Good news, everyone: Splatoon will have local multiplayer

SplatoonGood news, everyone: Splatoon will have local multiplayer photo



One of my favorite showings at E3 was Splatoon. It looks so wonderfully simple, yet had a layer of tactical depth that I could really get on board with. But my big concern was that it would have online-only play, and if it didn't catch on with the masses, it would be a ghost town in a matter of weeks.

Thankfully, that isn't going to be the case if you can muster up some friends, because Splatoon has local support for up to two players -- so that's something. Speaking to Game Rant, Nintendo stated that the game will have local multiplayer as well as a single player component.

The local mode is called "one-on-one," and will pit one player with the GamePad against another with a Pro Controller. It's described as more of a "stalking mode," which different from the core online four-on-four mode.

We still have a ways to go before this drops though, since it's scheduled for the first half of 2015.

This Splatoon 60fps trailer is just hnnngh

Splatoon came out of nowhere, and it shot into my most anticipated list of 2015.
