What appeared to be another existing franchise addition, Splatoon initially presented itself as another De Blob sequel. I was just about to let out another big sigh over Nintendo’s disappointing Digital Event until I gave this trailer a chance. I’m glad I did!
Splatoon looks like Nintendo’s rare breath of fresh air as it takes on a new style of modern (art) warfare. Think of it like a paintball game that went out a bit out of hand and just… layered the entire battlefield. I’m just happy the entire Digital Event didn’t consist of preexisting franchises and childish money grabs. Although the player’s alter form does resemble a Bloop. Maybe Nintendo just can’t let go of certain things.
Take a look at the trailer for something interesting! I think players of both younger and older generations can find solace in this game.
