Splatoon 2 Announced
Nintendo announced during the Nintendo Switch event that they announced Splatoon 2, which is set 2 years after the first game and offers up new weapons, abilities and more.
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 winter), and will add new stages, fashions and weapons after launch, as the original game did. Splatoon 2 is scheduled to launch this winter.
