Nintendo has launched a brand new website to help Splatoon 2 players get the most out of the game and join up with fellow Inklings and Octolings in the community.

Whether you're just starting out in the game, nervously dipping those squiddy tentacles into the colourful ink for the first time, or even if you're a Rank X powerhouse, Nintendo hopes you'll find the site useful. The homepage features a couple of tips sections for players at various levels, but the real meat of the site is dedicated to tournament play.

The site allows you to easily assemble your own teams, recruit new members, and join regular online tournaments. This looks particularly great for those who aren't surrounded by lots of Splatoon-playing friends, as you can simply sign up, head to the 'Find a Team' section, and be matched up with other solo players. Check out the website for yourself if you want to get involved.

The first tournament organised through the site begins on 13th January at 1pm GMT / 2pm CET and you can sign up to compete right now. At present, the site appears to exclusively accommodate players from several European countries; whether a North American version is also planned is currently unknown.

Have you been hoping to get into competitive Splatoon but needed your own squad of players? Let us know if this helps you out in the comments below.
