What is going on

Splatoon was always bound to be a game focused primarily on competitive multiplayer, but that didn’t stop Nintendo from developing a pretty cool single player campaign as well. Playing something like a Super Mario Galaxy-esque take on Splatoon, there were some interesting gameplay ideas and boss characters explored over its short length. It was more or less assumed that Nintendo would be going with something similar for Splatoon 2, and the company just showed footage of the new single player campaign at the end of the ARMS Direct.

The new footage sees an Inkling encountering Marie—not Cap’n Cuttlefish, interestingly—as they take the fight to the Octarian threat once more. New gameplay concepts have been added in—like grind rails, boost pads, and trampolines—and it seems like there may even be a sidequest-like element with “Sheldon’s Requests”, which task the player with using a particular weapon for a stage. It all looks quite fun, and will no doubt serve as a nice addition to the main game modes:
