Picking up 2 years after the first game, Splatoon 2 has you doing the same ink-tastic combat where you must splat the most to win (or if not in Turf War, fulfilling the objective the fastest).  Splatoon 2 has new weapons, equipment, and gear.  It will launch on Nintendo Switch this summer.  Everything you love about the Wii U game as been updated to work without a gamepad/touchscreen!

 

There's even gyro aiming motion controls available with the Joy-Cons so even if this is not having IR aiming, I still want to get this game.

I'm Hella CHYPE for Sploogetown 2.

 

I'm absolutely loving the new weapons, powerups, and MOST IMPORTANTLY!! The fucking style of the inklings. Definitely a day one purchase on this one.

 

Hopefully with the paid online service we'll get better connections, faster matchmaking, IN GAME VOICE CHAT somehow, not just in like the lobby. I haven't seen any headset or chat accessories for the Switch so idek how it's going to work, but that's what I'm hoping for.

Just watched a little analysis/commentary of the Splatoon2 trailer by one of the only people I'm subbed to that does Splatoon content, ThatSRB2Dude. It's a decent commentary, partly because this guy is so good at Splatoon, he has a lot of experience with it. He mentioned something that I hadn't noticed or heard anywhere else - all of the specials are replaced. So the new ones we've seen aren't additions, they're replacements. I guess this is how they take care of how to use Inkstrikes without the touch pad. :) Kinda weird that one of the new karts in MK8 DX is an Inkstrike missile, though.

 

 

Give it a look, and enjoy his soothing English voice. Whenever I watch his stuff, he seems so go-with-it and angst-free, it's like playing Splatoon with the anti-Plant. :D

IGN's saying it's an improvement, but not a true sequel... at least based on what little they played so far.

To sell me on this shit, they'd have to include a robust single-player campaign.

 

...either that, or continue to starve me with NO fucking games this year. I can't believe Nintendo sucks so bad now.

Some info from the Splatoon tumblr, which has been kinda quite for a while. Most of it we already know, though, so don't go hunting for many hidden gems:

For those wondering if the Squid Sisters broke up, nope!  Both sisters will be back in Splatoon 2!

Not even the results of the final SplatFest can drive a wedge between them.

The Splatoon Research Lab takes a look at the new Barnacles Sports Club Map coming to Splatoon 2.

Details come out about voice chat.


  • The smartphone application will support voice chat and lobbies. You can invite friends or social media sites to your game!
  • The voice chat and the game will work together. For example, before a private match you can talk to everyone but once the match starts players will be able to only talk to their teams. Furthermore, you can't talk with complete strangers.

 
These come from translated tweets: http://www.nintendol...k_in_splatoon_2
 
I can't get over the sense that I'm smelling the stink of MK8 "voice chat", since it talks about private matches in the tweets. Does that mean that if we're just in regular Turf War or Ranked, and we're in a random lobby with people who are our friends, that we can't use their voice chat to talk? If so, it's worthless.
 
I'm all for not talking to randoms (I mean really, those poor people shouldn't have to listen to Plant raging throughout the entire match), but if all this built-in voice chat is only for private matches, then I'll stay happily parked on Discord.

That "can't talk to strangers" bit is fucking retarded. Even Wii U had that in games like Call of Duty. Fucking unacceptable. Communication is key in many other online games, such as GTA's co-op missions. There's even a trophy based around voice chat.

It is already ridiculous for their 3rd consecutive home console to lack competent online communication capability, but Mintendo better at least have an instant friend (and non-friend) messaging system in place. I swear, these pussies can't do anything right. Guess I'll be getting all my 3rd party shit for my PS4.
