We've received a report that Splatoon 2 will be compatible with an upcoming app for smart devices that enhances online play. This app will link with the game and allow you to set a play appointment with your friends and teammates invited through your social media accounts. It also lets you match up with them directly in the game and voice chat with them too.

For example, during a Private Battle, you can voice chat with all of the connected friends when you divide into teams, but once teams are set, voice chat is switched to communication only between teammates in the same team. Also, you cannot communicate with random Inklings you don't know.

In order to use this app, players need to link their Nintendo Account to their Nintendo Switch system and have a smart device capable of in-game voice chat. Online features will require a paid subscription. Data fees may apply. More details will be announced at a later date.

We've just received an image of a small cat-like creature on top of a larger cat-like creature known only as...Judd. Could this young cat be Judd's offspring?! Or perhaps his younger sibling? Or even something more...sinister? MUAHAHA! Nope. Sorry. There's no evidence to support that. I just got carried away. Anyway, according to our information from two years back, Judd was supposedly the squid world's only mammal. Just what happened in the intervening time? We'll spare no effort to solve this mystery!

We've acquired images of some returning legacy weapons we weren't able to show at our recent research presentation, so we've decided to reveal them here! This is a Splatling-type weapon called the Heavy Splatling. The angle of the signature ink barrels has been adjusted to make for easier maintenance, but aside from that it functions just as the original model did.

In the Slosher category, the crowd-favorite Slosher is also making a return in Splatoon 2. The keen-eyed observer may notice that slight cosmetic adjustments have been made to the Slosher's handle and suspension arm. These changes are in line with the cosmetic changes that other legacy weapons have recieved. It may seem a trivial change to some, but we at the Squid Research Lab feel that even the smallest changes must be documented in order to keep up with the ever-changing trends of the Inkling world.

We've gotten a first look inside one of the new stages–Musselforge Fitness. This state of the art work out facility contains a bouldering gym, a regulation-sized pool, and all the treadmills you could ever want. Judging from our research, today's Inklings are foregoing the calisthenics and aerobics for more back-to-basics, iron-puming workouts.

Eureka! We've just discovered a breakthrough in squid-observation technology! In Splatoon 2, a new feature called Private Battle Spectator View will allow up to two non-players to spectate a Private Battle. These two people act as camera operators in order capture all the action. This is, of course, in addition to the 8 players who fight in the Private Battle. Outstanding!

Previously, we've reported that Splatoon 2 will allow up to eight Nintendo Switch systems to connect via local wireless to play Private Battles. In addition to this, a new feature called LAN Play will enable players to connect eight docked systems using a wired LAN setup. This feature allows players to create local Private Battle tournaments without the need for an Internet connection.

If you're willing to put in the work to set up LAN Play, you can also use the Private Battle Spectator View feature by hooking up two additional Nintendo Switch systems. Local wireless play is perfect for your regular gaming get-togethers, but LAN Play is where it's at when you want to organize a serious tournament event with your fellow players.

BREAKING NEWS! A Squid Research Lab special report:

Nintendo Switch owners will soon be able to participate in a special Splatoon 2 preview. A special demo version of Splatoon 2 will be available for download on Nintendo Switch and will allow players to battle against opponents around the world in the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event. It's a way for everyone to investigate the latest in cephalopod warfare months before the game launches!

The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire will give Nintendo Switch owners six chances to play with other owners worldwide during the three-day event. The timing of the event is as follows:

March 24
12-12:59 p.m. PT
8-8:59 p.m. PT

March 25
4-4:59 a.m. PT
12-12:59 p.m. PT
8-8:59 p.m. PT

March 26
4-4:59 a.m. PT

Who's playing those 4 a.m. Pacific Time time slots, anyway? They're preferable to players overseas, or perhaps North American early birds (or night owls?)

All indications are that the content for the Global Testfire will allow players to test four different main weapons, including the new Splat Dualies, as well as remixed versions of the iconic Splat Roller and Splat Charger. Extraordinary!

We look forward to sharing additional findings soon, such as when the demo will be available for download in Nintendo eShop.

Happy Valentine's Day! One of our squid researchers at our HQ in Japan made these amazing traditional Japanese confections called wagashi.

They look positively scrumptious, but I'd feel bad subjecting something so cute to my gastric acid. AAAAAAAAAAAH!

That's called a 360 Big Spin. And this is a backside manual into a kickflip. Skateboard tricks are incredible, but they don't always turn out the way you'd like. That's part of their magic. Unlike the battle-busy Inklings, the jellyfish kids are as chill and relaxed as ever.
