Squid Sisters at Japan Expo 2016

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

Squid Sisters at Japan Expo 2016 was a virtual live concert that took place at Japan Expo 2016, a convention dedicated to Japanese pop culture in Paris, France on 8 July 2016. It was the first concert to be held outside of Japan.



On 1 June 2016, it was announced that the Squid Sisters would be performing at Japan Expo 2016. Among other Nintendo events at the convention were daily Splatoon tournaments[1] and autograph sessions with art director Seita Inoue and composer Toru Minegishi.[2] It was held on 8 July 2016 at 1:45pm, the same day as the European release of the Callie and Marie amiibo. The concert was supposed to be uploaded online within a few hours of the concert,[3] but technical difficulties delayed the video's release.[4] It was eventually uploaded onto YouTube and Niconico on 12 July 2016, translated by Nintendo of Europe into various languages.

Live musicians


  • Despite sharing the same setlist as the previous concert, there are some differences that makes this concert more unique.
    • Callie greets the audience in French, and not in the Inkling language. This is also the first time where a Splatoon character speaks in a human language.
    • The dialogue shown at this concert is not a direct translation of any previous concert's dialogue. The Inkopolis News broadcast is also unique for the event.
    • The version of Maritime Memory that was performed is the longer version from the concert at Tokaigi 2016.
  • While there is no official number of attendees at the concert, the Karasu stage was said to accommodate a crowd of up to 4,000 in 2016.[5]
