Splatoon 2 (Summer 2017)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A fun spin would be to have Pearl on team Octoling and Marina on team Inkling, rooting for their best friend to win rather than themselves. Still, this should be a fun Splatfest to see play out. I'm not sure which side I'll pick yet.

That's... I'm not sure you said what you meant to say there. 

Are they "officially" supporting their own races but unofficially cheering for the other?  Or did you mean for each of them to actually be on the team of the other's race?

Whoops. Fixed.

I'm just saying that if they don't want to go down the same route they did with Callie and Marie in the first game, they could opt for a different approach. Pearl rooting for welcoming Octlings into their society, and Marina in support of the Inklings for whatever reason too. There's nothing wrong with playing it straight either, as it appear they're doing, but the twist would help it to remain civil.

lol it's already been datamined and turned into fuel for a "Marina's boobs are evil" twitter war

 

 

also, dunno if I talked about it here but Octo expansion is legit and totally worth the money, even if the secret boss is psychotic.

How does it look on the Male Inkling/Octolings?

Of course people are finding a reason to hate the gear in some way. If I could be honest. It's still a conservative increase considering. If people want to bitch about huge breast sizes on Splatoon characters, then they may as well look at all the NSFW fan art of Marina on e621. Nintendo wouldn't purposely do anything too adult for something centered around fun for kids. Besides, the younger part of the audience will not even notice the breast size increase anyway. It's actually pretty subtle at first glance. You'll have to really look to even notice it. And even then, it's barely noticeable.

It doesn't give the boys moobs, no. And yeah, it's just offense at nothing for attention most likely. I think in datamining groups it's commonplace to want attention due to having information on updates and such before everyone else, and stupid fake controversies are an easy way to get it.

It’s an inky 1-year anniversary! Tomorrow marks one whole year of Splatoon 2, so get celebrating tonight and tomorrow by participating in the Splatfest! Whether you’re Team Squid or Team Octopus, thanks for playing Splatoon 2!

Heads up Inklings! There’s some new amiibo joining the ink-splatting action… This 3-pack, featuring Octoling Boy, Octoling Girl, and Octoling Octopus will be available on 12/7.

 

We also have some new weapons and a returning stage coming soon.

The Nautilus 47 is a new Splatling-type weapon. For the first time in the Splatling category, this weapon allows you to store your charge. Its subdued tin texture and various functions will surely tickle the heart of weapon fanatics.

tumblr_inline_pbq8b1za6u1t4m0j9_1280.png

The Bloblobber is a new Slosher-type weapon. We heard that after the blob law was passed, the Bloblobber was created to lob lawful blob bombs. Four blobs are emitted with each fling, and flow forward and rebound off the ground and walls. Carefully drive your opponents into a corner and throw the blobs for a tactical splat!

Last but not least, Ancho-V Games will soon be making its return as a battle stage. The setting is inside the offices of the developers of the hit-game “Squid Beatz 2”.
Due to an increase in employees and outgrowing their office space, they just renovated a building next door to expand. But for now it seems like it’s being used as a place to battle. Don’t mind the mess!

December for the 3-pack? Damn. They really are going to make us wait for that one. The new weapons are looking rather interesting too. The new splatling gun in particular has my interest. Being able to hold a charge is something that is vital for combat and with the splatling type weapons, this will be a welcome addition for dedicated splatling users.

New weapons and a returning stage for August! :)

Greetings, fellow researchers! It’s time for your monthly update that happens every…uh, month. Yes, that sounds right! The below stage and weapons will release tomorrow evening, July 31, @ 5pm PT.

Ancho-V Games (the hit developers of the addictive Squid Beatz 2) have opened up their office space once again! Inklings and Octolings should be on the lookout for a few renovations to this important location. Hopefully using their office like this won’t delay future development of their games, but it seems like a risk they’re willing to take!

Inspired by a bathtub, the Bloblobber lobs lawful blob bombs (hardly a way to make anyone clean in our opinion). It comes with the Splash Wall to provide cover from enemy attacks and the Ink Storm special to support your teammates.

Splatling fans take note! The Nautilus 47 is the first Splatling that allows you to store your charge while swimming in ink. You can bet your tentacles that sneaky players will use this to great effect. Rounding out the kit is the Point Sensor to help spot opponents, and the Baller special that rolls deep…into enemy territory.

The Light Tetra Dualies are beauties with the same specs as the Dark Tetra Dualies but also come with Sprinklers, (for automatic turf inkage) and the Autobomb Launcher (which is always nice to push forward with).

The Custom Hydra Splatling has the same destructive force as the original, so be careful! This kit is all about defense: Ink Mines and Ink Armor are a potent defensive combination.

Also, here are the maps for Ranked Battle for August:

New Splatfest has been announced!

tumblr_pdmax0vGSh1u3akyno1_1280.jpg

Quote

Greetings from the Squid Research Lab! We’ve just received word that the next Splatfest has been announced! The question this time is which utensil do you think is more useful? Do you stick to your points with a fork? Or do you get the scoop with a spoon? Both utensils have their pros and cons, so please chews carefully! (And sorry…“spork” is not an option.) Pick your preferred utensil and charge into splattle starting 8/24 at 9pm PT!

