Ink-splatting action is back and fresher than ever!
Iconic 4 vs. 4 Turf War battles return. The goal is to splat ink on as much territory as possible, while strategically submerging yourself in your team's colours and blasting your enemies. Some familiar characters return under different circumstances, and new characters are introduced as well. Similar to Splatoon for Wii U, updates will roll out post-launch, adding new content.
New dual-wielding Splat Dualies join the action, complete with a new Dodge Roll move. Mainstays like the Splat Roller and Splat Charger have also been remixed to include new gameplay mechanics and brand-new special weapons. Play using the Joy-Con controllers or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, both of which allow for gyro controls for better aiming and control.
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. You can also compete in frenetic online matches just like before.* An upcoming smart-phone application for the Nintendo Switch system will enhance matchmaking and allow for voice chat options.
Salmon Run, a new four-player co-op mode*, is coming to Splatoon 2! By teaming up with friends, players can take on a part-time job battling the new Salmonid species, which the Squid Research Lab reports might even be more lethal than the Octarians! When players fall in co-op mode, teammates can revive them by inking them on the battlefield.
