I just saw this listed on Amazon as a retail game??? I really loved the trailer and think it'll be an awesome game...for like $15. I cannot see the justification for this being $54.99.

@Mrclaycoat Splatoon shown at E3 was just in development. One of the Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 segments of Splatoon had the developers of the game talking about how they plan to keep developing and improving the game for a full retail release. There is a planned single player campaign, many more maps and possible customization. Plus the developers pointed out that the graphics would be significantly improved by release, which is awesome considering how good they are now! Only early gameplay was shown at E3 but the final product in 2015 should be well worth $60! :)

Look for "Day 2: Splatoon (Part 2)" There is plenty of information in that video, directly from the developers themselves. Check it out here: http://e3.nintendo.com/treehouse/

Is this going to be full retail or an Eshop title? I imagined this and Mario Maker being Eshop exclusives since... they just seemed like it... It might be because of Steel Diver Sub Wars.
