Original Post

According to a posting of images from @NWPlayer123 early in the morning, Splatoon may be getting a new update with tons of new content. The Octolings, a counterpart to the Inklings in the game, will be a playable species that will be live later today.

The playable Octoloings will have the ability to change into a kraken, similar to the squid form of the Inklings during the main campaign and online multiplayer. Octolings will have they own unique special abilities that may differ from the Inklings from before. Check out some of the images from @NWPlayer123.

In addition, the leak states that Splatoon may be getting new amiibo figures for an Octoling, as well as figures for Callie and Marie (this has been confirmed as speculation based on data found in the game’s data).

Since the images were posted, NWplayer123 has faced copyright taken notices directly from Nintendo, further adding to the legitimacy of the information being leaked. His follow-up post hinted at this stating “No copyright in the world is going to stop me…” along with a picture of Sonic the Hedgehog.

There is no official word from Nintendo about any of the leaked information since the posting. The newest update for the game will go live later in the day (Sept 19th), so we may see this new content firsthand. We’ll keep you posted on everything here on The Koalition as news breaks out.
