If you don't have a Wii U - and let's face it, many of you don't - you can still get a taste of what Splatoon is like, provided you own Minecraft.
Minecraft modders waste no time getting the hottest games and trends into their everything game. Sethbling, one of the community's many talented modders, has created this Splatoon map.
The map supports teams of various sizes, but it's mainly designed for four-on-four combat. It's not perfect, but it's a pretty good representation of Splatoon's main mechanic.
Watch the video demonstration below, though bear in mind it's not in third-person like Splatoon.
