Are you ready for some more intense paint action? Splatoon 2 appears to be heading to Nintendo consoles sooner than we all initially thought. In fact, we may even get the title halfway through 2017.
These are courtesy of some news revealed by a retailer in the United Kingdom. Although Nintendo has not yet revealed the official release date for Splatoon 2, the evidence seems to be credible so far. This means the game can be an early addition to the Nintendo Switch family.
Players can once again experience the cooperative team-based action in the game. Fans can get back to equipping their paint guns and wreak colorful havoc in multiple environments. And given the Switch’s new gun controllers, fun may be evolving to the next level in Splatoon 2.
Splatoon 2: Wet, Paint Madness
The leaked release date appears courtesy of UK retailer GAME. Its recent page lists Splatoon 2 may be hitting shelves on August 8. This makes yet another “leakage” from the hit retailer.
The listing so far has not changed, meaning Nintendo may appear pretty serious with this launch date. Regardless, fans may have to wait for Nintendo’s official announcement to be sure. After all, some games still experience being delayed just weeks before its launch.
According to Gaming Bolt, the game takes two years after the first game. The latest entry in the franchise introduces a whole new roster of weapons and gears for fighters. Players can still head online for intense cooperative matches.
However, this option now needs a paid subscription for Nintendo’s online service. Still, it may seem to be a worthy price to pay given Nintendo is upping the ante on its console gaming. Fans can still opt for local multiplayer while playing the game.
Newer Switch Titles?
The news adds the Splatoon sequel to the roster of Nintendo Switch games. It can be recalled that games such as 1-2-Switch and Arms were already teased for the system. The hit paint shooter will be in the leagues of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Kart Odyssey as well.
Excited fans can still try out Nintendo Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In the meantime, they can also wait for Nintendo announcements on some games. Given that the Switch is bound to hit shelves in a few months, announcements will be aplenty in the coming weeks.
