Music video

The music video for We're So Back was officially released on 19 March 2024, three days before the start of the Drums vs. Guitar vs. Keyboard Splatfest and Lightly Salted vs. Consommé vs. Salted Seaweed Splatfest.


"We're So Back," Off the Hook's signature opener from their recent world tour, is taking over the Splatsville airwaves. "No one can belt it like Marina, huh?" sighed Pearl. "You better sing along with the 'Oh yeahs'!"

  • The music video of this song was accidentally made public by Nintendo of America on YouTube on 18 March 2024 at around 13:00 UTC, using the video thumbnail and description for Color Pulse (2024)[4][5] and without an announcement by @SplatoonJP or @SplatoonNA on Twitter. This video was removed several hours later at around 16:40 UTC. It was reuploaded with the correct thumbnail and description and announced on Twitter the following day.
  • Off the Hook's performance of We're So Back in Inkopolis Square is the first in-game appearance of Marina's keytar, which had previously only been seen in live performances of Muck Warfare and Anarchy Rainbow. It has a slightly different design compared to its live appearances, with some of the stickers rearranged and its neck being moved to the opposite side of its body.


We're (so) back is a meme phrase said when a previous event perceived as bad seems to have taken a turn for the better; it is commonly said after it's (so) over. The phrases are popular within online streaming culture. It may be meant to serve as a meta reference to the return of Off the Hook proper and the resumption of their Splatfest performances (whereas prior to version 7.0.0 their presence in Splatoon 3 was limited to Damp Socks feat. Off the Hook and Amiibo).
