Splatoon Minecraft

It seems like there's a mod for just about anything in Minecraft. The extremely open ended and modular nature of the core game leaves the door wide open for just about any type of game to be created within it, from platformers to shooters to racers. Granted, there's usually an absurd amount of complicated infrastructure going on in the background, but this just makes it all the more fascinating when one considers that somebody, somewhere, took the time to plan and design everything. Nowhere is this more evident than in a recent mod that just surfaced: a surprisingly accurate version of Splatoon.

First of all, let's not forget that Splatoon has been out for barely a week, but a small group of fans have wasted no time in sharing their passion for Nintendo's new shooter. A Youtuber named Sethbling just posted the video and it makes for quite a fascinating watch. Players have the option of using the Splattershot, Splat Charger, or Splat Roller, which are really just repurposed versions of the egg, bow, or stick, respectively. The game can be played in both first and third person and all the same rules from the original game apply. The goal is still to cover as much ground as possible and you still recharge ink in your own turf, have the option to turn into a squid, and can swim up walls. Here's the video:
