Splatoon 2
« on: February 12, 2017, 08:56:03 PM »


Ok lets try this again :P since there's more info time to make a dedicated thread about it!!

Things we know so far:
Still doesn't have a confirmed release date
There will be a single player campaign much like the first similar length to it will take 2 years after the events of the first game
Amiibo support is in will most likely unlock the same type of things like in previous game
While Miiverse will not be making the jump to the Switch, Splatoons game director has stated they are looking to make their own version of the miiverse for splatoon 2 so we can keep making cool pictures and crazy messages in the lobbies
LAN support you can play with your friends offline supports 8 players
Spectator mode check out this video to see how it will work:



and GLOBAL TEST FIRE IS BACK!!!! happening on the 24-26 of march they'll be showcasing the newer weapons and remixed weapons they will be doing it much like the first test fire with the game active at certain times of day on test fire days kinda wish they would just let us play all day like other betas watch the video below for info and game times!



There's also a translated interview with the game director Hisashi Nogami lots of good info about some of the things i've covered along with talk of the weapon changes and how the specials have been revamped from the ground up http://nintendoeverything.com/splatoon-2-producer-talks-a-ton-about-weapons-mobile-app-usage-graphics-hd-rumble-more/

Looks nice and all,  but I dont like paying for online and since they are going for online only, ill stick to my PS4 and to a lesser extent xbone. Maybe one day ill buy the Switch, but its more of the same. It would be cooler if they let us play with the Octo kids skins.

lol no just no why would they do a test fire on the wii u for a sequel only available on their new system?




I am loving Dualies gotta get my rapid fire on! still getting used to not having a second screen I really miss that feature of the wii u!!! and I keep hitting X as i've been playing nothing but ZELDA ZELDA ZELDA!! and by default the jump button is X but in splatoon X brings up map kinda annoying, the Specials are quite cool dualies get a jetpack/cannon, rollers have this smashdown attack awesome when we wipe on enemys and lay down a ton of paint, splat chargers have a variation of killer wail which you can slowly move around I gotta say splat chargers are not my cup of tea and hard to be competitive in turf wars, splatter shot has the tenta missles I kinda failed at locking on with them lol

Sigh... I wanna try and play #2 but its just not worth buying a system for only 2 games... I also have lost a lot of respect for nintendo dropping support for pretty much everything they make...

https://www.destructoid.com/this-official-splatoon-2-headset-looks-like-a-pain-to-use-439156.phtml

Nintendo has gone full retard with this headset you have to plug your headset into a HUB then connect both your phone and the switch, how drunk were the Nintendo Hardware department when they came up with this?? LOL oh and the cables are short as hell nintendont gonna nintendo please understand, how hard is it to just use 1 cable and long to the switch or Bluetooth because the switch has that capability just saying!!

I heard this is only 1/2 the wires and plugs you need. There are 3 more that connect to the HDMI port, and the AC port on the bottom of the Switch, plus a small satellite dish that connects to the bottom of that black box arrow adapter thing to beam your voice out to space for even better wireless sound!
