Splatoon may be Nintendo’s squid game that asks you to jump around levels splatting up the place in competitive shooter fashion, but a big part of the series’ charm is in the characters and world that the Japanese giant has built. And part of this is the mascots that take a central role in each game, and the Splatoon 3 idols are the newest cast of characters to do this.
Whether you grab your Nintendo Switch and boot up Splatoon 3 wanting to play its single player campaign, or you fancy some multiplayer antics like flopping around and mashing the booyah button after splatting your enemies, you’ll want to grab the day’s bulletin information from the new Splatoon 3 idols so you know what’s going on all around Splatsville and the surrounding area.
Below, you’ll find everything we know about the series’ latest newscasters, who they are, and what they’re bringing to the table this time around.
Splatoon 3 idols
The new Splatoon 3 idols are Frye, Shiver, and Big Man. The trio are known as ‘Deep Cut’ and host the Splatsville news program, Anarchy Splatcast. This news show provides information on the battle stage rotation and other handy news bulletins, such as announcing Splatfests.
Frye, Shiver, and Big Man are the newest idols to turn up in the Splatoon series and take the role that Callie and Marie did in the original Splatoon, and they also replace Splatoon 2’s Marina and Pearl.
