    I hope this isn't already a feature or else I will feel dumb.

    Wouldn't it be nice to turn the music off every once in a while? I think that would help the game. What do you guys think?

    I think a feature like this would be nice. Would mean we wouldn’t have to deal with people complaining about the music anymore. :rolleyes: I think it should allow us to turn certain songs off instead of just turning the music off altogether, though.

    Eh, I'd like an option to use the Splatoon 1 music instead of the new Splatoon 2 music.

    The music of splatoon is part of what makes the game so special to me, It’s a niche genre that I’ve fallen in love with!

    I think a game without music, just with SFX would just be bland :(

    I want to have the new themes and the old ones playing, because man, there isn’t a single battle theme that I don’t love! (With the exception of Off The Hook’s music...)

    All day.

    Give us the option. A slider even. It doesn’t even have to be an on/off toggle.

    Like every pvp game I’ve gotten into I want to add my own soundtrack without having to sacrifice sound effects. I don’t see it as an issue or any advantage or disadvantage if everyone had the option. At this point if I want my own music I have to mute the game or barely hear the effects.

    What if I want the jaws theme when I’m using ninja squid? I can’t. And that just... won’t do.

    Yes, yes, yes.

    This is one of the most basic features to be expected in just about every game and Splatoon 2 does not have it, and to me that's just plain inexcusable. I can't imagine it'd be hard to program in, so why is it not there?

    It doesn't matter how good the OST is, once you've played and practiced it for hundreds of hours you'll get burned out on the in-game OST eventually. You could listen to your own stuff, but Splatoon 2 won't let you. Either you gotta mute the entire game or have to suffer through Ink Theory for the umpteenth time, or have your own music blend seamlessly with that of the game itself.

    Even outside of muting the ost, there are people who just like to have the OST a little quieter just so they can hear sound cues a little better. Again, Splatoon 2 won't let you.

    Well, that clearly ain’t true for everyone because I never get tired of the music. It’s too good if you ask me.

    Why would anyone answer "no" to this? If you want to hear it, great, keep the volume on. The same applies to voice chat; you don't want to hear people cussing? No one is stopping you from turning it off. Having a sound balance has been a standard feature in games since the 6th console generation, and was still prevalent in the 5th. Even for the first Splatoon, having so sound balance was absurd. Never mind letting you choose what songs to turn on or off, or even better, letting you add your own music.

    I doubt Nintendo will do anything about it in a patch, but people have at least cracked the old Switch firmware...

    Definitely, it would be a good feauture for the competitive people. You could turn it off and focus more on the sounds surrounding you.

    You could hear the Splatling charghing up behind you, or the brush making its first swipes behind you more clearly. It would save the temporarily life of so many kids and squids. It should be done!

    Since the music generally stinks compared to Splat 1. Yes, please.

    That’s actually a good idea. Maybe they could be remixed by Off the Hook or a certain character in the Story Mode.

    Its funny because when recon'ing any stage, you get exactly what you ask for. You just can't have it during a match.

    But yeah, I'd like that option.

    How do we, the player base, get Nintendo to hear our plight? A petition? I don’t think Nintendo reads forums the way Blizz reads forums for feedback.

    Imagine a plea like this where the players aren’t demanding new guns, new stages, new modes, new cosmetics, but a simple alteration to sound/music control so we can play with what they’ve already given us. That’s a girl worth fighting for (Mulan) that isn’t a demand for things I’m sure they’re used to hearing about.

    I wish they added the options for Splat1 music and to choose the music. Sometimes, I really want to listen to “Kraken Up” without having to play Splat1.

    To be honest I’m just sick of the f*&$@; losing music. For some odd reason they were spot on with making the music that plays when you lose make me feel like sh*t. As if losing wasn’t enough that horrible music makes it worse for me. I cannot stand it. It must be psychological because I’ll take the loss but Jesus Christ if I could just mute that loser music. I wish you could altogether just skip out of the match results instantly instead of being made to look at the stats and listen to that god. D*mn. Music.

    Take an example from overwatch. You don’t have to be forced to watch the play of the game whereby the enemy reaper pushes the FU button and you’re the only player on the team that gets killed.

    Why did Nintendo not take what works from other MP games and implement them in their own way? I get they try to be pioneers and veer away from the norm but sometimes it feels like in their process they completely lose sight of some of the aspects of games that come as almost necessary.
