Splatoon 3 fans are already loving the new manta ray character Big Man following today’s game-specific Nintendo Direct.
In case you missed it, Nintendo hosted another Direct today, this time focusing on the upcoming Splatoon sequel. During the 30-minute presentation, we got plenty of takeaways from new gameplay elements, a better look at the Splatoon 3 weapons , and the first look at a number of new and returning characters. One new face that has charmed fans in particular though is Big Man the Manta Ray.
Big Man is just one of the three members of the Splatfest group Deep Cut which is also made up of Frye the eel master and Shiver the shark tamer. Understandably, with a great name like Big Man, and a lovably dorky appearance, this manta ray was always going to be a fan favorite. Below, we’ve included just some examples of the internet reacting to Big Man in a big way.
