The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, abbreviated as JAMSTEC, is a Japanese national research institute that has been represented in Splatoon 2 and the Octo Expansion.


In April and May 2018, JAMSTEC and the Japanese Splatoon Twitter account announced a collaboration and cross-promotion called Jamsteeec,[1] which included:

  • The New Life-Forms vs. Advanced Technology Splatfest.[2]
  • Inkopolis' version of JAMSTEC,[3] with a few details:
    • The Oceanic Hard Hat headgear,[4] designed after the real-world JAMSTEC hard hats.
    • The research and deep-earth drilling ship, CHIKYU, was added to the background of the Manta Maria stage.[5]
    • The deep-sea submarine Shinkai 6500 was shown to exist in the background of C11 Abracadabra Station.[6]
      • There was also a post highlighting the fact that the Autobomb was designed after the Shinkai 6500.[7]
  • Videos showing real-life deep sea squids[8] and octopuses,[9] in comparison with Inklings and Octolings.
  • Several posts on the real-life creatures that inspired some of the characters in the Octo Expansion, including C.Q. Cumber (sea pig)[10] and Iso Padre (giant isopod).[11]
  • A free "open day" held on 12 May 2018 at the JAMSTEC headquarters in Yokosuka was promoted on the SplatoonJP Twitter.[12]
    • Splatoon 2 collaboration activities at the event itself, such as presentation of the "research reports", an exhibition stamp rally, photo opportunities, and coloring book illustrations.
