Lock 'em down

Being colour-blind is no laughing matter, especially if you're a keen gamer. Those of us fortunate enough not to suffer from the problem take it for granted just how many games rely on accurate colour perception; such titles are tricky to play if you can't tell one colour from another, and as a result, many colour-blind players find their enjoyment is seriously curtailed.

Thankfully Splatoon is one game that everyone should be able to enjoy, colour-blind or not. The digital manual for the recently-released Global Testfire demo states that the game will showcase a "Colour Lock" mode which restricts the ink colours in the game to certain combinations, thereby helping people who suffer from colour-blindness.

It's a very small thing but proves once again that Nintendo is thinking about everyone when it comes to designing its games. Do you suffer from colour-blindness, and were you concerned that you might not be able to enjoy Splatoon fully as a result? If so, what are your thoughts on this feature?
