Nintendo threw in a possible Easter egg in their trailer for Splatoon 2: Octo, which shows Pearl sporting a tilted crown on her head and Marina rocking what appears to be a bandana with the knot tied at the front. Now, if you’re not here “for the culture," then you may not be aware that their characters in that moment bore a striking resemblance to two iconic photos of Biggie and 2Pac. 

Some people did take note but weren’t sure if the homage to the legendary rappers was intentional. 

Either way, people were definitely here for Pearl and Marina's tribute to Big and Pac. 

While they're at it, Nintendo should throw some more rap-related tributes in future trailers. Like, say, what about putting a "3" on Mario's cap?
