Nintendo's paintballing multiplayer romp, Splatoon, is set to release in the coming months. So the publisher is getting a few more details about the game out there, particularly ones regarding the game's online component.
Players will do battle in the 4v4 Turf War mode, in which teams try and cover the battlefield with as much of their ink as possible. Players will gradually level up and earn currency to help unlock custom skins and in-game perks like faster swimming speed or quicker refill times. Leveling up in Turf War will gradually unlock new game modes for Splatoon, including the territory-based Splat Zones and the online ranking-based Ranked Battle. Maps includes newly-revealed venues like Blackbelly Skatepark, Saltspray Rig, and Walleye Warehouse.
Splatoon is set to release in May on Wii U. For more, check out Andrew's interview from PAX East below.
Ozzie Mejia posted a new article, Splatoon online modes detailed
I'm torn about this game. I've been through different cycles. From not caring, to excited and day one purchase, to now, wondering what the SP is going to be about. I feel it might be tacked on (based on today's info). Not at all what I thought it was going to be - an honest to goodness real SP experience. I think ill play it safe and wait and see what this is about before I take a plunge.
