Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch - the sequel to the 2015 Wii U title, Splatoon.

Like its predecessor, players control characters known as inklings, who use colored ink to attack opponents and clear goals. 

Inklings have the ability to alternate between two forms - humanoid form and squid form.

In humanoid form, inklings are able to walk about and fire ink with both their main and/or sub weapons.

Squid form allows players to swim through ink of their own color in order to move quickly and replenish their ink supplies. 

The sequel packs all of the fun from the original game, in addition to new weapons, maps, and modes for players to enjoy on a new platform.

Not sure if I'm the biggest fan of Pearl and Marina vs Callie and Marie 

Pearl is definitely... something :rip:

I don't really like any of the character designs. It all looks like an original XBox game :deadbanana: 

 

I never got in to the first one but I'm hoping I click more with the second. It looks much, much better.

I've never played the first one but this game seems popular. I don't know if I should preorder it or not

It's extremely fun & addicting, IMO

I'm not a huge fan of the offline story mode, but the online Turf Wars and Ranked Battles are amazing

(although the story mode has apparently improved quite a bit this time around)

they're offering a free demo of the game via the e-shop which is playable next Saturday (6-10PM EST) so I highly suggest you try it out!

If you have any interest at all, though, I would definitely urge you to pre-order a copy... It's a pretty hyped-up release

I absolutely can't wait. :duca: I'm thoroughly addicted although I've purposely not played the first one in a few months to get myself even more hyped.

After downloading the demo, I can't get over how ugly this makes Splatoon 1 look. The improvements are immediately noticeable. I can't wait to experience gameplay.

Just made an EU account so I didn't have to wait until 6PM to play :rip: 

So excited :duca:

 

EDIT:

Just finished about an hour ago and was only 5 points away from making it to Ice Cream King :jonny:

Guess I'll try again at 6 :-*
