I've been surprised to see the reaction the game got. It looked neat to me during the NDE, but I definitely did not expect the diffuse positive word of mouth I've been seeing. What's surprised me most of all, though, is that the game and concept seem to be igniting imaginations everywhere for fan art, so here are some of my faves. Post (or draw) your own!

ETA: I didn't think I was going to have to say this, but based on a post that's been made I'm going to have to, so: as always, please keep anything NSFW out of this thread.

The ALBW x Splatoon comic is too cute.

Seems like this IP is off to a good start already.

Amazing. It started with zero hype, then turned into one of E3 favorites.

Hoping this game develops quite well.

Heck, even the creator of Squid Girl, Mashiro Anbe, is getting into it:

She needs to be added in the game!

I'd like it if we could keep this thread SFW thanks.

Anyway, I need Ika Musume to be in this. It just feels natural that the creator would like this.

I so desperately want Splatoon to be considered esports, with livestream events and everything.

I'm completely serious. Game looks hype as hell.

EDIT: I also think there needs to be more Splatoon x Kill la Kill fanart.

People are already finding advanced techniques, so maybe it will!

I'm totally up for playing this game competitively if it takes off.

Let's start the Splat00nNetwork.

Seriously, if this is the stuff the newer staff at EAD are making, then Nintendo's future is bright as far as I'm concerned.

I wish he was an assist trophy is Smash. Oh well, maybe Dillon will be promoted to playable in 6 years, and Nomad will take his place as an AT.

Did I miss something with this characters in this? That one image sure looks a lot like Lady Satsuki from Kill La Kill.

I really should have gave this more time at the show. The buzz is insane.

That is Satsuki. It's fan art of her as an Inkling.

That image is a crossover. Satsuki sadly is not in this game.

Anyway, can't believe people have forgotten about best fanart:

This was the first thing I thought of too, the Platoon thing.

Of course, you know when a game is announced and you see new characters and what not, the fanart is going to flow like water.
