Octotune is the second original soundtrack for Splatoon 2, to accompany Splatune 2. It features two discs, the first of which includes music from version 3.0.0 and the Octo Expansion, as well as additional sound effects. The second includes a direct-feed recording of Haicalive at Tokaigi 2018. Also included are lyrics to Off the Hook's songs from the Octo Expansion, an interview with Pearl set in her mansion, notes from Cap'n Cuttlefish, and the dialogue between songs for the concert.[1]

A limited edition print, titled Octotune & Haicalive, includes a Blu-ray of the concert, Splatoon 2 Live in Makuhari -Haicalive-, which uses the same footage featured on Nintendo's YouTube channel in 1080i.[2] Both versions released in Japan on 18 July 2018.

It debuted at #7 on the Oricon Albums Chart and at #5 on the Billboard Japan Hot Albums chart.[3] It sold 19,210 copies during its launch week,[4] with an additional 1,803 copies sold during its third week.[5]

It was later followed by Splatoon 2 Live in Makuhari -Tentalive-.

The Limited Edition Blu-Ray shares the same tracklist as Disc 2.



From the booklet included with Octotune. They are all nonsensical; the Japanese hiragana and katakana simply give the pronunciation. According to a Famitsu interview,[6] the former is used to indicate Pearl's lyrics in Inkling language, whereas the latter is used to indicate Marina's lyrics in Octarian language.

Translation notes

  1. The word used here and throughout the interview is ゲタばこ (getabako), which is a cupboard or a locker used to store shoes before entering the premises.
  2. Maguro is the Japanese word for "tuna", parodying Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch.
  3. Not to be confused with the same-sounding franchise 艦これ, lit. "Fleet Collection". This fictional app is written as 乾これ, lit. "Dried (Foods) Collection".
  4. Referencing the European Gherk-OUT vs. Gherk-IN Splatfest.

アタリメ ヨシオ
New!カラストンビ部隊 司令

フォー!百年ぶりのデスコ[※ 1]じゃ!八号、お誘い感謝するぞィ!

ふむ、あの光の中から現れた二人がテンタクルズ...ヒメ嬢とイイダ嬢、ちぅんかの?ワシのみまもりケータイで調べたんじゃ。最近のメカはすごいのゥー!おぉ、曲が始まったぞィ!ほほぉ、これが祭の時に若者をノリにノせているウルトラ・カラーパルスちぅ曲が!ヒメ嬢の「カモン」からのイイダ嬢のデージェー[※ 2]ソロ!二人、凸凹なようで絶妙な相性で噛み合っておるな。曲想も、イカらしい陽気さの中にタコらしい緻密さもあり、奧深い味わいじゃ。テンタクルズ、のっけからあっぱれじゃ!

寄せては返す波のような節回...この曲はリップル・リフレインとな。こう、掌をヒラヒラさせる踊りが楽しいのう。ヒメ嬢のラップをきちんと聴いたのは今日が初めてじゃが、いや、かなりのものじゃな。タイミングがイナセ[※ 3]というか、胸躍るというか......。この調子で場数を踏んでいけば、やがて大成するであろう。

間髪入れずに始まった次の曲はレッド・ホット・エゴイストちぅんじゃな!何かこう、異国の礼拝のような旋律じゃのゥ。今のヒメ嬢の早口ラップ、実にまーべらす[※ 4]じゃ。若さとは素晴らしいのゥ!その後の絶唱は、こちらの身体もビリビリ震えるようじゃ!イイダ嬢の肩掛けピアノソロも、負けじとアグレッシブじゃな!


フォー!この曲は知っとるぞィ!フルスロットル・テンタクルじゃ!おヌシの奮闘中に爆音で流れたから、よーく憶えておる!それにしても、イイダ嬢は歌唱も圧巻じゃな。ワシの孫たちの民謡とはまたひと味違って、グルーヴィー[※ 5]でソウルフル[※ 6]じゃ!

あれは...ファッ?!噂をすれば孫の一号と二号じゃ!鮮やかなオベベ[※ 7]じゃのゥ...若いころのばあさんいよく似とるわィ。この曲はあさってColorと言うんかの?心に染み入るいい歌詞じゃな。...ヌ?二号が消えて、今度は一号が消えて...そうじゃな、ヒーローとは孤独な存在なんじゃ。ときに八号、ワシは以前、あの二人の曲にラップで参加したこともあるんじゃぞ。すごいじゃろ?


