See and be seen in this bustling city center. It's the place to hang out, gear up, and of course, join the hottest sport in town: Ink battles!
Splatoon's official website

Inkopolis is a large city in Inkadia (also known as Greater Inkopolis) that appears in all three games in the série Splatoon, being the main setting of the first two games and one of the main settings (alongside Splatsville) of the third. Many different species live there, such as Inklings, Octolings, and jellyfish, and it contains locations such as Inkopolis Plaza (the main hub of Splatoon and one of the main hubs of Splatoon 3), Inkopolis Square (the main hub of Splatoon 2 and one of the main hubs of Splatoon 3), and various stages on which battles take place.

History

Inkopolis was created long after Earth had been submerged by rising sea levels and its land-dwelling inhabitants, such as humans, were wiped out. After 12,000 years, octopuses and squids eventually evolved to become land-living creatures and lived together in harmony. However, all that changed when the sea levels rose again. They began fighting over the remaining habitable land in the Great Turf War, causing the Octarians to go into hiding after they lost the war.

  • Inkopolis is connected to Splatsville via a "sophisticated transportation network" that allows Inklings and Octolings to travel to the stages in Greater Inkopolis from Splatsville.[1] Additionally, Hammerhead Bridge connects Greater Inkopolis to the Splatlands.
