You didn't think we wouldn't go without a new topic of discourse did you? Well, not that EVO is over, we can proceed to truly important things.
I can hardly believe it's been three years since the announcement trailer dropped, showing off the first brand new IP from Nintendo since Pikmin, or something ike that. Nobody knew what to think of course, because it wasn't just a brand new IP, but a shooter no less! A genre that Nintendo has literally little to no experience in. Remember The Conduit? That's what I thought.
But now Splatoon 2 has dropped with a couple years of enjoyable memories from Splatoon the first. All those splatfests, all those updates, all those new weapons and maps, all of it kept Splatoon a fresh and relevant property during its lifetime. I had a damn good time pushing my paint roller around, trying to cover as much turf as I could and being at the mercy of the actual long range weapons. But I did ocassionally play the Splatling Gun too. Nothing's more fun than playing king of the hill and constantly raining ink down at a huge volume thanks to the Splatling.
So are you getting it? And equally important, did you play the first Splatoon? Are you excited to get your hands on some new weapons? Fresh threads? I guess you've also tried the test fire too? And do you think you'll be trying the online capabilities on the go? Like at a nearby Starbucks or whatever? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
