Releasing yesterday that brought the Nintendo Switch eShop to its knees, Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the cult classic Wii U game. Gone are the touch controls of the Wii U original (plus gyroscope) replaced with more traditional controls (and gyroscope is back again) for the sequel. This sequel is set two years after the first game in that the Octarians are trying to invade Inkling-kind again and due to the final Splatfest of the original game, one of the Squid Sisters have gone missing and it's up to you to go find her. One thing hasn't changed: Inklings still love their Turf Wars and Splatfests even as things changed in the two years. New acts and groups appeared and disappeared just a quick.
But today the latest group to rock the Inkling-world is called "Off the Hook" with Inkling Pearl and her partner, Octarian Marina. This group became notable because before this group estabilished, it was unheard of for Octarians and Inklings to get along let alone have fun together. Off the Hook perform the same tasks as the original Squid Sisters did in Splatoon 1 on Wii U.
In multiplayer comes old maps with new twists and new maps. Weapons haven't changed much, but the Specials and perk have been overhauled completely from Splatoon 1. Some old modes have come back with new twists along with new modes. One thing hasn't change is that Splat Zone Turf Wars still have you inking as much turf as you can for your team.
Anyways before the release of the full game, I did record the first Splatfest that was held last Saturday. I have been posting videos here: https://www.youtube....L6RYUFW_i7S_Q8v
The finale will go up tomorrow on my channel. I team up with other CSers for the finale.
In other news, Arby's give their support for Splatoon 2:
Also the second Splatfest was announced for the first weekend in August. It's Mayonnaise vs. Ketchup!
If I had the full game, I'd be Team Mayo all the way.
The Inkbrush roller weapon will be coming tonight as DLC!
Anyways discuss Splatoon 2 here, but please be mindful for single player spoilers!
