Hi,

My son just completed the Octo DLC and now wants to change his character to Octoling. When he goes to character selection only male and female are there. I already restarted game and console but nothing changes.

Any idea what we are doing wrong?

I am happy to!

1. Did you die when beating the final boss
My son tried the first time and lost his 3 lifes. During the 2nd try he did not die.

2. have you beaten inner agent 3
Not sure about that. But I checked and he managed all 28 levels of the DLC so that should mean he also beat inner agent 3, or is there another way to check?

3. is your switch account linked?
Yes, it is linked to a paid Nintendo account.

4. have you hacked?
No, both game and DLC were purchased, the game in a department store and the DLC via digital purchase in Nintendo store.

5.Have you have done ANYTHING BAD?
Not that I am aware of. The only thing I could remember... we purchased the game somewhen last year and my son made a longer pause to finish it. So there might have been different software versions in between.

I think we did something stupid. We finished the Octo Canyon because we assumed when doing so we get the Octoling. Seems like we have to finish the subway instead. :-(

The game should switch the character to octoling after defeating the final boss, chances are it wasn't beaten yet. That ending sequence is separate from the metro levels and is normally activated by that blender (which should be broken after beating it).
