Misconceptions About Splatoon 3

I felt like I needed to make a thread for this since not only there are already misconceptions about the game already out there, I know that there will be more misconceptions coming as not only more information about the game surfaces but also release and post-release misconceptions as well.

The first misconception I saw being spread around is that the upside-down tower seen in the trailer is the Inkopolis Tower. Well, it's actually NOT Inkopolis Tower since, for one, Splatoon 3 doesn't take place in Inkopolis at all and secondly, the tower could be the Eiffel Tower or its replica made during human times, as replicas of famous landmarks exist in other places in real life.

Now here is a bigger one: the removal of genders. Gender wasn't really removed, they only removed the hairstyle and legwear locks for customization so players have even more customization options to choose from. It's just the wording that was removed, plus, none of the games ever explicitly said "Choose a gender", the only change is that the male and female body-types aren't named anymore.

I know that more misconceptions will come up in the future, but these two seem to be the only ones for now.

Here's a new one you've probably heard about: The whole Daft Punk thing. I have pretty much no clue who Daft Punk are (since I don't listen to modern music), but they are definitely not going to be Splatoon 3's idols. They're humans for crying out loud, and even if they're somehow alive in like 2019 Mollusk Era, Nintendo would totally get copyrighted.

Yeah, I never understood why people think that a literal real-world band (one that broke up no less) would appear in Splatoon when the Splatoon team already composes music resembling those made by bands.

There is one where some people think the story mode is at the beginning, but that would be no fun. Most people think you have to complete the story mode to play the rest, and that just diminishes the entire purpose of the Splatoon franchise.

Yeah, I highly doubt the story mode starts as soon as you start the game for the first time. There is always a tutorial and hub area before any of the modes are played.

Nintendo sure knows how to rile up their fanbase, huh? They released one trailer with no actual gameplay or concrete information 2 months ago and that's all it took to root it in fan's minds and prompt discussion.

Anything is subject to change since we just have that trailer to go off of and the game is a minimum of 8 months away, so conceptions of any kind seem a little off to me currently. Speculation is fine of course, but still.
