E3 2014: Splatoon Will Offer Team-Based Ink-Splatting Action For Wii U In 2015

Team Fortress, Nintendo-style?
One of the new titles confirmed by Nintendo during its E3 Digital Event is Splatoon, a 4 on 4 combat title where the objective is to cover as much of the level with your own ink.
It sounds bizarre, but gets even stranger. You can transform into a squid and swin through your own team's ink, allowing you to move faster and hide yourself from your enemies. Splatoon makes use of the Wii U GamePad for aiming, and the game is scheduled for a 2015 launch.
It's possibly not the new IP everyone wanted, but it's encouraging to see Nintendo experimenting with new concepts — what did you think of the footage shown? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
