@Octane I was hoping for a bigger deeper story for Splatoon, but it sounds like it will be similiar to the first game in terms of size of the first game. They really need to add a lot more content right out the gate, and I don't just mean number of maps either.

If it has the same DLC plan as the first game, not really.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I really hope the music in Splatoon 2 will be as good as the music in Splatoon (especially in the campaign).

It'll be interesting to see how Nogami et al try to emulate the community feel of Miiverse without Miiverse. I wish Squidverse every success.

I was also hoping the single player mode would be beefed up too, as it's the part of the game least likely to receive of online updates. Splatoon's single player was great, and I believe the game has the potential to be a brilliant, standalone 3D-Splatformer in its own right, even before getting into the multiplayer.

The chance in fashions is interesting too. I think the new lead song is excellent, so I'm eager to hear more of the soundtrack. The change from pure 90's bubblegum to something slightly edgier and more sophisticated across visual and sound design should hopefully help give the game its own unique character. That and haircuts. The haircuts are groovy, and mean the boys don't have to settle for looking quite so much less cool than the girls this time.

Did I read the thing right and all of the specials will be new?

@jump That's what I heard but it would seem a lot are just different versions of the past ones.

I hope we don't see Splatoon 3 until much later in the console's lifespan. Let's be honest, with Splatoon 1 being a massive success and Splatoon 2 already year-one title instead of being a port, Splatoon 3 is already on the cards before Splatoon 2 is even out. And you know what, fantastic! It really shows how good Nintendo can be with IPs. They can turn a simple idea and make an absolute beast of a game that is a redeeming factor to an unpopular console. Splatoon on a popular console might even become a key-IP to Nintendo

That's all my opinion of course. Just speaking from my developer and gamer instinct.

@Grandpa_Pixel I don't think they will release a 3 on Switch. It's like releasing MK9 later in the console life span, doesn't seem a good move to me. And let's not forget that, as you said, it can become a key IP for Nintendo. Continuity is a major factor in this kind of games

@Grandpa_Pixel Splatoon 3 won't come out on the Switch, it'll be for its successor.

@FGPackers @Octane I would not throw the idea away so easily. We have had from our key IPs multiple situations before

Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks
Link's Awakening and Oracle of Seasons/Ages
Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask
Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess
Fire Emblem Awakening, Fates and Echoes
Mario...nuff said
Pikmin 1 and 2
(just to name a few)

The realm of possibility is there for a Splatoon 3 on the Switch. However what will determine that is there longevity for the Splatoon 2 support. If it lasts only 1-2 years than Splatoon 3 on the Switch is very much on the cards.

@Grandpa_Pixel But we have to consider that Splatoon is based on multiplayer. All games you reported are single player, at least in the major part. By the way i didn't throw the idea away, it just does not seem realistic enough (maybe good?) to me

I could see them milking DLC for Splatoon 2 rather than 3rd entry.

@FGPackers That is true. And I suppose Mario Kart and Smash Bros do only come once in a while.

Splatoon is a very odd situation. You can play most of Mario Kart and Smash Bros alone if you want but Splatoon is the only major-IP that requires online/multiplayer to get the most out of.

Honestly, I hope for Splatoon 3 on the Switch successor. And a wealth of Splatfests, content and single player content added throughout the years

Yeah me too. One thing i'm most curious to discover is how (and if) Splatfests will change
