In Splatoon 2, the world's cutest post-apocalyptic shooter freshens up on a new system with a new hub, new characters, new weapons, new stages, and a new story mode in which you help Marie (who used to have a cousin once, probably) battle the Octarian menace.

A plethora of debugging content was left in the game!
Explore stages forever (or until your battery dies).
Large and small preview images for a map named "fld_kawa00_vss", which would later be released as the Snapper Canal. Various parts are textured with an orange placeholder X mark. An axis pivot is visible in the distance. Additionally, this preview image contains a white rectangle a bit off from the center.
Early preview images for a map named "fld_pillar00_vss", which would later be revealed as the Manta Maria. The boat is (mostly) textured with a blue placeholder X mark.
The rice and bread icons that were used in a splatfest in Splatoon. These are used as dummy images in Splatoon 2.
A dummy splatfest image offering a hearty fight between eggs and omelettes. This face-off has not appeared in Splatoon, or has yet to appear in Splatoon 2. Also, the artstyle doesn't resemble something that would be seen at a Splatoon 2 Splatfest.
Images for the Japanese-exclusive Red Fox / Green Tanuki Maruchan ramen splatfest in Splatoon. These are leftover inside the Splatfest Terminal model.
Compare final versions.
Placeholder ability tickets. Each one has "temporary" written on it in red and white.
"fkd_icon_test". Punk's not dead.
Two fresh test shirt designs can be found in the models named "Clt_TES100" and "Clt_TES101", respectively.

An unused outfit for Salmon Run, clearly meant for testing as evidenced by the "TEST" text on the overalls.

Unused Multiplayer Map Entries
All of the maps from the first game appear in unused data, along with some completely new maps.
|Internal name||English name||Notes|
|Fld_Athletic00_Vss||Camp Triggerfish||Returned on April 24, 2018, to coincide with Version 3.0.|
|Fld_Ditch00_Vss||The Reef||Unused version of the existing map that has since been removed (Fld_Ditch01_Vss is the used version). The Reef was the first map developed for the game, so it's possible this was used in one of the demo versions.|
|Fld_Hiagari00_Vss||Mahi-Mahi Resort||Omitted from early versions of the game.|
|Fld_Kawa00_Vss||Snapper Canal||The aqueduct stage that was seen in the direct wouldn't appear until October 7th, 2017.|
|Fld_Maze00_Vss||Kelp Dome||Returned on September 16th, 2017.|
|Fld_Office00_Vss||Ancho-V Games||Returned on July 12, 2018.|
|Fld_Pillar00_Vss||Manta Maria||Has since been released, though it is unclear if this entry was used for the final map (see note below about Port Mackerel).|
|Fld_Quarry00_Vss||Piranha Pit||Returned on March 30th, 2018.|
|Fld_SkatePark00_Vss||Blackbelly Skatepark||Returned on October 27th, 2017.|
|Fld_UpDown00_Vss||Arowana Mall||Returned on February 2nd, 2018.|
|Fld_Warehouse00_Vss||Walleye Warehouse||Returned on December 15th, 2017.|
It is notable that Port Mackerel's filename uses "01" instead of "00", so these entries may just be for testing.
Present in PreviewWidth_NotInGame.msbt is the string WWWWWWWWWW. This was probably used as a reference by the translators for the maximum width of a text box.
In Shw_Title_00.msbt, Shw_Option_00.msbt, Shw_Thanks_00.msbt, and Shw_WeaponSelect_00.msbt there are strings relating to the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire, which go unused in the final game. In addition, in Tut_GuideMsg_00.msbt, alongside other tutorial strings, there is the string "Try out the controls until the match starts!", which was only used in the Testfire.
According to Message/Revision_[region][language], the main text files have a last revision number of 7429.
In the text data, the Respawn Punisher ability is referred to as "Exorcist".
