The kids in Splatoon could have been rabbits!

I’m a rabbit now, I’m a squid now

In the latest of Nintendo’s Iwata Asks series, the producer of Splatoon revealed that at one point in development you’d play as a rabbit instead of kids! Perhaps they changed it because “You’re a rabbit now, you’re a kid now” just doesn’t have that pleasing ring to it that creeps into your brain and refuses to leave.

Rabbits are so much cooler than kids, plus I hate kids and I love rabbits. Here is hoping they still make an appearance as unlockable outfits when Splatoon releases next week. I expect we will see tasteful fanart of them soon regardless of their inclusion in the game.
