Today's Splatoon 3 Direct revealed a whole bunch of new details about the upcoming splatter, including new amiibo and the announcement of a pre-release Splatfest, but it also revealed the new hosts who will introduce the stages when you fire up the game — and this time it's a trio.

Replacing Pearl and Marina from Splatoon 2, Deep Cut is the musical outfit that will be giving you the details once you get past the title screen of the new entry. Continuing the series' trend of musical hosts — with the 'Squid Sisters' Callie and Marie acting as presenters in the first game, Deep Cut is made up of Shiver, Frye, and Big Man.

You can check out the trio performing 'Anarchy Rainbow' in the video at the top of the page, and here's a better look at the new presenters from Nintendo of America's tweet, starting with Shiver:

Deep Cut will have their work cut out for them if they're going to overtake fan-favourites Pearl and Marina in the popularity stakes. But hey, if they can cut down their pre-match jabber — or even make it skippable! — they could well shoot straight to the top of our charts! Update: It looks like "except for special broadcasts" you'll be able to get cracking in Splatsville while you listen to the Deep Cut bulletin. Phew!

Let us know below if you think Deep Cut has what it takes to beat the Squid Sisters and Pearl and Marina.
