Proving that they’ll do what they want, whenever they want, Nintendo just announced in the middle of a weekend night that there will be a “global testfire” for Splatoon 2 from March 24-26 on their new console.
Splatoon 2 will have voice chat. According to Nintendo, it will use “smart-devices and the ability to bring eight Nintendo Switch systems together for eight-person local multiplayer.”
Japan is getting a set of very small collectible Splatoon guns. Cute!
The freshest shooter of the last few years will be making a splash on the Switch, Nintendo announced today. Expect new weapons, new hair styles, and more importantly, new threads for your squid kid. Excellent.
