Someone Unknown Put Evil Music In Splatoon, And Nintendo Have No Clue Where It Came From

nintendop splatoon final boss music

Splatoon might just be haunted. Nintendo’s kid friendly, oh so cheerful third person shooter game has a sinister secret. The soundtrack has been “haunted”.

Splatoon is a super happy game that is typically Nintendo—meaning it’s about as harmless as a knife made of butter. But at times the soundtrack holds some surprise nightmarish, evil, twisted, survival-horror style moments that have been scaring the hell out of kids, making them cry and leaving parents wondering why Nintendo would do something so cruel.

And the weirdest thing about it? The developer doesn’t know where those evil sounds came from.

Kids are crying over Splatoon’s evil music. But Nintendo didn’t actually put the music in the game. They have no clue where it came from

Eurogamer asked lead designer Tsubasa Sakaguchi if he knew about those creepy sounds, and he said he had no clue where they came from.

“It’s the first time I’ve heard this!” he says. “I was the one who was in charge of the mechanics and the effects for the final boss. Towards the end, though, I was running out of time so I was asking the staff around me to do things for me—like the staff credits and many other things.”

This is the lead designer speaking. He knows every aspect of the game. But he’s no clue about those sinister sounds.

The lead designer himself is stumped. He’d never heard the music before even though he made the game. So just where the hell did this music come from?!

Taking a wild guess, Sakaguchi says, “Maybe it’s a curse from those other staff. The final boss was one of the last things that we were working on. We were all high on adrenaline. Maybe there’s some element of that in there, of that energy in there. Once I go back to Japan, I’ll play it and have a look.”

Dave Thier at Forbes says, “It’s a little reminiscent of a small-scale version of the famous Lavender Town from Pokemon Blue/Red, a Pokemon graveyard with a decidedly disturbing soundtrack that some claimed was designed specifically to have harm the children playing it.”

So where the hell did these evil sounds come from? It’s an absolute mystery.

Zelda Wii U Is So Close You Can Feel The Master Sword In Your Hands Right Now


GameStop Italy  seem to be privy to some Nintendo inside information. They’ve started advertising Zelda Wii U with a spring date.  Nintendo has so far only confirmed that Zelda Wii U will be arriving in 2015 , but did not specify anything else. In fact, it makes sense for Zelda Wii U to come out at Christmas market , where the company usually reap higher sales. Launching Zelda Wii U  before then could suggest that Nintendo are changing their overall release plans. If Zelda is releasing early, it’s highly likely another game will be pushed back. Which game could that be… it remains to be seen.
