Nintendo released another direct video for Splatoon 2. With its release only a few weeks away, it makes sense to share more information…even if it’s done through the “renowned” Squid Research Lab…

Silly/cute antics aside, the video shared a lot of vital information. Whether it was detailing the different modes or showcasing interesting new weapons, there was a lot to like here. It even showed a brief look at the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app. I still don’t like the idea of using an app to talk to my friends. That said, it didn’t look horrible during the video; inviting friends and such seemed simple enough to do.

“Splatoon 2 is a huge, robust sequel to the original Splatoon,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Fans that played and loved the first game will have plenty of new stuff to enjoy, while the game is also a great introduction for players new to the colorful and stylish series.”

Splatoon 2 is launching exclusively on the Switch on July 21st. As always, keep it locked here as we continue to cover this title!
