One of Splatoon 2’s freshest additions was the musical duo of Off the Hook, serving as announcers and color commentary every time you booted up the game. We haven’t seen hide or hair of Pearl and Marina since Splatoon 3 was announced, though, leading us all to wonder where they went. And the answer is pretty simple: they got a new gig.
You’re listening to “Candy-Coated Rocks,” the latest from Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook. Our audio anthropologist says Marina’s subtle piano work wraps around the guitar like an eel wrapping itself around whatever eels wrap themselves around (she’s not an eel scientist). pic.twitter.com/bQEr4Aor16

Yes, another fictionalized music act has joined the world of Splatoon, this one called “Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook.” Their musical styling seems punk rock in nature, both Pearl and Marina lending their cephalopodal voices to the driving rock ‘n’ roll. No word yet on whether or not Pearl and Marina will have a wider function in Splatoon 3 beyond flavorful musicians on some track, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Splatoon 3 launches September 9th.
