Yusuke Amano began working on Splatoon with Hisashi Nogami and Tsubasa Sakaguchi near the end of his work on New Super Mario Bros. 2.

  • Amano later revealed that the game's matchmaking does not pair up players based on level, as many would assume, but rather on play style. For example, players who amass a lot of splats will be put on a team, and players who simply focus on inking turf will be put on another.
