With the immense popularity of Splatoon behind us, the sequel is off to a similar start. Although the game hasn’t officially released, players have gotten a taste of what’s in store through various previews. What’s most interesting to me though, are the fan’s responses to the new musical characters: Pearl and Marina. Although both characters are loved, I’d like to focus on Marina; specifically because she’s drawn the most attention out of the two.
Marina At a Glance
In the game of Splatoon, Marina is a creature known as an Octoling. She differs greatly from the usual squid-kid characters called Inklings. She has octopus tentacles for hair and slightly different facial features. The reason why her inclusion is so shocking to players is because the Inklings and Octolings were pretty much enemies in the previous game. It’s odd for her to appear and be welcomed into their civilization.
Marina is also described as being a “reserved” character. She appears to have trouble interacting with others (outside of her partner Pearl) and is depicted with nervous looks at all times. In her duet’s with Pearl she sings mostly the background vocals while Pearl covers the main parts, representing aspects of their personality.
