Trailer was amazing

Why do I keep seeing people say $20 is too much for a story expansion + playable octolings? The story will have 80 missons which, correct me if I'm wrong, is about the same, if not more than the original campaign. And considering how much free DLC they have given us, why are people complaining about this? This was made after the game was released. This is DLC worth paying for.

I have the feeling it's because playable octolings were one of the most demanded features, and it's now behind DLC. If this pack were to release with just the campaign, and the octolings were free, I'm willing to bet people would take it much better.

Fair price i could say. I don't have the game yet since i'm not that big on online. But with two good singleplayer campaigns i might be tempted.

Splatoon 2 is now an $80.00 dollar game.

I've put over 100 hours into the base game, I'm more than happy to give another 20e as a message of "make more of this please" to Nintendo.

If you watch the 0:41 - 0:43 mark, you'll see that Pearl and Marina look verrry familiar. If you're a fan 90s Rap music, you should recognize them right away!

Damn, ending the direct with this and smash was just too much hype. I bet most people's body weren't ready for this killer combo.

Size will not be an issue.
