Callie and Marie will be performing live at Japan Expo in Paris on July 8th, 2016
Stay Fresh! Callie and Marie, the Splatoon inkling pop-divas, will be coming to the West for the first time at Japan Expo. The Paris event set to happen on July 8th, 2016, will feature holographic projections of Callie and Marie just like the previous shows in Japan. If the previous Squid Sisters LIVE! shows are anything to base the Paris show off of, it can be expected to run for about 40 minutes.
The show was announced in the Nintendo UK Twitter post below:
It is actually somewhat surprising that the Squid Sisters will be appearing at a show outside of Japan. Even the most popular holographic Vocaloid pop-star - Hatsune Miku - has only had a handful of shows outside of Japan and East Asia. Vocaloid shows only entered North American markets about 2 years ago, first being featured on The Late Show with David Letterman.

The spread of Vocaloid shows is more understandable, considering their global popularity and their use of an actual human language (i.e.: Japanese). However, Splatoon's inkling language isn't exactly comprehensible. Hopefully the show will see success regardless, so that North American audiences might have a chance of seeing the show.
Do you live in Paris or plan on attending Japan Expo? If so, are you planning on checking out Squid Sisters LIVE?
