Just realized the Octoling wig is of the ENEMY version, not the OE version

Yep for some reason. I think it's mainly because Sakurai focused on Splatoon 1 content in this game which is weird in my eyes considering Splatoon 1 isn't on Switch which is understandable.

The latter which everyone here strongly prefers. It's better than nothing. But now, we have to wait several years for the next installment. We didn't get Pearl and Marina Mii costumes either. Nor will we, until possibly next installment. Since this was the finale, we can't get our hopes up for anything else regarding this game.

The Switch lifespan could go on for at least a few more years.

Future spirit events haven't been ruled out yet. I guess we could speculate on which Splatoon 3 spirits we'll get if it happens.

We recently learned more about Splatoon 3, but we didn't get the release timing yet, other than it's coming next year. It will most likely come next summer.

Let's face it, Sora was one of the all-time most requested fighters, alongside Ridley, King K. Rool, and Banjo. All of them made it in. We may never get Waluigi because Nintendo likes perpetually making him wait for his time to shine, like it will never happen. Krystal hasn't been in a Star Fox game in over a decade, and she ended up being an Assist Trophy, instead of a playable character. Isaac at least got a Mii costume, as did Bomberman, and now "Doom Guy".

As of October 21st, the entire Newcomer Speculation board will close. Everything will be read-only from here on out.

With Sora confirmed as the last fighter for this installment, the time has come. Newcomer Speculation has run its course. Once Challenger Pack #11 goes live next Monday the 18th, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will finally be a 100% completed game. Many dreams were fulfilled, and many were crushed. It will be several years before we get the next installment. The Octoling wig, which can be worn with the Inkling Gunner outfits, is the best thing we have until then.

For now, Sakurai finally gets a break from the series. He finally has a chance to work on something else as well.
