salmonlings? Really?If we're not getting Splatoon 3 until we get the Switch successor, what kind of games or special content will us Splatoon fans get? The Switch could be on the market and supported by Nintendo for at least another four years. I'm not sure I can wait that long. After next year, the Switch will already surpass the Wii U lifespan.
Octolings were going to be playable in the original Splatoon, but were cut because the developers wanted to properly introduce them story-wise, which we eventually got as the Octo Expansion. Splatoon 3 should introduce Salmonlings as the third playable species. Since all enemy Octolings are girls, I can imagine all enemy Salmonlings being boys. Octoling culture is female-dominated, so Salmonling culture can be male-dominated. Salmonling girls can be playable though, just like Octoling boys.
If Salmonlings get introduced officially, they can make the enemy Salmonlongs unlockable, and playable after clearing Splatoon 3 "Salmon Expansion", while Octolings get playable right from the get-go, like I said in another post, but now make the enemy Octolings playable as well. They can both be called "Ex-Enemy Octoling" and "Ex-Enemy Salmoning" with the Ex-Enemy Octoling being a girl, and the Ex-Enemy Salmonling being a boy.
After DLC Pass 2 gets completed, Sakurai could either announce a Pass 3, or end DLC for this game, and move on to his next project. I'm hoping this month, if not, next month for sure, we'll get an announcement for Challenger Pack 7.
Maybe I'm just repeating things from earlier posts. I'm just a man with interesting ideas I wish would become a reality. It's been a hectic year, with not much exciting going on, and I've been dying for more exciting news and updates.
