Nintendo’s new First Party shooter Splatoon has been the talk of the town ever since it debuted last year at E3. Slowly but surely, we’ve been learning about the game and how it plays. Recently, Nintendo showcased the newest addition to the game in the form of Splat Zones, a multiplayer mode similar to King of the Hill.
The focus of this mode is for your team to fill a specified location with your color ink. The more color of your ink in the space, the more points you get. You can capture a point by completely filling the area with your designated ink which also gives the opposing team a time penalty. First team to reach the point limit wins. It’s a neat twist to an old shooter formula that can really mix up how you play.
Nintendo also showed off the first glimpses of Splatoon’s single player campaign, which tasks your Ikling to do battle with Octarians. Although most of the coverage of Splatoon has been focused on the multiplayer aspect, it’s nice to see Single Player being represented.
Playing similarly to the multiplayer, you’re tasked with defeating all of the enemies in your path to get to the end of the level. To break up the normal shooter formula, Splatoon has tons for you to do, whether it be using your ink powers to climb towers, ride along rails, expand cubes to platform on and much more. What seemed like an after thought to the multiplayer focus is looking to be an interesting story mode filled with that special Nintendo charm.
Splatoon is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated games for the Wii U this year and is set to release sometime this year.
