The Nintendo Switch is about to get another big game – Splatoon 2 is not out yet, but at Amazon USA is already got a huge success. Currently, the game is at the first place in the best-selling games list at Amazon US store. The Splatoon 2 is releasing on July 21 on the Nintendo Switch. Much like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and previous Nintendo Switch games, ordering digitally will not allow you to preload the game.
While the Splatoon 2 on the Amazon UK, it’s still at #3, as of this article’s writing time. Still behind the sales of Destiny 2 and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also currently enjoying success on both Amazon gaming charts, with the game sitting at #18 in the US and #10 in the UK.
Splatoon 2, like its predecessor, is a third-person shooter where guns fire ink. You’re an inkling – a being that can fire weapons when in human form, or traverse through ink as a squid, replenishing ammo while doing so. This approach lends a layer of strategy to the normal run and gun mechanics of shooters. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.
The game itself takes place in a fictional world where a species called Inklings reigns supreme. Inklings have a humanoid form and a squid form — and you can switch between these whenever you want to. Inklings can fire weapons when in human form, or traverse through ink as a squid and replenish ammo while doing so.
On to the most important bit in Splatoon 2 – weapons. There’s a separate weapon shop called Ammo Knights, where you can arm your squids to the teeth. Weapons come in sets of three — main weapon, sub-weapon, and a special weapon.
