Description

Claim turf anytime, anywhere, with anyone in Splatoon 2, only on Nintendo Switch. Traditional 4-on-4 turf battles return in this full sequel, along with returning modes, new stages, new fashions, new weapons and much more!

The aim is simple in Turf War: claim as much territory as possible by coating it in your team’s colours. The team with the most turf wins! Transform into a squid to swiftly swim through your team’s ink. Use these talents to scale walls coated in your colours to reach high-up vantage points, lie in wait for unsuspecting players, or cook up devious strategies.

New weapons
New dual-wielding Splat Dualies join the action, complete with a new Roll move that’s great for dodging incoming attacks. Mainstays like the Splat Roller and Splat Charger have also been remixed and all feature brand-new Special weapons.

New mode: Salmon Run
Work with up to three other players to defeat waves of Salmonid and collect the treasured eggs they leave behind in this brand new mode.

Local* and Online Multiplayer**
In a first for the series, compete in local multiplayer Turf War battles, whether in TV mode or on-the-go in handheld or tabletop modes. Up to 10 docked Nintendo Switch consoles – eight players and two spectators – can connect via wired LAN, allowing players to create local Private Battle tournaments without the need for an internet connection. Online battles also make a return.

Single-player mode
One half of the famous Squid Sisters, Callie, has gone missing – and Marie has tasked you with finding her! Use different weapons, like the Splat Roller, Slosher, Splatling or the new Splat Dualies, to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses on your mission to reunite the Squid Sisters!

New ways to play
Play on the TV, in handheld mode or in tabletop mode using the Joy-Con or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (sold separately) and aim your ink using motion controls for accurate aiming!

New Trends
Two years have passed in the world of Splatoon, and a lot has changed. Some familiar characters return under different circumstances, and new characters are introduced as well.

New stages
Brand new stages like Humpback Pump Track and Musselforge Fitness enter the fray.

Fresh Updates
Updates will roll out post-launch, adding new stages, fashions and weapons, as the original game did.

Smart Device Support
An upcoming smart-phone application for the Nintendo Switch system will enhance matchmaking and allow for voice chat options.

*Local multiplayer requires one console and one copy of the software per player.

**Internet connection required during online play. The registration and linkage of Nintendo Account and acceptance of the Nintendo Account Agreement and Privacy Policy are required. Online services require a Nintendo Account. Starting this autumn, some online services will also require a paid subscription. Paid online service availability may be limited based on location.

I'm a sucker for the Squid Kids

Reviewed by on

Every bit as fun as the previous installment and then some.

The mechanics are a combination of the same and better.
The characters and accusation options are broader and more diverse.
The new mode is as fun as it is crazy.
The new special weapons are less powerful than before but just as fun to use.

If you haven't bought this game yet, where have you been?

Splattering game

The Grand second installment of the Splatoon series.
Nintendo's take on the shooter genre and its an absolute blast or should i say splat!
notable things in the game:
customization: want to run around in a miner hat that gives you extra ammunition capacity Splatoon has that.
unique game-play: want too turn into a squid and speed through the arena yep Splatoon has it.
want to shoot other players with metric tons of ink in a variety of colors yes yes yes Splatoon provides.
also has a awesome single player campaign and one of the best multiplayer communities.

final verdict: shoot players with paint, turn into a squid and have a inking good time!

Splatoon 2 Stays Fresh

Reviewed by on

The first game was a blast. Looking back at it to compare it to Splatoon 2, it is apparent that a few more zeros were added to the budget this time. The graphics are crisper and the animations more life like.

Salmon Run is a welcome addition to the online modes. It offers chaotic fun that keeps you wanting more.

Superb

Loved the first Splatoon and love Splatoon 2. The developers took an already great game and made it even better.
