Splatoon Single Player Campaign Confirmed

During today's Nintendo Direct broadcast more details were given about Nintendo's upcoming squid shooter Splatoon. While the core of the game is the 4x4 online multiplayer shooter — revealed at E3 — in which two teams compete to cover the most ground with ink, it has been confirmed that the game also features an offline single player campaign mode.

In the single player campaign your squid-like character will have to face an octopus army who also have an arsenal of ink weaponry. Many different forms of octopus were shown and there appears to be lots of variety in the levels on offer; though previously confirmed, it's pleasing that this offline component is shaping up enough to be shown.

Splatoon is scheduled for a Q2 2015 release. Are you pleased to hear about this single player campaign mode? As always let us know with a comment below.
