Splatoon 3 Shows New Designs for Returning Pearl and Marina and Their Newest Song


Splatoon 3 confirms the return of Off the Hook’s Pearl and Marina, with them sporting brand-new designs and a fresh new song.

Splatoon 3 is currently one of Nintendo’s most anticipated releases for this Summer. It has been shown extensively through both trailers in showcases such as the Nintendo Direct, as well as various updates on its official Twitter account. These updates have given insight into what players can expect, such as the weapons that will be available in Splatoon 3, as well as other details such as the stylish outfits that can be bought in-game. Some of these updates also extend to one of the most iconic aspects of the series, the music.

Splatoon‘s music is definitely unique, taking inspiration from all sorts of genres from pop, rock, and more that fit the aesthetics and world of a paintball-based third-person shooter. The Twitter account has been sharing a couple of new songs from some new in-universe bands and singers, such as Front Roe, which has a punk-rock vibe that fits the atmosphere of Splatoon 3. Some fans are hoping that certain singers and characters will be coming back, with the latest update showing that fan favourites Pearl and Marina will be returning for this sequel.

Pearl and Marina are part of the fictional pop idol duo Off the Hook, who were introduced in Splatoon 2 as the game’s hostesses. They both provide updates to players about the maps and the in-game events such as Splatfests. They also sing a couple of songs that play during the game, such as “Ebb and Flow,” “Shark Bytes,” and “Nasty Majesty.” The duo is returning in Splatoon 3 with brand-new designs, with Pearl wearing a new white coat while Marina sports a stylish orange jacket and set of heels.

The Splatoon 3 Twitter account also reveals that they have formed a band with three new yet unnamed members, now known as Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook. A new track for fans to listen to was also unveiled, known as “Candy-Coated Rocks,” combining a rocking guitar with piano instrumentals. The art piece accompanying the song shows these new band members to be an anglerfish, a trout, and an Octopus playing a variety of instruments, with Marina on the piano and Pearl as the vocals.

Fans expressed their surprise that not only Pearl and Marina would be coming back to the game with a new band, but they also managed to stay together after the events of Splatoon 2 and its final Splatfest. Many also noted their happiness that they will have some new music in the game, with some expressing their love for this new single and looking forward to more songs from them.

Splatoon 3 will launch on September 9 for Nintendo Switch.
