GameTruck Spotlight: Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2

The ink-splatting action is back with Splatoon 2, the recently released game for the Nintendo Switch! In Splatoon 2, the squid-like Inklings are back in a colorful and exciting four-versus-four action shooter game. The sequel retains the objective of Splatoon but offers new weapons and play modes, an improved gaming experience, and enhanced graphics.

What Is Splatoon 2?

Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It was released in July 2017 and is the sequel to Splatoon for Wii U. Splatoon 2 can be played by up to eight players in four-versus-four matches online. Similar to Splatoon, the sequel features characters known as Inklings. Players control the Inklings, using colored ink to cover territory and attack opponents. Players can switch between their humanoid form to use weapons to splatter their opponents and spread ink, and their squid form, which can swim through ink and up walls, hide in their team’s ink, and recharge their ink tank faster.

What’s New in Splatoon 2?

Two years have passed since the release of Splatoon, so you can expect to see fresh features.
