I really like the designs for these two. There's something amusing about Pearl's "bratty princess"-style look, as well as Marina's slightly awkward mannerisms.And now we have 2 new Idol hosts: Pearl and Marina(who is an Octoling!?)
Their catchphrase isn't as good, but I'm sure that they'll grow on everybody. They've got their own charm, and much like a "next big thing" band taking the top spot from another popular group in real life, it'll probably take people a bit of time to adjust.and i dont think off the hook are as good as the squid sisters but im sure they'll grow on me
Yeah, same here!btw totally team ice cream
Marina for Smash! Just look at her, what a queen. I wonder what the implications of her being an Octoling are. Are we finally going to get playable Octolings this game now that one is not only good but a celebrity?And now we have 2 new Idol hosts: Pearl and Marina(who is an Octoling!?)
Don't get your hopes up too much - from what I've seen reported, this is literally a web-cartoon version of the manga that's been running in Japan since the first game was released, and it's only going to be published on the website of the publisher of the periodical that it appears in.http://nintendoeverything.com/corocoro-making-a-splatoon-anime/
TIME TO GET LIT. NOW.
What's next, ARMS? Kid Icarus? A NEW Kirby? PLEASE keep it going, Nintendo!
I will squeeze your team dry on the ink filled field of battle in the honor of mayonnaise.team ketchup for me
Good going, fellow Team Mayo player - show those Ketchupites what-for even before we meet on the splattlefield!I will squeeze your team dry on the ink filled field of battle in the honor of mayonnaise.
Can't we have them as obnoxious little sidekicks that add power to a certain ability whilst shouting random rudeness at opponents like they do in the shops?Clownfish and crayfish remain unplayable as they're tiny hat living pets in the game.
not sure my self, flight i think
Yay! We'll be on the same team!I will reign inky destruction from above! Flight for me.
Well, even without it, of the ones that have already taken place, you've been on both of the winning teams so far.Team Ice Cream
Also I don't own Splatoon 2.
NUK PR - Introducing the Splatoon 2 UK Championship!
Welcome, Inklings of all style and skill, to the Splatoon 2 UK Championship! Following the launch of Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch, this is our search for the best Splatoon 2 squid squad in the UK!
Whether you’re a well practised quartet or a solo player hungry to dive into more competitive play, the Splatoon 2 UK Championship offers a number of ways to get involved in the splatting fun, from local* multiplayer community events up and down the country to online** qualifiers that will allow you to team up with those that might live a little further afield.
In short, through the methods detailed below, a total of eight teams of four players will qualify for a grand final to be held at EGX 2017. These top eight teams will then compete in a tournament, broadcast via the Nintendo UK Twitch page from EGX 2017 for all to see, to find the UK’s top troupe of turf troopers!
The winning team will not only receive the adoration of Splatoon 2 players the UK over, each team member will also receive a trophy, a Splatoon 2 fan-bundle full of Splatoon merchandise, and an exclusive champion’s jersey to commemorate their achievement.
For more details on the qualification routes, please see below:
Qualification Route 1 – Insomnia61 Splatoon 2 Tournament
Announced last week, a tournament will be held on Saturday 26th August at Insomnia61. The winners of this tournament will be the first team to qualify for the Splatoon 2 UK Championship Grand Final. For information, click here.
Qualification Route 2 – ESL Online Qualifiers
ESL will host online qualifiers on three dates, Saturday 2nd September, Wednesday 6th September and Saturday 9th September. Once you have created an ESL account you will be able to either create a team with other ESL members and enter a tournament that way, or enter as a solo player and let ESL put you in a team for the online event. For specific details, and to sign-up for these tournaments, please visit the ESL sign-up page by clicking here.
Qualification Route 3 – Nintendo Players UK Community Events
Local Nintendo fan groups affiliated with the independent Nintendo Players UK community are hosting a number of events around the country with a goal to find two teams to represent the Nintendo Players UK community at EGX 2017. For more details on these events, and to help you find local Splatoon players in your area, please visit the Nintendo Players UK website by clicking here.
Qualification Route 4 – Nintendo Life League Battle Pair-up
We’ve partnered with our friends at Nintendo Life to find a pair of practised cephalopods to join the best two players from Nintendo Life’s staff at EGX in the Splatoon 2 UK Championship Grand Final! To be in with a chance you’ll need to team up with a friend and play in the 19:00-21:00 League Battle on Wednesday 30th August as a pair and, after the battle, share a screenshot of your record with @NintendoLife and #UKSplatChamps on Twitter showing your pair’s highest league power. The pair with the highest league power will join Nintendo Life at EGX 2017! For more information, please visit the Nintendo Life website by clicking here.
Qualification Route 5 – EGX 2017
There will be a last-chance qualifier at EGX 2017, held at the Nintendo Switch Tournament Area on the day of the Grand Final. For more information about this tournament, please keep an eye on the Splatoon UK Facebook page and Nintendo UK Twitter account for future EGX announcements.
So shout your loudest ‘Booyah’, gather your team, consider your gear wisely and get practising! Your skills will need to be at their freshest if your team wants to be crowned the winners of the Splatoon 2 UK Championship!
Good luck and, when in the midst of battle, just remember these words: don’t get cooked, stay off the hook!