ふむ、テンタクルズが呼び戻されたようじゃ。ぴちぴちギャルがが四人並ぶと壮観じゃのゥ!お客さんのヴォルテージ[※ 8]も最高潮、みんなで大合唱じゃ!このイマ・ヌラネバー!はバトルの定番じゃから、誰でも歌えるんじゃな!ヌ、八号、まさかおヌシも歌えるんか?!...おヌシ、すっかりイカの世界になじんだのゥ。ワシはこの曲を聴くのは初めてじゃが、この疾走するビートに血沸き肉踊るようひゃ!...しかし、あのヒメ嬢は最後まで自由奔放じゃな。


......ときに、ワシは次にいつフィーチャリング[※ 9]されるんじゃろ?

Hm, the two people who appeared out of that light are Off the Hook... Ms. Pearl and Ms. Marina, aren't they? When I was on my cell phone,[translation 1] I looked into them. Machines these days are incredible! Oh, the song started! Hoho, this is Color Pulse, the song that raises the mood for the youth during festivals![translation 2] Ms. Pearl's "Come on" is followed by Ms. Marina's DJ[* 2] solo! The mismatched manner of these two certainly gives them exquisite compatibility with each other. Inside the Inkling-like cheeriness is an Octoling-like precision, leading to an inner flavor of profoundness. From the very beginning, Off the Hook is wonderful!

A verse like the breaking of the waves... this song is called Acid Hues. Here, this hand-fluttering dance is absolutely wonderful. I heard Ms. Pearl's rap clearly for the first time today, and well, it's quite something. Her timing is lively[* 3], or rather, thrilling, maybe... If one can accomplish this tune, it wouldn't be long before they'd make it big, would it?

The next song, Muck Warfare, started in no time at all! What we have here sounds like the melody of a foreign country's prayer song. Ms. Pearl's fast-talking rap right now is indeed marvelous.[* 4] Youth is a wonderful thing! The singing after that is almost electrifying! And Ms. Marina's piano solo is just as aggressive!

Agent 8! While this duo is marvelous, make sure not to overlook the band in the back! As they hit it on the mark with their performance, they bring out the best in the duo! That's a boon of disciplined work! You should work hard, too!

Hoh! I know this song! This is Ebb & Flow! I've remembered it very well since they blasted it during your battle! With that said, Ms. Marina's singing is quite the best part. It's quite different from my grandchildren's popular song, but I think it's groovy[* 5] and soulful[* 6]!

That is... Huh!? Speak of that, those are my grandchildren, Agents 1 and 2! In their glittering outfits[* 7]... They remind me of their grandmother in her youth. Isn't this song called Fresh Start? Its lyrics are heart-etchingly good. ...Huh? Agent 2 disappeared, and now Agent 1's disappeared... Well, this is the loneliness of living as a hero. That reminds me, Agent 8, I once did a rap for a song those two made.[translation 3] Isn't that cool?

Alright! I've been waiting! That heavenly sound, that song of paradise, it's the Calamari Inkantation that everybody knows! I see you can't help but break out into dance either! Since we were young, we used to dance to the "Traditional Calamari Inkantation" at festivals. Oh, look at this! The duo's dance is a modernized version of the festival dance. What? This is a new version of the Calamari Inkantation... Is this the one named Spicy Calamari Inkantation? Huh!? They've added new lyrics to the second verse! The melody's changed... Naturally, with this perfection, this isn't a Calamari Inkantation that shames the "Spicy" in its name!

Hmm, it looks like Off the Hook is back on stage. All four of the energetic girls are lined up for a spectacle! The audience's voltage[* 8] is peaking, and everybody's singing! This is Now or Never, the song that's always in battles, so I guess everyone can sing it! Hey, Agent 8, of course, you can sing it!? ...You've adapted completely to the Inkling world. This is my first time hearing it, and the racing beat makes me feel like my blood is boiling and my flesh is dancing! ...But, even to the end, Ms. Pearl is uncontrollable.

Good gracious, the excitement overwhelmed me for so long, I got all sweaty. The four of them up on stage are loved by so many people, it really seems like a blessing. It makes me want to thank all these people and ask for their continued support for these girls.

...By the way, when will I get to feature[* 9] in something next?

Album Booklet

  • In the album booklet, Callie and Marie's dialogue for MC5 are erroneously printed as if they were said by the other. It also lacks dialogue that was shown during Spicy Calamari Inkantation. However, the booklet includes extra dialogue that was not shown at the concert. This bonus dialogue would not be shown with any form of the "Haicalive" format until Nintendo of America's localization of Haicalive Kyoto Mix.
  • Although it is stated in-game that #$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin and Ebb & Flow (Demo) are solo songs by Pearl and Marina respectively, the booklet lists them both as Off the Hook songs. The tracklistings on vendors' websites do correctly state that they are solo songs.
