As if the streams of new weapons and maps in Splatoon weren't enough to tickle the fancy of all the budding Inklings out there, Nintendo has squeezed a previously unseen easter egg into the latest battleground known as Piranha Pit.
As with most easter eggs this one isn't immediately obvious, but that's largely due to the fact that it only seems to occur at a particular time and, naturally, in a particular location. If you look out to sea in a game of Turf War from the right spot at the right time you'll be able to see the Great Zapfish swimming about, minding its own business like a post-human Loch Ness Monster.
Check out the video below where we go into further detail about how to see this arguably legendary beast when it's not busy providing toaster fuel to the residents of Inkopolis, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven't already.
Good find! I always love little easter eggs like this.
I really hope they make the sequel to this game a launch product for the NX, as it has been one of the best games launched this generation. After seeing the youtuber supermetaldave 64 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NomKPWyl3YY & Evie B https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzNYkp9rlceH0zZqj0X2bQw concept video of the NX controller (especially the one running Splatoon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jicZ3puSvY) makes me feel like October can't come soon enough.
@megamanlink If the NX releases in 2017 or 2018, a new Splatoon game as a launch title would be doable.
Ha! Nice one, well done, must show my son
A 2017 Nx with a Splatoon sequel as a launch title would be nice. I still hope people realize, if the Nx is a home console, and it releases in 2016, Nintendo is screwed.
I completely failed to notice that.
>'We are easily distracted'
Shows Alex and whoever mucking about in ink
My thoughts exactly.
@DarthNocturnal @Calllack Yep, that's right. It does look like a giant version of Whiscash.
We need Splatoon World cup on Nintendo NX!
@amiiboacid na I doubt they would be skrewed. A lot of their a teams have been mia meaning they have been working on projects for at least two years. If they wait to long they will be in a much worse place. This is going to be a short gen for the other guys. That's my bet
Nice to hear this from someone else, as I think 2016 is way too early, while 2017 I think the NX would stand a much better chance
@John_Enigma Careful, he'll eat your Master Balls like in the anime. XD
@Angelic_Lapras_King NO! NOT MY PRECIOUS MASTER BALLS! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I actually saw it from the distance, but didn't have time to care for a closer look because it was during battle!
I saw him in that microgame in WarioWare Inc: Mega Microgame$!
@amiiboacid How so?
Outside of Zelda, what's the WIi U got?
It's been a failure; a new console and a strong push will greatly help Nintendo, financially.
@John_Enigma What are you on about? That's a ground type.
@Fee I think you mean stunkfish.
The great zapfish is so derpy, I love it.
The WiiU a failure? just because it had poor marketing and a weak lineup for its launch dosent make it a failure. It has amazing games and has sold quite a bit in the past few years. And Games like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon contributed to this. And i'm sorry but the NX isnt a home console. I know everyone wants it to be but Nintendo denied this on multiple accounts. This new system is an idea unlike anything weve ween before. the main reason we havent seen it yet is because Nintendo dosent want competitors to be stealing their idea. As they have said before. Also Nintendo said that they will not be abandoning the WiiU or 3ds as they need to still support those who has purdhased those products. Now continue to get your hopes up if you want, but I garentee you the NX will not be a home console. and ill be waiting for the day that Nintendo life makes a post about its reveal
@Torterror : Do you mean Stunfisk is the ground type or Stunfisk matches the Great Zapfish better? Because if it's the former you're only half right.
Nice! Easter Eggs like these are so interesting. I wonder if there are more secrets like these to be found?
I wish you good luck with your claim. I'm putting my money on it being a hybrid, but it'll surely be a home console as well.
Look, its Jabun from Windwaker (without the lantern)!
