Audio file

Octo Eight-Step is a song performed by Turquoise October.

Description

Octo Eight-Step is essentially an extensive remix of Eight-Legged Advance, but with a very different song structure. The production remains very similar, but instead of the prominent guitar track, it is replaced by reversed samples of the Squid Sisters' City of Color.[1]

It was first heard in the Splatoon 2 - Single Player Trailer, and can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 112 and 225 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively.

Other Versions

Octo Eight-Step (Kettle)

This is just the beginning bit with the flute motifs, but much more muffled and echoey, making it sound like it's being played in the distance. It plays when the camera is near a kettle containing a level with the main track.
