Behold the glory of Splatoon's Squid Girl gear


Coming soon to everywhere!

It's happening! Everyone's favorite cephalopod-children combat painting simulator, Splatoon, is getting the long-awaited crossover with everyone's favorite cephalopod-conquest documentary, Squid Girl. Scans from the latest issue of Famitsu highlight the update, which adds in-game Squid Girl costumes for both girl and boy inklings in-game. 

But here's the good news: It's crossing the pond! The Squid Girl gear was sighted by eagle-eyed North American players poking through Splatoon's August build and was confirmed by Nintendo via Twitter. Fans of the anime can now rightly rejoice while people who've never seen Squid Girl can go watch it to see what all the fuss is about.
