Inklings are back to splat more ink and claim more turf in the colorful and chaotic 4-on-4 action shooter, Splatoon 2 from Nintendo.
Two years have passed in Inkpolis. Expect a fresh wave of fashion as well as added weapons and gear. Dual wield the Splat Dualies or stick to mainstays like chargers and rollers, both of which have been remixed. Turf War is still the favored sport among Inklings, but they also enjoy ranked battles, taking down Octarians in a robust single-player campaign, and battling enemy Salmonids in 4-player co-op.
Team up in fierce 4-on-4 multiplayer battles to see which team can cover the most turf with ink.
Up to 4 players can team up for co-op fun and defeat waves of enemy Salmonids.
Dual wield the Splat Dualies and avoid getting splatted with the Dodge Roll move. Mainstays like the Splat Roller and Splat Charger have been remixed to include improved gameplay mechanics and special weapons are added.
Local & Online Multiplayer
Compete in local multiplayer Turf War battles, whether in TV mode or tablet mode. Online battles also make a return.
Joy-Con & Pro Controller Support
Play with the Joy-Con controllers or the Pro controller (sold separately), both of which support motion controls for better aiming.
Similar to the Splatoon game for the Wii U gaming console, updates will roll out post-launch, adding content and in-game events.
Smart Device Support
An upcoming smart device app for the Nintendo Switch will allow players to set play appointments with friends and teammates, as well as voice chat with friends during play sessions.
Up to 10 docked systems—eight players and two spectators—can connect via wired LAN (additional accessories required; sold separately). This feature allows players to create local Private Battle tournaments without the need for an internet connection. Local wireless play is for your regular gaming sessions, but LAN Play is for when you want to organize a serious tournament.
Change your Inkling's style with different weapons, headgear, clothes, and shoes. Gear isn't just aesthetic; it offers different boosts in battles.
Compatible with all Splatoon series amiibo figures (sold separately). By tapping these amiibo, the figure's character will appear in the game and befriend players. Befriend an amiibo character and they will remember favorited weapons, gear, outfits, and option settings.
