The champions of Splatoon Koshien 2017 and owners of some pretty sweet gold Inkling Squid trophies, those who make up Team Dynameu are representing Japan at the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational at E3. To build up the hype, Nintendo has posted a video featuring the team. Let’s meet these “Squid Kids”!


First there’s Wakaruun. The little tidbit of information shared in the video is a Japanese proverb: “What one likes, one will do best.”

Next is Atobaru with an impressive battle stat: “Often achieves 20+ splats per match.” … Ow.

Kakshino is also up, sharing their favorite weapon class: Sloshers.

Last, but not least, is Dynamon. It’s not too hard to guess what his favorite weapon is… We’ll give you three guesses — and the first two don’t count.

Sounds like Team Dynameu could give the other three teams a run for their money, and who knows what other facts we’ll learn about the remaining 12 “Squid Kids”?
