So...this whole time I thought "Splatoon" was going to be the name of the game, but it's not. Splatoon is actually a hot new snack that's coming out in May! You gotta be squiddin' me! Now you can have your squid and eat it too! Unless you're a squid, then...maybe don't because that's weird and kinda creepy. Maybe just eat a quesadilla. Yeah... Now you can have your squid and eat it too unless you're a squid then just eat a freakin' quesadilla!

So...bad info. Splatoon is not a hot new snack product. Splatoon is a video game. The interns thought it would be "funny" to send me some "breaking news" because it was "April Fool's Day." Lesson: never trust an intern. Seriously, don't ever.

Mail guy Fred is on a serious roll now, as he's identified yet another new Octarian baddie. This here is a Shielded Twintacle Octotrooper! Now that's an enemy name. Try saying it five times fast. I dare you! (Seriously, try it.) Tryyy iiit. Impossible, right? Yup.

Booyah! Our squid buddies were featured in the latest Nintendo Direct! Sounds like there was some exciting news about a variety of Inkling-related topics, from intense ranked battles to local 1-on-1 Battle Dojo matches to a bunch of other tasty squidbits! Be sure to check it out!

Splatoon amiibo! Splatoooooooooon amiibooooooooooo! I can't even. Looks like there's gonna be three of these beauties, an Inkling boy, an Inkling girl, and an Inkling squid. I'm gonna need at least three of each. One to open, one to keep sealed, and one for..."research purposes." I can not wait. Can't wait!

Splatoon for Wii U - Official Site

I've just gotten word that there's some new footage available on something called the "official website." I feel pretty official here in the lab, but apparently we're not the only squid-news game in town (I guarantee we have better dental insurance, though. Seriously, we have a free in-house dentist here in the lab. You wouldn't believe how much gummy candy and energy drinks these interns put away!). Anyway, this new footage apparently reviews all of the Splatoon information that's been announced so far, so be sure to check it out!

This here is the Splattershot Jr. It's the first weapon new arrivals to Inkopolis get their hands on when getting their feet wet in Turf War. While not the greatest in terms of range or power, this bad boy has excellent rate of fire and solid ink efficiency. As the "Jr." indicates, it's a well-rounded weapon that's just perfect for noobs.

New footage just in! Check it out if you wanna see the Splattershot Jr. in sweet, sweet action. Just because it's great for beginners doesn't mean it's wimpy. In the right hands, it can go toe to toe with any weapon on the market. Don't sleep on it! Maybe "Jr." actually stands for "just right"...

Ranked battle report! Sounds like "ranked battle" is an intense multiplayer mode for Inklings who are super serious about tracking wins and losses and trying to improve their rank. We've also gotten word that the Turf War matches we've been talking a lot about will be officially classified as "regular battles." Ranked or regular, both sound really rawesome to this researcher! Roo hoo!

Splat Zones report! We've gotten some new intel about the ranked battle mode called Splat Zones. Apparently the goal is to splatter set areas, or "zones," with enough ink to gain control (unlike Turf War, in which you're fighting to ink everything in sight!). As the two teams fight for control of a stage's Splat Zones, it sounds like things can get pretty intense! Sounds kinda like us here in lab fighting over the good stapler!

Splatoon amiibo box report! So...check this out. This is kinda crazy. One of our interns discovered this amiibo box off in the corner of Inkopolis plaza! From what we're hearing, using an Inkling amiibo in front of this thing will bring it to life in the game! Apparently each amiibo will offer 20 challenges that will really put your Octo Valley skills to the test! Oh, it's on, amiibo. It. Is. ON!

Splatoon amiibo challenge report! We've just confirmed that completing enough challenges will unlock a special challenge, and if you beat it, the amiibo will reward you with some exclusive in-game gear! Sounds like you can earn different weapons, headgear, and clothing from each Inkling amiibo. Brb gotta go take some deep breaths, this is way too exciting!

Splat Zones exposed! Our IT guy's daughter recently "hacked" into the Inkopolis mainframe and "illegally downloaded" a bunch of new intel about Splat Zones. In this ranked battle mode, players compete to ink specific zones, rather than splattering every last bit of ground with ink like in Turf War. These Splat Zones tend to be in the middle of the multiplayer stages, and teams need to ink the majority of a zone's surface area to gain control!

Each team starts a Splat Zones battle with a 100-second counter. Once a team takes control of all of a stage's zones (each stage can have one or two), its timer will start to count down, and the first team to tick their timer down to zero will claim victory! However, if neither team's counter gets down to zero at the end of five minutes, the team with the lower counter will win.

