During Nintendo’s recent Direct, the company teased elements of Splatoon 2’s story with a short trailer. However, they’ve now gone even further by releasing a short prologue to the game. Supposedly set months after the last Splatfest, Callie and Marie’s relationship is brought into question. It’s awesome to see the story follow on from the last game, few Nintendo games ever committing to this level of continuity. Check out the prologue below.
About nine months have passed since the final Splatfest.
Twilight lowers its curtain on Inkopolis. Neon signs paint the dusk in brilliant shades of green and pink. The Squid Sisters dance on, as though driven by the Inkling love of battling for turf.
Memories such as these linger, vividly etched in my mind, but feel too like remnants of a long-forgotten past.
It happened the night the final Splatfest came to an end.
The showdown of Callie versus Marie ended in victory for Marie, but there was no ill will between the two. The girls left the studio arm in arm, smiling and laughing as they always had. The bond between them would continue, unbroken, for years to come.
Or so it seemed at the time…
