Splatoon 2 Making a Splash On Nintendo Switch This Summer

One of the biggest moments of Nintendo’s Switch presentation today was the announcement of a sequel to the insanely popular Wii U title Splatoon. Entitled simply Splatoon 2, the game does not yet have a release date, but will include a wide variety of new weapons and maps. In addition to this, like the first game, Splatoon 2 will receive¬†updates to add new content into the game after launch.

More details regarding the game will no doubt come as we move closer to release, but Nintendo did share some information on the game and how it will play.

“Traditional 4-on-4 turf battles return in this full sequel to the original breakout hit game, along with new stages, new fashions and new weapons such as the two-handed Splat Dualies. Players can compete on the TV or on the go. Whether they use the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (sold separately) or Joy-Con, players can aim their ink using gyro controls. Splatoon 2 supports both local and online multiplayer matches. The game will also support voice chat using the new Nintendo Switch smart device app (a free, limited version of the app will be available this summer), and will add new stages, fashions and weapons after launch, as the original game did.”
