Hello, YourUsername, I'm DJ Particle, RIAAcidal Lesbian Parodist. I've been video gaming since 1978, the days of the pong consoles (first household console Magnavox Odyssey 4000 [released Aug 1977]). Nintendo fanatic since 1987 and a charter subscriber to Nintendo Power in 1988. I currently own the PS2, Wii (Mark 1 - doubles as a Game Cube), Wii U, New 2DS XL, and Switch (all NA region consoles).

My history with Splatoon is a bit checkered. I got the first game in August 2015, and struggled with the motion and double-stick controls. Intimidated, I put the game on the back burner for almost a year (June 2016). When my partner got her own Wii U and Splatoon, I vowed to conquer my own hubris so I could play with her, and ended up getting thoroughly hooked.

Unfortunately, this meant I missed every Splatfest from the first game save for the final one, and even then, since it was taking place on a weekend I wouldn't be home, I couldn't actually splat in it, so I at least picked up the Splatfest Tee for Team Callie.

To make up for my lack of Splatfest participation in the first game, I bought all three regions of the second game, and have participated in every Splatfest across those regions since release, and Queened out all but one.

I'm more hooked than ever now, and have logged over 2000 hours to date between the three regions of the game. I also have never seen a more welcoming or fun video gaming community than the Splatoon community, and I'm glad to be a part of it. Splat well, squids!

Splatoon 2 Multiregion FAQ

  • What's the easiest way to do this?
    • Import the physical carts from sites like Play-Asia or Offgamers. At that point, it's just plug-and-play, and each version will use its own save file. Easy peasy.
  • I can't wait that long for the mail! Can I get it online from the eShop?
    • Yes, but not with your regular Nintendo account. You will need regional accounts. This is also the only way to import foreign versions of the Octo Expansion
      • a) To make a regional account, it MUST be attached to a different email address than the one you use with your main account. Luckily, there are many common free email services (Google, Yahoo, AOL, etc) you can use. Be sure to label the home region either 'United States', 'Japan', or a Euro-currency EU member country (NOT the UK!! I used Ireland, for example) depending on which version that account will be purchassing. You need one new account for each different region you plan to purchase.
      • b) Unless your PayPal or credit cards are clear to use internationally (most are not), you will need to purchase game time cards in each region. These are usually readily available (and instantly via email) at sites like Play-Asia and Offgamers. Be sure your game cards match the region you specify in the placeholder account, and when you get the code, add it to that account's funds by logging into the eShop using the new account.
      • c) Browse the eShop using the new account, find Splatoon 2, and buy it with your account funds. Let it download and install..
      • d) The upside now is, if you want to import other games via eShop, you already have the account defined!
  • How about after I buy it? Can I at least use my regular Nintendo Account to play the imports? I don't want to remake my friends list.
    • Yes. Once a version of the game is on your Switch, you can play it with your regular Nintendo account.
  • Can the foreign versions read my existing save file at all? I don't want to start back at Level 1.
    • No. Each region's copy has its own save file, so you will have to start back at Level 1 for each new region you buy. There is no way to make it read another region's save file.
  • Can I use SplatNet 2 for all regions?
    • Yes, but SplatNet 2 will always connect to and reflect the stats for the region you most recently logged into. If you want to purchase an item for a particular region's toon, be sure to log into that region of the game before opening SplatNet 2.
  • This sounds really cool! Will I be splatting with international squids/octolings?
    • Rarely. The matching servers are region-agnostic, so unless you're joining overseas people on your friends list, you will still be paired with whoever's available that has the best peer-to-peer connections to you. In most cases, this will still be players from your home region.
  • What about language support? What versions support which languages?
    • NA/AUS: English, Canadian French, Mexican Spanish
    • EU: English, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, Italian, Russian
    • Japan: Japanese
    • NOTE: Whereas the English translations are the same between NA and EU, note that the French and Spanish translations are not, and many item, place, and character names will differ despite the common base language.
  • My family plan includes my regional accounts. Why was I only given E-Shop codes for the special gear for my home region?
    • Nintendo did not take into account that family plans may have people from multiple regions added. This is an oversight from Nintendo that they have yet to fix.
  • Splatfests ended in July. Is there any reason to get other regions of the game now?
    • Yes, at least the JP version, as it has exclusive gear, if you can get your hands on the corresponding CoroCoro magazines or codes. Codes for the special gear can be obtained via eBay. You must be in the JP eShop to use the codes, see above for how to do that.
  • If you have any other questions, ask me on my talk page. :)

Personal Quirks

Sometimes I may refer to certain weapons/stages by different names.

  • Splash-o-matic - I call it the Sharpie Marker (similar to JP name), because just about every other language localization calls it a name based on, well, what it *is* - a fine/sharp marker. Curious why only the English version doesn't refer to that.
  • Sploosh-o-matic - I call it the Bold Marker (its JP name), see above, similar reason.
  • Bloblobber - I call it the Overflosher (its JP name), because for some reason I have trouble saying "Bloblobber".
  • Ultra Stamp - I call it Da Hamma, because that's what it does to us! *heh*
  • Shellendorf Institute - I call it Devon Museum for 2 reasons:
    • 1) That's what the Inkling script says
    • 2) The English language is the only localization that ties the place to Sheldon's family. Since apparently in the original Japanese, it has no such lore connection, I refuse to acknowledge it by its English name.
  • Wahoo World - I call it Woomy World, because Nintendo missed a golden opportunity there. It just feels more natural.

Who is "Bad Cop Callie"?

If you're unfortunate enough to disconnect your way into Splat Jail, headcanon says your toon has to deal with the Squid Sisters interrogating you, with one as "good cop" and one as "bad cop". Unfortunately for all of us, Callie wanted to be the "bad cop"...after all, she's seen it lots of times on TV! *heh* Think of perky Callie TRYING to be the "bad cop", accusing your toon of all sorts of silly impossible shenanigans ("You hacked the map...WITH YOUR MIND!!!"), and mentioning she has "zillions" of evidence against you (MARIE: "Callie, "zillion" isn't a number! *sigh*")...and failing hilariously. Poor Marie can only facepalm in disbelief.
