New Splatoon 3 Screenshots Show Octarian Enemies

There are some new Splatoon 3 screenshots, and they focus on showing Octarian enemies that will show up in-game. As with the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, these will be a new variant. Like Sanitized Octarians, they look a bit different than usual. This time, their tentacles appear to be covered in hair. No Octolings appear in this look at foes.

The first two screenshots shows a number of different Splatoon 3 Octarian enemies. There are the basic Octotroopers again. These are perched on top of black, blue, and yellow vehicles that appear to hop around and have a means of shooting ink. One of them, on top of a black machine, is a Twintacle Octotrooper. In the upper left corner is an Octocopter. In the picture with multiple foes, there is a larger one with a weapon on its head looks like the newest take on the Octobomber. Octostamps also wear headphones now.

There also seem to be some Octarian enemies in the Splatoon 3 screenshots based on existing foes. There are also flying Octoballs that resemble disco balls. Finally, there are some new missile-like enemies. In the past, Octozepplin and Octomissiles showed up. These new enemies look like they have bomb elements, but they run on the ground rather than fly.
