The BFFs and “musicians”, who battled it out month after month in a wild array of Splatfest occasions, resurfaced this morning through model new art work launched by Nintendo. A brief blurb informs followers that the duo has established an all-new backing band, monikering the brand new act “Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook”. Pearl & Marina will probably be rocking vocals as at all times, with Marina demonstrating her newfound pianist abilities, while rocking a smokin’ orange energy go well with and dagger heels combo.

I don’t know what to let you know. They’re good youngsters and so they’re holding the scene alive. Whereas Splatoon 3 is planning on delivering one thing of a darker and extra industrial vibe than earlier releases, we will relaxation assured that Marina and The Queen of World will probably be sticking round to inject their very own colourful, musical comedy into the proceedings.
