it seems the results of the Splatfest will be tallied separately, with Nintendo noting that the results will be unique based on their region.

A similar weapon called the Hero Brella is available through the single player mode but it has not been made available for multiplayer yet. The weapon fitting features the Sprinkler as a sub-weapon and the Ink Storm special weapon.

If you haven’t tried out the weapon for yourself, you can get an idea how it works in the gameplay video below:

Just like it was in the first Splatoon, the Gold Dynamo Roller is identical to the Dynamo Roller in terms of range, speed, weight, and power, but it comes with a different Splat Bomb sub-weapon and Ink Armor special weapon.








Nintendo also announced that the classic stage Blackbelly Skatepark will be making its way to Splatoon 2 at the same time the Gold Dynamo Roller makes it into the game, at 11:00am JST in Japan on October 28, so that’s 7:00pm PT/10:00pm ET later today in North America, and early tomorrow morning at 4:00am CEST for Europe.

The Inkbrush Nouveau is a variation of the Inkbrush with the same stats but instead of the Splat Bomb sub and Splashdown special it comes with the Ink Mine sub and Baller special.





We can expect to see the Inkbrush Nouveau make its debut in Splatoon 2 at 11:00am JST in Japan on November 11. That’s 6:00pm PT/9:00pm ET later today in North America, and early tomorrow morning at 3:00am CET for Europe.
