Many people since the release of Splatoon, have wanted to play as the Octolings. They are characters with cool designs and it would be interesting seeing how they would play within Splatoons ink and squid mechanics. We might see an answer to this though, as it’s rumored that they will be playable in the upcoming Switch version of Splatoon.
Reported by Liam Robertson, trusted reporter from Unseen64, this would be a nice new addition to the game on top of the implied new weapons and gear we saw from the Switch Unveiling video. This is a rumor and not an official statement from Nintendo. Please wait for an official comment for Nintendo, as rumors could be wrong.
