We've been seeing hackers play as Octolings in Splatoon for quite some time now, but we've all been wondering if Nintendo was actually going to make this happen. Now we're finally starting to see some hints that this could indeed be part of a future update.
イカ vs タコ対決フェスの直前だが、フレンド交流サービス「イカリング」がタコからの攻撃を受け、乗っ取られてしまったようだ。 ただ、サービス自体は問題なく利用できるので、そこは安心してほしい。 しかし「タコリング」っておいしそうだな。https://t.co/Nhtqek4cMC— Splatoon（スプラトゥーン） (@SplatoonJP) October 9, 2015
The official Splatoon Twitter account in Japan recently tweeted out mention of the ongoing battle between the squid and octopus factions.
This battle/invasion is also present on the SplatNet website, where players recently started seeing octopus icons floating around in the background. That seems a little too convenient to happen by mistake, especially with Nintendo talking about the fierce battle between the two sides.
These are admittedly small findings for right now, but they do seem to be teases. Do you think we'll be seeing playable Octolings in the near future? Thanks to J22 for the heads up!
"For the last year we've had a specific private Telltale Minecraft server. We've tinkered around in Telltale town and built all kinds of contraptions and buildings, and we've been documenting everything that's been going on in there." - Job Stauffer, creative communications director at Telltale
"We're not going to go out looking for something desperately in order to expand the narrative. It's not like we sat down and went, 'Hey, we need more ways to make narrative in Minecraft.' But if something cool comes along and it kind of fits, and we feel like we could do a really good job and do justice to the game, I don't see why not." - Owen Hill, creative communications director at Mojang