And as a reminder, the Nintendo Switch Online service will be launching in the second half of September. Please note that Nintendo Switch owners won’t automatically become members when the service starts, so you’ll will need to purchase an individual or family membership in order to avoid disruption of your online play in compatible games. To make sure you don’t miss a minute of online play (including Splatfests!), please visit https://www.nintendo.com/switch/online-service for more info. Terms apply.

I'm joining Team Spoon.

Pearl: YAYERRRRRRR!

Marina: Ugh... Again?!

Pearl: Stick a fork in 'em, we rip spoons outta mouths, stick a cork in 'em! It's a sign of the tines... The finest minds couldn't line these rhymes with the same shine as mines, I'm-

Marina: OMG. SHUT UP ALREADY, PEARL.

Pearl: ...

Marina: ...

Pearl: Jeez, Reena...

Marina: Sorry. I'm just getting sick of losing these things. That's 3 in a row!

Pearl: Aw... It'll be OK, Marina. Just stop losing all the time.

From the evening of 8/31, Starfish Mainstage will be closed due to repair work. During construction, this stage will not be available in Regular, Ranked, and League Battle. The stage will still be playable in Private Battle though. Your understanding is appreciated.

Interesting...

Okay, so I don't like Starfish Mainstage for many reasons... But from that small teaser, these changes are SOOO MUCH better than before. Really, it's a much appreciated change!

If the leading team even so much as pushed forward on the stage, the other team had no hopes of winning. And from the looks of these changes, it's far less likely to happen now.

The release of Splatoon 2’s Ver.4 was just announced! New weapon sets, part of the Kensa Collection, are coming tonight. In addition, Splatfest has been refreshed with new features, and new sub and special weapons are on the way soon. Stay tuned for more info!

These beauties are from the Kensa Collection, a special-ordered line of new weapons based on ones you might recognize. These weapons are painted with monotone designs created by the gear brand Toni Kensa, and include the collection’s signature red laundry clip. This first Kensa Collection will be released today, September 13.

Starting with Ver.4.0.0, Splatfests in Splatoon 2 will be changed significantly. Two new modes, Normal and Pro, will replace the previous Solo and Team modes.

tumblr_inline_pem01cucx31t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

In Normal mode, you can jump into a Splatfest Battle on your own or join up with one to three friends from the same Splatfest team. If you join a match as a group of two or three, random solo players will be matched up to make a group of four.

tumblr_inline_pem01tiskk1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

In this mode, the amount you inked is added to any win bonus you get to determine your clout. If your team is on a win streak, the game will try and match you against teams with a similar streak.

tumblr_inline_pem02tMZhR1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

Moreover, when weapons, gear, or general styles of four players in your team meet certain conditions, a nickname and a matching bonus will be given to your team.

tumblr_inline_pem037gGSi1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

Pro mode is for those who want to go solo and push themselves to the limit. In Pro mode, you’re judged on your Splatfest Power. Raise it high enough and you could make it into the Splatfest Top 100! In this mode, you increase your clout by beating the opposing team. You get more clout for beating teams with a higher Splatfest Power.

tumblr_inline_pem03jDV6o1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

In addition to the above, 10x Battles will be added in both divisions. These are rare matches that will occur if you are lucky, and if you win, your contribution points will be multiplied by 10! And believe or not, there is a rumor that super rare 100x Battles could also occur!

tumblr_inline_pem03xnNUU1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

If your friend wins a 10x Battle or if someone wins a 100x match, teams may appear on the big screen in Inkopolis Square. Also, if you’re in the lobby or during matchmaking, such information will pop up on your game screen like a news flash. Team nicknames are also shown in Regular mode, so you may want to try scoring a cool team name and winning these rare matches for bragging rights!

The final Splatfest results are decided based on three factors: votes, clout from Normal mode players, and clout from Pro mode players.

Even if your side loses the popularity contest, Normal and Pro mode victories can slowly but surely turn the tables! Of course, participants on the winning side will receive slightly more Super Sea Snails as a reward for their victory! Good luck!

Check out these upcoming updates for Splatoon 2! Ver.4.0.0 will be released today, with new Splatfest features and the first Kensa Collection. And Ver.4.1.0 will be released in early October, including a new stage and the second Kensa Collection, with new sub/special combos.

The new stage in early October will be the final one to be added, though we’ll keep adding weapons until December. Also, look forward to more Splatfests until July 2019. We hope that you will continue to enjoy Splatoon 2.

We just heard that as a special offer, Nintendo Account holders with 12-month Nintendo Switch Online memberships (individual or family) will receive a download code for exclusive in-game gear for the Splatoon 2 game.

Fun fact: the in-game jersey is based on the uniform worn by Team Japan, who won the Splatoon 2 World Championship! Our colleague informed us that the jersey has “online” written on the front in Japanese text because they originally won an online tournament!
