Splatoon 2 adds some new tools to the mix.
The footage above was captured with the Switch in docked mode, using a Pro Controller. It was also playable in portable mode also, and reportedly looks very nice indeed.
One of the things you’ll see in the video are the Splat Duellies, a pair of pistols introduced in Splatoon 2. With these weapons equipped you can consume ink to perform a sideways dash by pushing the jump button.
There are several other new weapons and abilities in Splatoon 2, and you’ll also see the dual pistol build make use of a new special ability allowing the player to launch into the sky to rain some justice down from above, hem hem.
The second match uses a different loadout, showing off yet another new ability in Splatoon 2 – a sort of mortar strike.
Splatoon 2 releases in northern summer for Switch. It doesn’t seem to be coming to Wii U, so if you want to keep up with the ink kids you’ll have to upgrade, I guess.
Splatoon 2 wasn’t given a huge amount of time in the spotlight last week but keep your eyes peeled for more information as we approach its release; Nintendo is pretty keen on this one.