Once a team has taken control of a zone, they'll need to do everything in their power to defend it! Meanwhile, the other team will need to throw everything they've got at trying to neutralize the zone and seize control for themselves. Focusing the action into these hotly contested areas means there's never a dull moment when you're...IN THE ZONE!

Ranked battle rank report! One of our interns recently dug through the trash cans behind Inkopolis Tower and found some interesting nuggets of info about how ranked battles work (he also found some actual nuggets of chicken!). It sounds like there are nine ranks you can earn, from C- to A+, and this rank will go up or down depending on your wins and losses. So basically, the higher a player's rank, the more of a boss they are (either that, or they're terrible but have their older brother play online for them a lot). Not to worry, though, it sounds like players of a similar rank will be grouped together on the battlefield! I don't know about you guys, but I'm gonna shoot for a solid B minus.

Ranked battle report redux! We've just intercepted a flurry of Jelonzo's text messages (fyi he uses A LOT of emoji) that confirm, without a doubt, that Inklings must earn the right to fight in ranked battles by reaching Level 10. It sounds like the points required to raise one's level are earned in both regular and ranked battles by one's accomplishments and results on the battlefield. So new splatters with their sights set on ranked battles will need to hone their skills first in regular battles and get that level up! (As for me, it's time to level up my sandwich with some of this spicy mayo I found in the office fridge.)

Inkling fashion report! Check out this Inkling girl's outfit. Cool, right? I told you fashion was paramount in Inkopolis! See how her hair color matches both her skirt and gun? That is some serious attention to detail! And look at how blinged-out her weapon is. Sooo cool! I'm suddenly questioning all of my own fashion choices. Maybe it's time to move on from my usual sweatpants and Hawaiian shirt look...

Octodiver report! Look at this doofus. As the name suggests, these suckers can dive into Octarian ink. So when you come across enemy ink in Octo Valley, be careful. One of these dudes could be waiting to pounce! Also, octopi can breathe underwater as far as I know, so...why the snorkel? Man these guys are dorks.

Splatoon Hat StreetPass report! Hey—it's our favorite squid buddy, and he's making an appearance in StreetPass Mii Plaza! I can't wait to get my head on this hat! I mean...this hat on my head! (My Mii's head, that is.) Man, I would definitely buy one of these in real life if I could. Might have to talk to my gramma about knitting me something like this, actually...

Classic Squiffer report! We've got some hot new info on a cool new weapon! This charger-class gun comes equipped with a miniaturized ink compression tank. Apparently the charge time is short, but it still packs a serious punch! Sounds like the range leaves a little to be desired, though. Also, despite the fact that the ink tank looks like a recycled cleaning-spray bottle, we haven't been able to confirm whether or not this weapon is good for attacking household surfaces. I'm guessing not, but who knows... Maybe it can cut grease and shine your kitchen counters in addition to blasting Turf War opponents!

Classic Squiffer exposed! One of our undercover pizza delivery guys recently used his "thumb drives" to "download" this video of the Classic Squiffer into his "pockets." Compared to the Splat Charger, you'll see a noticeable difference here in both charge time and splat range. And while this may not seem like much at first, it can make all the difference when things get crazy on the battlefield! Squiffers unite!

Octosniper report! These suckers are apparently notorious for posting up and blasting powerful ink shots at enemies from long distance. If you find yourself under heavy Octosniper fire, find some cover and then try to advance your position by swimming in your own ink. I'm not sure if I'm a bad enough dude to take these guys down, but I bet some of you folks out there will master the art!

Squid ink report! Remember our little experiment? Well, after a month or so, the color has faded a bit, but there's still not much of a change. It looks like this is gonna take a while... I'd better order another pizza.

Squid ink report redux! I started thinking, hey...squid ink is an oil-based liquid, so does that mean it's also waterproof? Well, I couldn't sleep last night thinking about it. So check it out: I tried spilling a little water on my squid-ink writing, and...nothing happened! These colors don't run! It smelled pretty funky until it dried up, though...

Splatoon bundle report! Omg, you guys. Splatoon is getting a Wii U bundle! And it looks like this sweet baby will only be available at Best Buy and BestBuy.com. I guess I know where I'm stopping on the way home from the lab on May 29th! Booyah! I can pick up some new CDs for my car, too. And some new rechargeable batteries for the squidtrifuge! In addition to the Wii U system and Splatoon, looks like it also comes with Nintendo Land, all for just $299.99! Inkredible! Somebody pinch me! (Except you, giant crab locked up in our research cage. You stay put!)

Splatoon ART CONTEST report! So...turns out our senior squid artist quit like two months ago and didn't tell anyone.
