Helper template that transforms the game argument into the shortened S form. For template chaining and code reduction. Will also help us when new game/expansions/formats are created.

If the game is not matched, the default argument is used instead if specified, otherwise "S".


game Named or first positional, optional The game that the cost belongs to. The following values are handled:
  • Octo Expansion -> OE
  • Side Order -> SO
  • Salmon Run -> SR
  • Splatoon -> S
  • Splatoon 1 -> S
  • Splatoon 2 -> S2
  • Splatoon 3 -> S3
  • OE -> OE
  • SO -> SO
  • SR -> SR
  • S -> S
  • S2 -> S2
  • S3 -> S3

If game is not specified, the default argument will be used instead.

default Named or second positional, optional If the game argument was not matched, uses this instead.
  • Defaults to "S".
Typical usage


{{GameShortened|Octo Expansion}} -> OE

Chained in another template that has the game parameter

{{GameShortened|{{{game|}}}}} -> S

Using the default parameter

{{GameShortened|Splatoon 3|S}} -> S3

{{GameShortened|game=Splatoon 2|default=Splatoon}} -> S2
