Despite making its debut on Nintendo’s underperforming Wii U, Splatoon has become a successful new Nintendo property by all counts, especially in Japan. For quite a while now, there’s been a long running Splatoon manga in Japan’s CoroCoro magazine, which has proven itself to be decently popular in the region. And now with Splatoon 2 due to make its big debut in just a few days, CoroCoro has decided to take advantage and reveal the next step past the manga.

The company has recently announced that it will be producing a Splatoon anime, which will be making its debut next month on 12th August. The story will be based on the manga that came before, and it won’t actually be airing on TV. Rather, episodes of the anime will be posted to CoroCoro’s YouTube channel. Not a whole lot else is known about it at this point, but perhaps if it proves to be popular enough there may be a dub at some point in the future.

What do you think? Will you be watching this? How do you think Splatoon 2 is going to perform? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
