I can't wait for the "fanart" of Spaltoon

If you're referring to a certain rule, that has already happen. People did it within an hour it was first announced at E3. How do I know this? Youtube comments, that's how.

Felt it'd be kind of alien to see the Japanese ad used for a western audience since it really doesn't tell us much at all about the game. I'm not sure it's a good advert to have. The second and third Japanese ads were a bit better and although this one is incredibly stylish and shows Nintendo's dedication in pushing it in Japan, I'm not sure of the effectiveness of it over here, particularly for a new IP on a console that isn't performing that well.

As cringey as the NA ads are (well, only the second one really when you get down to it), they're only running on kids channels while the JP/EU ads are bound to see more general circulation. The former at least do a bit of a clearer job in trying to telegraph to it's audience what the game is and isn't beyond what you usually see on Nick and CN these days. Meanwhile you'd be forgiven for assuming that the first Japanese Splatoon ad is a commercial for one of those Canon printers.

If they threw some clips from a few multiplayer games in that UK add it'd be perfect I think. I like the idea, but it needs to convey that it's a fun shooting game more. Especially when you're running the ad on TV to a non enthusiast audience.

They're just cringeworthy and awkward to listen to. Ultimately they're not bad ads and they're clearly aimed at the younger demographic. But still. Bleh.

 

 

Anybody know if the game will support the pro controller for player 1?

I'm pretty sure they confirmed other control methods, yes.

Barely Understandable GameXplain guy confirms otherwise:

Not really surprising, considering the gamepad screen is pretty much required for online multiplayer.

Not really. You lose the map and the ability to super jump. That's hardly game-breaking. Stuff that could "easily" be moved. Easily in quotes because I assume it's probably not easy.
