Random: Splatoon 3’s Big Man Has Some Big Fans Online – Nintendo Life

Written by admin

What was the best part of the Splatoon 3 Nintendo Direct yesterday? The Splatfests? The card game? The locker room? Unsurprisingly, it appears to be Deep Cut, the game’s new musical hosts. They proved to be a huge hit despite replacing the Squid Sisters, but one particular member of this trio has stolen the hearts of the internet

Joining the Octoling Shiver and Inkling Frye is one very large manta ray – Big Man. We’ve never seen anyone happier to just exist, really. Big Man is a manta of few words; it seems the only word he can say is “ay”, which is actually a stand-in for every single word imaginable, because then we get a translation of what he’s really conveying.

As one of the game’s three ‘idols’, Big Man will step up every Splatfest to represent one of the three teams. For the first, which comes on August 27, he represents ‘scissors’, which he says are “complicated” and “work your mind”. We think that having no hands does not help, there!

Look, we love him, okay? And it seems almost everyone else goes by Twitter too. As soon as the large manta ray was revealed during yesterday’s Direct, people flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the newest addition to the game

Big Man has proven so popular that he’s even become part of a Twitter trend where fans of something throw the word ‘sweep’ at the end of a hashtag to try and get some trending. #BIGMANSWEEP it is then.

But Big Man has not only won a legion of fans on his debut, but he also has a fairly large fan art following. We don’t blame people – he’s just a big, happy manta ray, and we all need a little more in our lives.

These are just some of our favorite reactions and pieces of art from Big Man, and we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot of them in the coming months and years.

Splatoon 3 is out on September 9, but you can see Big Man in the game as early as August 27 when the Splatfest World Premier hits.
