We’re all eagerly awaiting to wrap our tentacles around the Octo Expansion, and while the characters have gotten some focus courtesy of Japan already, it’s about time we see a bit more of the gameplay.


Agent 8’s taking to the skies with this new kind of mission. The Inkjet looks to be infinite, opening the door to other similar challenges and unique stage design that tests your abilities with all this and potentially other special weapons. Speaking of the stage, those link cable laden Game Boys in the background are a nice touch. This might just end up a running theme, with a GameCube having been spotted in an earlier trailer.

You can pre-order the Octo Expansion now for that early Octo gear, and look forward to going underground when it releases this summer.
