Splatoon 2 takes a hard stance on the ‘pineapple on pizza’ controversy

New, 44 comments

Marie picks a side

Like the original, Splatoon 2 has a full single-player campaign, this time pitting players against the Octarian menace in the unfamiliar area of Octo Canyon. This time around, rather than being chaperoned through the single-player campaign by Cap’n Cuttlefish, your guide is none other than (former?) Inkling pop star Marie, who helps you on your quest to find the location of her missing cousin Callie.

By speaking to Marie in the Octo Canyon overworld, she’ll share tips on how to complete your mission, her thoughts on the Octarian threat and more. Talk to her too much, though, and she’ll start muttering personal thoughts under her breath, including this gem:

The line itself is a little vague: Is Marie fantasizing about a future where pineapple on pizza simply doesn’t exist? Could she be foreshadowing a future Splatfest? It’s open to interpretation, but what isn’t ambiguous is this: Marie prefers her pizza pinapple-free. Noted!

Splatoon 2 will be released July 21 on Nintendo Switch. For more Splatoon 2 coverage, check out this pun-laden boss battle from the game’s first world.
