Splatoon 2: Squid Sisters Stories – Chapter III
As we draw closer to the release of Splatoon 2 (July 21st) on Switch, the official Nintendo website unveils every few days a new chapter in the Squid Sisters Stories. For those of you who are discovering the Splatoon universe with the sequel, Callie & Marie – the “Squid Sisters” – are a fresh Inkling idol group from Inkopolis who hosted the “Inkopolis News” during first season of battles. In Splatoon 2, this fan-favourite group split up shortly after last Splatfest back in September. What happened? We don’t know, and this is what the Squid Sisters Stories are here for.
In this third chapter, Callie tries to spend time with Marie but without luck. Oh and we have the good surprise to see Crusty Sean, the Japanese tiger prawn that owns the shoes store Shrimp Kicks in the Booyah Base. You can read everything below, and here’s a reminder of the previous episodes:
Squid Sisters Stories – Chapter III
One day Callie was awakened by a call on her cell phone—it was her manager. The recording session she had scheduled for the day had been delayed to accommodate a different performer. Callie found herself a bit thrown off by this unexpected break, but was determined to make the most of it.
Looking around the apartment, she saw no sign of Marie, which was odd—she was sure Marie had the day off as well. It was just past eight in the morning, too early for Marie to have gone shopping. Callie decided to get dressed and head out in search of her roommate. Now that she thought about it, Marie had seemed a bit down lately, like there was something on her mind she couldn’t stop thinking about.
Maybe she was just tired from working too hard. Or maybe something had happened to upset her.
“But worrying about her all day won’t fix anything,” Callie thought.
Work had barely given her time to breathe lately—she’d been feeling a bit lost at sea herself. She made up her mind to find Marie and invite her out for a day of much needed relaxation.
Callie found Marie at a café with Crusty Sean. They were seated at a table, chatting away. Perhaps it was because their hometowns were so close to one another that Callie and Marie both found Sean so easy to talk to. Marie had been a bit shy when they had first come to the city, after all. Callie couldn’t remember the last time she’d seen Marie talking so cheerfully with anyone besides her, and she didn’t want to spoil their fun. She decided to head back to the apartment alone.
Callie was making breakfast when Marie came home. Marie looked a bit surprised to see Callie up and about but greeted her friend in stride.
Same old Marie, thought Callie. While they ate, Callie invited Marie to go shopping, and she gladly accepted.
