If someone asks me who my favourite Nintendo Protagonist is, they'd expect Mario, Link, or Samus Aran, right? Since Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee is out of the question as i consider them HAL Laboratory Protagonists, I'd say Agent 8, she did more than Agent 3/4, she prevented Inkopolis from facing destruction from a genocidal phone!
Agent 8's gimmick is pulled from Inkling (duh)
Male and female versions of Agent 8 will be available. You can even have her in Splatoon 1's Hero Suit! (Because why not? She isn't called Agent 8 for nothing!)
