At GDC today, Splatoon and Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami is hosting a special panel. The talk was highlighted by showing prototypes for the first game.
This was very interesting. The idea started with bunnies as the characters. On slide 8, you can clearly see Yoshi and Mario had prototypes as well. The bunnies can still brought in as well as other characters from Nintendo. For example, if Mario came to Splatoon they could create a spin off giving him a new distinct name, abilities and costume. He could look the age of the squids...like a teenage Mario. Like how Baby Mario was a spin off in Yoshi's Island. But FLUDD returns! haha
Soooo happy they went with Squids lol.
The inklings/Squids are cool and can't wait for them in Smash Bros.! ;p
