These stages will be randomly chosen throughout the event.

The rock band Wet Floor are the latest sensation in the Inkling world. Their songs are an enticing blend of different genres, and they're especially popular with the kids right now. Let's check out their song "Rip Entry," which you'll hear as background music while battling!

Let's meet the members of Wet Floor.
This guy plays synthesizer and is the group's founder. He's out to restore some indie dignity to Inkopolis's music scene that's lately been taken over by giant pop stars. When it comes to songwriting, he lets others take the initiative. He prefers tinkering with sounds to performing, and the studio is a much more comfortable place for him than the stage.

Wet Floor also has two members that play guitar and provide vocals. The guy on the left is a fan of vintage rock sounds. You can hear it in the sharp, jangly rhythms of his riffs. The girl on the right is a faithful follower of the church of punk rock, and she carves out riffs with a more hunky, bass-heavy sound. These two don't always see eye-to-eye, but when they're in the groove, their two distinct sounds meld into a medley of magical music.

Now let's introduce Wet Floor's rhythm section.
These two bring a fast-paced technical beat to the group's sound that's every bit as crucial as the members who play up front. The guy on bass has a trademark string-slapping style, while the drummer uses her multiple limbs to keep a driving, super-stable backbeat. The friendly rivalry these two share makes the band sizzle with thrilling rhythm.

We just received stunning weapon footage from our fellow field researchers in Japan that illustrate the basics of weapons available in the upcoming Global Testfire. Check them out above before you splat the competition.

We're also excited to present this special weapon footage; apparently all specials in Splatoon 2 are brand-new. Who knew that the Splashdown can be activated mid-Super Jump!? Check out more in these videos.

The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire starts tomorrow at Noon PT.

To help prepare test subjects, we've created these controls & weapon overviews:

Research can be conducted with either a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller or Joy-Con controllers. Or even on-the-go in handheld mode (assuming you have a strong wireless Internet connection).

Also, don't forget that an important step in the scientific method is to make observations. We recommend capturing your findings with the Capture button on the Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, then later sharing it with your peers in the scientific community. When publishing your research, use the octothorp symbol (#) followed by "Splatoon2" or "Testfire."

Good luck to all participants!

When the Testfire begins today, you may be tempted to immediately hop into battle. However, we recommend you take a moment first to adjust the camera setting options to your preference. The included image displays items you can adjust.

We here at Squid Research Lab deeply appreciate that so many people participated in the Testfire last weekend. Thanks to such a fine group of test subjects, our research is making great progress. We can confirm that Splatoon 2 will include many different features than seen in the Testfire, and we look forward to reporting on these continuous findings leading up to the game's launch this summer.

Let's take a moment to look at Gear and its role in the Inkling world. Gear is divided into three types, headgear, clothing, and footwear. From our observations, the gear sold at shops in Inkopolis Square keeps pace with the ever-changing world of squid fashion.

Each piece of gear comes with "gear abilities" that provide a variety of benefits during battle. Using a piece of gear repeatedly will increase the number of abilities it has. Our research has also revealed that gear abilities have changed along with fashion over the last two years, with a number of new abilities joining some time-tested favorites.

It appears that a team of skilled Inklings have the chance to win a trip to E3 2017! We just got the below fax from our top competitive field researcher:

Battlefy is hosting an online Wii U Splatoon tournament.

Anyone ages 18 and up living in the United States with a Wii U console, the Splatoon game and Internet access can participate. The winning team will win a trip to Los Angeles, CA to attend the E3 video game trade show this June and check out what Nintendo has in store.

The qualifying round (Turf War) is on April 22 at 11am PT, but make sure to log in early and click the "Check In" button an hour before tournament time. Once the bracket is seeded, you can set up your qualifying match using Battlefy's Private Match Chat and then proceed to splat your way to hopeful victory.

The top 16 teams in the qualifying round will then move on to the Finals. In the finals, teams will play Turf War, Splat Zones and Tower Control in succession in single elimination best of five play until only two teams remain. The Grand Finals will see the final two teams doing battle in Rainmaker mode to determine the ultimate winner. The Finals will begin on April 29 at 11am PT.

We've managed to learn the name of the young boy with the sea-urchin like head. Everyone, meet "Murch". Apparently, he looks up to Spyke as a role model, and works in the same industry (if not the same organization) as Spyke.

Murch is good with his hands, and he uses those nimble digits to perform a special service he calls "gear scrubbing". This will reset the additional abilities on a piece of gear, returning it to its original state. From what we can tell, gear abilities you've removed from gear will be returned to you as "ability chunks".

Once you collect enough ability chunks you'll be able to use them to fill an empty gear slot with a new ability. Theoretically, this means that repeating Murch's gear scrubbing many times would allow you to mix and match additional gear abilities as you see fit! That would be incredible! It could be that this young man is even more talented than Spyke himself!
