Splatoon 2 (スプラトゥーン2 Supuratūn 2) is a third-person shooter developed and published by Nintendo, and the sequel to the Wii U game Splatoon. The game features battles between Inklings, using weaponized ink to cover territory and "splat" opponents. While it was teased on October 20, 2016 during the reveal trailer for the Nintendo Switch game console, Nintendo did not officially confirm this or any other game showcased in the video as being in development at the time.[1][2] The title was officially unveiled on January 13th, 2017 at the Nintendo Switch Presentation in Tokyo, Japan[3] and demos were playable at Switch hands on events. A testfire demo was playable March 24–26, 2017.[4] The game released on July 21, 2017.[5]

Story

The events of the story mode take place two years after the completion of the first game's Hero Mode. Callie and the Great Zapfish have disappeared and Marie recruits the player, designated Agent 4, to storm Octo Canyon in order to search for them. The Squid Sisters Stories mention the snow globe DJ Octavio was imprisoned in is shattered and Cap'n Cuttlefish's shack is smashed. This mode is set in Octo Canyon, a place similar to Octo Valley from the first game.

According to Marie, Cap'n Cuttlefish is on vacation with Agent 3.

Gameplay

Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter game focused on online multiplayer battles, in which eight players are divided into two teams of four. Players have two main forms and may switch between the two at will: their humanoid form, in which they can use weapons to spread ink and splatter opponents, and their squid form, which they can use to swim through ink at great speed and up walls, recharge the player's ink tank faster (while in their own ink), and hide in their team's ink. Players can also utilize Sub Weapons, such as Splat Bombs, and Special Weapons, such as Splashdowns.

In the primary game mode, Turf War, players are awarded points based on the amount of turf (ground) they cover in their team's ink— the team that covers the most territory within three minutes wins the match.

Changes and Additions

Splatoon 2 features both new and revamped stages, weapons (such as the Splat Dualies), special weapons (such as the Splashdown and Inkjet), and gear items, as well as additional character customization in the form of hairstyles and pants. The game also allows for local multiplayer with up to eight people. Certain elements of the Heads-Up Display have also been revamped, showing the weapons each player has and whether their Special Weapons are ready to be used.

Judd is accompanied by a new cat with a smaller, younger and near-identical appearance to Judd's, named Li'l Judd.

Mode Changes

All ranked modes from the original Splatoon returned in Splatoon 2. All three have been changed in at least one way. The Rainmaker shoots large blaster-like exploding shots instead of a large ink tornado. Splat Zones has a new HUD UI that shows how much of the zone is captured. Tower Control now has checkpoints where the tower stops for approximately 5 seconds.

Salmon Run is a new co-op mode, in which players collect Power Eggs and Golden Eggs by defeating Salmonids in order to complete missions.

League Battle is a new online mode replacing Squad Battle, in which teams of two or four battle other teams to gain points in a two hour period.

Private Battles are now available for Local Multiplayer, and a new feature called LAN Play allows docked Switches to play Private Battles on a LAN without an Internet connection.[6] A spectating mode called Private Battle Spectator View has been added for Private Battles only.

Trivia

  • From July 5, to July 17, 2017 Nintendo of Denmark held a competition with fifteen winners of the prize of four tickets to LEGOLAND valid through the 2017 season. The contestants had to mail in the right answer to the question: "Which colorful shooting-game releases on the 21st July [the same year] for the Nintendo Switch?" and write "Sommerkonkurrence" (summer competition) as the topic to info@bergsala.dk. Three options were given: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch, Pokkén Tournament DX, or Splatoon 2. The right answer was Splatoon 2. The competition was concluded on the 17th and the winners was contacted through mail.[7]
    • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch does not exist and Pokkén Tournament DX is scheduled to release September 22, 2017.
