Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

Recommended Posts

The European results were very similar. I was going to vote ketchup initially, but changed my mind and went mayo. Ketchup is better on chips, although after thinking about it... that's all ketchup is good for. And really, I'd rather just have salt on chips than any kind of condiment. Mayo is infinitely more versatile in the long haul. Hope I get to side with Marina next time though. So far I've picked the least popular choice and sided with Pearl on both issues.

Thanks, Ninty. You just HAD to announce the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle right after I give up hope of you releasing it in the US and buy a standard Switch.

Oh well. I wasn't going to wait till September to play Sonic Mania, anyway.

We've got a new Map, called Manta Maria, for Regular Multiplayer, a new Map for Salmon Run, called Lost Outpost, and a new Special, called the Bubble Blower.

We learned that on Friday evening, a new stage will be added to the mix. The Manta Maria is a large sailboat moored at a harbor near Inkopolis, and it will soon be the site of many fierce ink battles. The towering masts and nets in the center of the stage will likely be a key area of conflict.

We’ve noticed that Inklings often choose to do battle on or near bodies of water, even though their bodies are incompatible with water. It could be that they revel in the danger of it, but more research is needed on this subject.

Breaking news! An update to the Splatoon 2 game will be released this evening: Version 1.2.0. For details, please visit this page.

One of the key updates is that Grizzco Industries has apparently established a new location for its Salmon Run operation. This location is known as Lost Outpost. It appears to be an abandoned settlement near a coastal region.

You can use the walls of the main structure to evade Salmonid attacks, but the walls will also block your line of sight. You’ll need to be even more vigilant in watching your teammates’ backs.

This stage will be available via The Shoal for local multiplayer later this evening, as well as rotated into upcoming online work-shifts.

Here are the changes in the 1.2.0 Update:

Quote

Version 1.2.0

  • Changes to Player Ranking
    • Fixed an issue where player rank would change slightly despite a message displaying that stated player rank would not change when other players disconnected early on in a match.
  • Changes to Spectator Mode
    • When spectating from a player’s viewpoint, opposing team player names will no longer display unless ZL is pressed.
    • When spectating from a player’s viewpoint in Rainmaker mode, the on-screen warnings “DON’T RETREAT!” and “Rainmaker-Free Zone!” will now be displayed.
    • When spectating from a player’s viewpoint, the on-screen ink border that indicates the player is taking damage will now be displayed.
    • Fixed an issue where, when a matches ended while spectating from a Bravo team player’s viewpoint the turf map results were mistakenly displayed from Bravo team’s perspective, despite other results being displayed from Alpha team’s perspective.
    • Fixed a graphical issue affecting player appearance when standing in the zones in Splat Zones mode.
  • Changes to Salmon Run
    • The new stage “Lost Outpost” is now available when playing Salmon Run via local wireless at The Shoal.
    • 21 weapons have been added to the selection of those available when playing Salmon Run at The Shoal.
    • Flyfish can now be defeated by using a Splashdown special on their launchers.
    • Fixed an issue where direct hits on a Stinger Boss Salmonid from either a Blaster or shots fired while using the Ink Jet special did not deal the added damage of their shots exploding, and only destroyed one level of the towering enemy.
    • Fixed an issue where Steelhead Boss Salmonids were not exploding with the player team’s ink color after being defeated by a Stingray special.
    • Fixed an issue where destroying one of the Mothership Boss Salmonid’s coolers immediately after it appeared would cause an invulnerable cooler to appear on the enemy on the screens of other players.
    • Fixed an issue causing players to occasionally clip into stage objects in Marooner’s Bay.
    • Fixed an issue where playing “With Friends” repeatedly would allow random players to join the group before selecting “Recruit crew members”.

      Weapon Adjustment

    • Stopped a sound effect that indicated damage dealt when hitting invulnerable opponents descending to the ground after activating their Splashdown special.
    • Fixed an issue causing players hiding behind a Splat Brella to not appear when being targeted by a Sting Ray special or the Thermal Ink or Haunt abilities.
    • Fixed an issue where opponents were not being damaged when run into with Roller or Brush weapons while standing on uninkable sloping surfaces.
    • Inking the trees growing in The Reef and Inkblot Art Academy stages will no longer earn points or fill the special gauge.
    • Fixed an issue occurring at specific points in Inkblot Art Academy where players returning to the point of activation after using the Inkjet special or landing after executing a Super Jump would occasionally fall through the stage.
    • Fixed an issue occurring in Starfish Mainstage where specific areas would not appear to be inked on the turf map after they had been inked during play.
    • Fixed an issue occurring in Sturgeon Shipyard where players would occasionally fall through the stage.
    • Fixed an issue occurring in Port Mackerel where inking the top of an uninkable container near the center of the map earned a small amount of points and filled the special gauge slightly.

