Today is Splatoon’s very first Anniversary, and Nintendo has decided to celebrate it by making several announcements. First, there was a new Wii U Premium Pack, which was announced a few hours earlier. But it turns out Nintendo had more surprises in store!

SplattiversarySquid Sisters Live Album

Remember the two live performances by the Squid Sisters, at the Game Party Japan in January, and at the NicoNico Choukagi event in April? Did you like them? If yes, you’re in luck: Nintendo announced that a Squid Sisters Live Album called “Splatoon Live in Makuhari – Squid Sister Live” would be released on July 13th in Japan, and would cost 2 700 Yen.

This album will include the full recording of both live perfomances by the Squid Sisters (including their talking to fans), at the Game Party Japan and at the NicoNico Choukagi event. The album will also include the original recording of the two original tracks which debuted during the second live performance:

  • Tokimeki ☆ Bomb Rush (Callie)
  • Sumisoae no Yoru (Marie)

The album also includes the demo version of High-Color Sinker / City of Color, from the Splatune CD (original soundtrack). It will also come with a booklet, label, and jacket designed by the development team, featuring exclusive artworks drawn by Seita Inoue.

Here’s the illustration used for the Splatoon Live in Makuhari – Squid Sister Live live album:

Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2

Today, the Squid Research Lab also announced that the Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2 would be released next month, on June 8th. Unfortunately, we don’t quite know what weapons will be included this time around (though you can see them on the box below), but obviously, more details will be revealed in the upcoming days (including the patchnotes for the update).

Reminder: the CoroCoro collaboration gear will be included in the Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2, though it’s not clear if Europe and North America will also get it.

Famitsu article

But that’s not all! Famitsu also announced that in the next issue (which happens to be a special issue celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the magazine), there will be a special article about the 1st Anniversary of Splatoon, with details about the live album, an in-depth look at the Sheldon’s Pick Vol .1, and even a special artwork of the Squid Sisters.

Here’s the preview from Famitsu magazine:

Tower Records

Earlier today, Tower Records uploaded a rather intiguing commercial… it looks like something will happen there on June 24th. Is it related to the Splatoon Live in Makuhari -Squid Sisters Live- album, coming out in July?

Merchandise

Nintendo also announced some more merchandise, with some t-shirts, armbands, caps, tote bags, towels, badges, and more from EDITMODE (to be released in July):

Our Upcoming Releases page has been updated with the Splatoon Live in Makuhari -Squid Sisters, and the next Software update with the Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2.
