Splatoon 2 is an upcoming team-based third-person shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It is the sequel to the 2015 Wii U title, Splatoon, and is playable by up to eight players in online four-versus-four matches. The game was announced in January 2017, and will be released worldwide in July 2017.Contents
A set of prologue stories to set up the plot, known as the "Squid Sisters Stories", were released on the official website prior to release, detailing what had happened after the end of Splatoon. The story opened approximately nine months after the final Splatfest event of the previous game, in which Marie proved victorious over her fellow Squid Sister, Callie. While the two girls seemed to carry on as normal afterwards, the usually inseparable Squid Sisters began to spend more and more time apart due to their growing solo careers. With this on her mind, Marie began to worry about whether Callie had been negatively affected by the Splatfest result. However, their worries were temporarily forgotten after the two spent an afternoon together. After going out of Inkopolis to see her parents, Marie returned home to discover Callie had gone missing and the Great Zapfish had once again been stolen. Fearing that the evil Octarians were again involved, and knowing that Inkopolis would react badly to the disappearance of Callie, Marie decided to find an Inkling recruit to infiltrate the Octarians' headquarters, retrieve the Great Zapfish, and to discover what happened to Callie.Gameplay See also: Gameplay of Splatoon
Like its predecessor, Splatoon 2 is a multiplayer third-person shooter in which players control characters known as Inklings and use colored ink to attack opponents and clear goals. Inklings can alternate between humanoid form, during which they can fire ink with their weapons, and squid form, which allows them to swim through ink of their own color in order to move quickly and replenish ink supplies. The sequel adds new standard, sub and special weapons to the game, including dual-wield pistols, that allow the player to perform dodge rolls, and jetpacks. Like the previous game, the game features the Turf War modes for Regular Battles, and a rotation of Splat Zones, Tower Control, and Rainmaker modes for Ranked Battles, which are now ranked individually. League Battles allow players to form teams with friends. A new mode, Salmon Run, allows up to four players to team up co-operatively to tackle waves of enemies. The game will once again feature a single-player campaign, Hero Mode, in which the player must battle through various levels fighting the evil Octarians.
Players can play multiplayer online through an internet connection or play locally, although local play requires multiple consoles and copies of the game. The game also features LAN support with a LAN Adapter accessory for local private tournaments. The game will support Amiibo figures, which allow players to store their Inkling's custom look and unlock additional content, and free post-release updates and Splatfest events are also planned.Promotion
Prior to Splatoon 2's official reveal, clips of the game were featured in the announcement trailer for the Nintendo Switch. Its unanticipated appearance led to speculation by the media and public over whether or not the footage shown was that from a port of Splatoon or a sequel. It was also presented in the trailer in a way that promoted the game as an eSport, following investments by Nintendo in Splatoon eSport tournaments in late 2016.
Splatoon 2 was officially unveiled to the public during the Nintendo Switch reveal presentation held in Tokyo on January 13, 2017, where it was announced for release in Q2/Q3 2017. The reveal was accompanied by a trailer featuring the game's new maps and weapons, and an on-stage appearance of producer Hisashi Nogami in-character as a scientist from the Squid Research Lab, a fictional scientific group from the game, which appeared in various promotional material for the original Splatoon.Release
A limited-time global multiplayer demo for the game, known as the "Splatoon 2 Global Testfire", was made available to play in March 2017. A special edition of Nintendo Treehouse Live was streamed during the first session, in which members of the Nintendo Treehouse participated in the demo. Similarly to the demo of the original game, it was only available to play for a specific time period, across six one-hour play sessions in one weekend. Another demo session demonstrating the game's Splatfest events was held on July 15, 2017.
The game is set for release worldwide on July 21, 2017. Neon green and neon pink colored Joy-Con controllers and Splatoon-themed Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers will be released alongside the game in Japan and Europe. A game card-free version, which features a download code inside of a game case instead of a game card, will also be released at retail in Japan, as well as a Switch hardware bundle including a download code for the game.
Like the previous game, Splatoon 2 is set to be continually updated with new free content after launch. Regular updates will continue for around a year after the game's launch, while Splatfests will be held for around two years.Other media