    • Adjusted the path of the tower in Tower Control mode in Port Mackerel to fix an issue where players caught between the tower’s pillar and a stage object when the tower entered a narrow space appeared to be shaking.

Some official Artwork for the Flight VS Invisibility Splatfest

tumblr_oviejdFHEW1u3akyno1_1280.jpg

Quote

It’s a superpowered Splatfest this week in Splatoon 2! Which team will reign supreme? Let’s take a look.

Team Flight gets to save a bunch of money on plane tickets and you never have to sit in traffic again! Invisibility has its perks too though. You’d make a pretty great spy, being able to listen in on secret conversations, and skipping lines would be a breeze!

Of course, there’s only one way to settle this argument, and that’s by inking up your opponents on the splattlefield this weekend! Splatfest kicks off Friday 9/1 at 9PM PT and ends Saturday 9/2 at 9PM PT. 

May the best superpower team win!

Pearl: Flight rules! We shine like bright jewels, with the right tools to smite fools!

Marina: Are you seriously going to write raps for all of your victory speeches?

Pearl: Write raps? Nah. These rhymes come straight off the dome. Bahaha! I bet you wish you were invisible right now, huh?

Marina: ...

Here's a recap of information revealed on the English Tumblr and the Nintendo Direct

tumblr_ow89jzHZAm1u3akyno1_1280.png

Quote

We received an urgent notification from Grizzco Industries:

“Due to…uh….tentacle difficulties, the weapons for the Salmon Run shift that starts Friday, September 15th at 5PM PT will be unknown until you clock in. And also, one of my personal belongings was accidentally mixed in to the weapon pool. If you happen to come across it, don’t even think about stealing it or go blabbing to the media about it. Failure to comply is grounds for immediate termination.”

tumblr_ow8vgg1k0r1u3akyno1_540.jpgtumblr_ow8vgg1k0r1u3akyno2_400.jpgtumblr_ow8vgg1k0r1u3akyno3_400.jpg

Quote

Do you have the sudden urge to fight under a large glass dome? Although this is a very specific (and peculiar) urge, Friday’s stage update can help.

The popular Kelp Dome stage from the original Splatoon game is making a comeback. Our researchers have discovered some fresh twists from the first game, such as extra grates to slip through and a bit of added turf on each side. Be careful on the catwalks – there’s no place to hide up there! The Kelp Dome stage will be available to play Friday evening.

We also have received some details on an upcoming new stage called Snapper Canal. In this stage, a river is running right down the middle!

The key to victory may be figuring out how to break into the central area and push through to the other team’s base.

tumblr_ow8vrx1bLt1u3akyno1_540.jpgtumblr_ow8vrx1bLt1u3akyno2_400.jpgtumblr_ow8vrx1bLt1u3akyno3_400.jpg

Quote

It appears a new Brella weapon, called the Tenta Brella, will also be available soon.

It’s sort of like a regular umbrella, but it kinda looks like a big camping tent, capable of guarding over a large area. We will continue to research this weapon, and marshmallows and hot dogs may be involved.

The Next US Splatfest has been announced!

tumblr_oxesilhlE31u3akyno1_1280.jpg

Quote

October is here and that means it’s time for a spooky Splatfest! Will you sink your teeth into Team Vampire or have a howling good time with Team Werewolf? Or maybe you’re a fan of fangs? Oh wait, they both have fangs. My, this is going to be a tough one!

Splatfest kicks off Friday, October 13th at 9PM PT!

Also a new Map and Weapon will be added tonight!

tumblr_oxcz6zhoae1u3akyno1_540.jpgtumblr_oxcz6zhoae1u3akyno3_1280.jpgtumblr_oxcz6zhoae1u3akyno2_1280.jpgtumblr_oxcz6zhoae1u3akyno4_1280.jpg

Quote

We just heard that tomorrow at 7 AM PT, October 6th, a new stage named Snapper Canal will be added to the rotation!

Battles will take place on a riverbed that’s under construction. Try not to blindly rush in – it’s easy to fall into the central waterway if you’re not paying attention. The ground is also lower near the water, so watch out for foes with long range weapons on the platforms above. The key will be finding out how to successfully cross the water and continue the fight on the other side. There may be some snappy comebacks during these fights, so be prepared to make some snap decisions!

Reports are in that a new Charger will hit Ammo Knights tonight. The Bamboozler 14 Mk I has a biodegradable look to it: we hear that it’s a tribute to a legendary squid squad leader (a leader who must have been very fearsome indeed!). Because of its unique design, this weapon can’t actually store a charge…but it does have a good rate of fire and decent mobility when fully charged. The kit also comes with Curling Bombs and Tenta Missiles to round things out.

Hopefully these findings will help your own Inkling research.
