Menu Themes

Super Mario

This theme gives the Super Mario franchise the spotlight. It proudly displays the red backgroud with the Super Mario franchise emblem in the center of it (that is, the mushroom). White "shadows" of the some of Mario cast may pass by on the screen statically. Classic designs of the cast may also pass by in both NES or SNES designs, although some of the playable cast never was featured officially on the NES or SNES. The sound made when highlighting a selection on the menu is same sound as highlighting a mission before starting a Super Mario 64 level. The actual selecting sound is the collecting the coin from Super Mario Bros.

It opens up with a news report from Callie, Marie, Pearl, and Marina in the background.

They also chat about the events after Splatoon 2, wondering what the other fighters like and dislike, the fighters they'd want to root for if the Inklings aren't in the fight, and some other small talk after their report.
