The final two chapters, 6 and 7, of Splatoon 2‘s “Squid Sisters Stories” have finally been updated to the official website! The introduction, prologue, and first chapter were previously released in April, and chapters 2, 3, 4, and 5 were released earlier in May.
For those unfamiliar, the stories follow Callie and Marie and their life after the final Splatfest of the first Splatoon game. This conclusion has finally answered what has become of Callie and why she is not seen in Splatoon 2, the game’s sequel.
You can find the chapters, along with their illustrations, after the break!
The next day found Marie waiting at the station for Callie’s arrival. When the train pulled in, though, Callie wasn’t on board.
“I bet she totally overslept again,” Marie thought as she settled in to wait for the next train.
Callie was not on the next train though, nor the one after that, or the one after that. Night fell and there was still no sign of her.
Marie called Callie’s office and was told she’d headed straight home from work the previous evening.
“She seemed a big flustered, but I figured she was just in a hurry to get back to Calamari County,” Callie’s manager said.
Marie tried their apartment several times, but no one picked up. Marie began to feel panic rising in her chest.
The following morning, Marie cut her trip short and returned to Inkopolis on the first train of the day. She hated to leave her parents so suddenly but couldn’t shake feeling worried about Callie. Plagued by a sense of unease, she spent the whole trip on her phone, searching for some clues as to Callie’s whereabouts. Her efforts failed to turn up anything to calm her fears.
When she arrived in Inkopolis, Marie headed straight for their apartment. The place looked exactly the same as she’d left it. In fact, there was no sign Callie had been home at all since Marie left for her trip. But if she hadn’t come home, where could she have gone? After giving it some thought, Marie got an idea and hurried out of the apartment.
Quick as she could, Marie arrived in Octo Valley. Cap’n Cuttlefish’s shack was completely deserted. The shack itself was undisturbed, but the snow globe that had stood beside it was a shattered wreck-pieces of glass littered the landscape. Callie was nowhere to be found, and the scene failed to offer up any clues. With a heavy heart, Marie made her way back to Inkopolis.
The city was buzzing with unbelievable news. The Great Zapfish had disappeared! It had vanished once before, but reappeared shortly thereafter.
The people of the city consoled each other, saying, “Chill out! It won’t be gone long this time, either!”
Marie alone shivered in trepidation. “Could he possibly be at it again?”
Marie made up her mind to get to the bottom of this.
But if their adversary was who she suspected, this problem would have no quick and easy solution. Cap’n Cuttlefish wasn’t around to help this time. Her worry for Callie overshadowed everything, and before long, the squidizens of Inkopolis would begin to notice Callie’s absence. If Marie were to disappear, too, at a time like this, it would only add to the chaos. But what else could she do?
There was no choice but to find help, and quickly.
Just as Cap’n Cuttlefish had done before, she would need to enlist a brave recruit to help investigate the depths of the Octarians’ underground base. Thanks to her fame, though, Marie stood out like a sore tentacle in Inkopolis. She had to keep the number of people who knew about the new Octarian threat to a minimum. Secrecy and discretion were, after all, of the utmost importance when it came to the operations of the Squidbeak Splatoon.
Suddenly, the conversation she’d had with Callie at Arowana Mall came rushing back to her. Word on the street was that all the freshest Inklings were hanging out and battling for turf in a new part of town. Surely she could find someone there with the perfect blend of talent and bravery this daring task required.
Her mind made up, Marie set her sights on the new center of squid kid culture, Inkopolis Square!
The story continues in Splatoon 2…
