@Octane Has Nintendo said how they plan to roll out the updates this time? I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up making you pay for maps and modes this time round, perhaps not for everything bu certainly for a fair amount of it.

But I also see this game being huge in Japan and kinda only do alright in the West. Especially based on what I am seeing around the internet, there's no real excitement from people who played it, likely because it's really just Splatoon with new stages and tweaks - nothing new.

@FragRed I doubt that. If they go the same as last time it won't be a complete game for a long time. Besides we will get charged for online this time and I wouldn't be surprised if this games biggest update comes on the other side of that charge.

@FragRed I don't think they have. I'm not against paid DLC provided the base game contains enough content on its own. Mario Kart 8's DLC was pretty good in terms of value, maybe something like that? Although I do wonder how it'll work though, but since DLC in MK8 didn't manage to split the userbase, I'm sure they find a way around that. Anyway, let's not give them ideas! I loved the free updates in Splatoon, so I hope they continue that in Splatoon 2.

Paid DLC maps is usually a really bad idea, and I hope they never do it.

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

@FragRed they said already that will be free updates like Splatoon. They just did not say how they will release them on a sequence/time basis

I am a god on Splatoon. Even the Japanese fear me!

I don't think this has been shared here yet, but here's a link to the Japanese Splatoon 2 presentation.

Love the attitude on these guys, so much more personality.

Lots more great screenshots and footage too. Makes you appreciate what a graphical upgrade it is!

It was shown in one of the Japanese live streams before, but spectator mode has been confirmed!

Along with the 8 members in a private battle, an additional 2 can join as the cameramen. You can switch between players at any time and also view the map. I think it's a great feature from a competitive standpoint. They even mention that one person could leave the map open while the other changes between players and someone commentates over the video which could be posted to the internet.

As mentioned before, up to 8 players can connect wirelessly with the undocked Switch, but you can connect 10 when docked via a wired LAN connection which can be used for competitions much like the Splatoon Koshiens.

@yokokazuo The better news is that the LAN battles do not require an internet connection this time around.

Even if i don't care about this feature since i'm the only one in my zone that plays Splatoon, it really sounds awesome to me on a marketing standpoint. This can be another really good way for pushing Switch and make people interested in it. I'm really happy about it

I love the new music we hear. It's so hype! It's also great that I can finally try out splatoon before deciding to buy it. Also that Splatoon 2 Dab thing is Amazing! I know it's meant to look like a 2 but when I first saw the presentation I thought he was just dabbing but failing miserably! XD

@Eric258 Dabbing has gone too far.

Anyway a demo sounds great, but the six hour-length periods are kind of restrictive, like the Wii U pre-release demos IIRC. And though it will help the Switch's launch feel more crowded, late March is pretty far from the game's summer launch. I hope we see more demos in the intervening months.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

So happy about it! WOW!!! And i love the new musics! Great move by Nintendo on a really good number of aspects!

@Haru17 It hasn't gone far enough!

It looks literally identical in a Twitch stream, but now that I look at the new media, it does look a lot nicer than Splatoon on the Wii U. The ink splatters a lot nicer, with less of the odd straight or rectangular edges I saw in the first game. It also has a much better reflective texture. I wish the UI was a bit more simple and readable given that it's such a busy game, but oh well.

I don't really like competitive multiplayer games — or multiplayer games at all outside of Monster Hunter — but I like the dodge roll and super move nonsense I see in Splatoon 2. The whole thing just looks a lot less mechanically bare than western shooters and has a pleasantly physical look to all of the movements and shots.

I remember the original having a bunch of testfires, even after launch.

Anyway, prepare for humiliating defeat!!!
