Splatoon 2 Announced For Nintendo Switch, Coming 2017

Yes, after being teased in the initial video for the Switch’s reveal, Nintendo finally confirmed what we had all hoped: Splatoon 2 is coming out for the Nintendo Switch in Summer 2017. In a video released (which you can check out below), we got to see new arenas, new fashions, new stages, new weapons such as dual pistols, new characters, and what appears to be an even larger Inkopolis, all with online and local multiplayer.

Considering that the original was a defining new IP for Nintendo, and basically the greatest Wii U game ever, you can imagine that the hype is already massive.

Splatoon 2 will be out this Summer, with frequent updates and new content to follow much like with the original game, so stay tuned for any upcoming details on what may be Nintendo’s biggest sequel.
