Splatoon 2 Shares a Valentine’s Day Message from the Deepsea Metro


For Valentine’s Day, Nintendo has shared a new picture for Splatoon 2, showing off the main members of the New Squidbeak Splatoon who appear in Octo Expansion.

Here’s the picture below:

The picture shows off Cap’n Cuttlefish gifting a chocolate bar, while Agent 3 and Agent 8 hanging out together on one of the Deepsea Metro’s trains. As the player is the one who chooses the gender of each of the characters, female Agent 3 and male Agent 8 could really be stand-ins for any combination of the characters you want. (Compare this to male Agent 3 and female Agent 8 in the 1st anniversary artwork)

Nintendo also included a message with the Tweet, which reads:

“Today is Valentine’s Day. We’ve received a greetings card from our squid researcher. Of course, you should say your feelings to the person who you’re into, but it’s also a nice idea if you express thanks to those who have supported you as well.”

Since the end of the Final Splatfest, Splatoon 2 has really quieted down news-wise, with only a concert last October, as well as a balance patch released in January. We also got some cute art over Christmas last year, but also an intriguing message via its New Year’s art.

Splatoon 2 is available on Nintendo Switch.
