Today’s the big day! The day Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sees its worldwide release and although our review is running late, it’s almost finished, but I can’t help but put it on hold as I give this turn of events priority!
It seems Super Mario Run isn’t the only thing that’s celebrating Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s release today, as the official Japanese Splatoon Twitteraccount is also celebrating by sharing a special piece of art that you can see right here:
With both Inkling Girl and Boy making their debut in the newly released racer, of course the Splatoon account would want to honour the game that has incorporated the Splatoon brand, by way of incorporating two characters with different colour skins available, plus the Urchin Underpass stage and the all new Splat Buggy!

With more news regarding Splatoon 2 dropping when we lease expect it, a whole ton of news, coverage and information has made its way online and we’re on hand to compile it all and share it in a single place. Best make yourselves comfortable, this one is going to be a long one!
Today’s first piece information is to do with the Spawn Points seen and used in Splatoon 2. Admittedly we have previously learned all we really needed to know about them and have seen them in action (provided you played last month’s Testfire or watched footage of it), but the Squid Research Lab have finally gotten round to posting an English report on regarding Spawn Points and we have a coup of that report, right here: Continue reading Spawn Points, Trend Changes, Kojudge-kun & Special Weapons!

I hope you’re not getting bored of all the Splatoon 2 news we’ve been sharing lately, because now we’ve got something else to cover!
Do you remember back in when we first got to learn about the Diadema Amphitheater stage? Well as expected that name in particular is not the English name. The English name is Starfish Mainstage and the Squid Research Lab has posted a quick report about the arena, which we’re sharing right here: Continue reading A Quick Lesson on Splatoon 2’s Starfish Mainstage→
Get ready for more Splatoon 2 news straight from the official Japanese Twitteraccount for Splatoon, because we’ve got some!
In the first Splatoon, if a player didn’t like the abilities their gear came with, they could pay a visit to Spyke the Sea Urchin and either pay him with coins to reroll gear abilities, or with Super Sea Snails and a similar thing can be done in Splatoon 2.
Just like in the original game, Splatoon 2 will also feature Gear as a means to customize your character As before, Gear is divided into 3 categories; Headgear, clothes & Shoes and each item of gear can possess different abilities like Ink Saver, Quick Respawn and more. Because the world of Splatoon revolves around mass defiling of public property and also fashion , you can expect the inklings to be wearing all the latest trends in Inkopolis Square
It is Friday the 24thof March and the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is now underway, but with the first event over, it’s time to sit back, take stock of the event and air some first impressions of colourful sequel.
So what do I think of Splatoon 2 after having played it for nearly an hour? Well, I like it, the opening tutorial features clear instructions and smooth gameplay, but that smooth gameplay soon dissipated when I tried my hand engaging in Turf Wars. Granted that could have been down to my own internet connection, but being as so others were also experiencing issues similar to myself, it’s doubtful. Continue reading [Feature] Splatoon 2 Global Testfire First Impressions→
With the Splatoon 2 Testfire set to get underway tomorrow, a little earlier today, official Japanese details and videos regarding the available weapon sets made its way to the internet. Fast forward a good few hours, the English details have followed suit and since there’s a ton of information, it’s only natural we’d want to compile it all into one place.
Love Splatoon but unable to participate in the Global Testfire this week because you don’t own a Nintendo Switch? Not to worry, Nintendo has you covered.
The Nintendo Treehouse team will be on hand to live stream the very first event, which kicks off at 12:00 p.m. PT (15:00 p.m. ET/19:00 p.m. UTC for the UK,) on Friday the 24thof March. So even if you can’t play yourself, at least you can get a proper look at the game is really like and what you can expect from the full game. Make sure you save the link below:
As far as the Inkling world is concerned, Staying Fresh, inking everything in Turf Wars, keeping up with the latest trends and music are four majorly important factors.
In fact they’re all so equally important (especially music) that Splatoon 2 has quite a few musical acts and now the Squid Research Lab has taken it upon itself to tell us all about the musical act, Wet Floor! So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to share that information right here: Continue reading [Feature] Splatoon 2’s Totally Inkredible Wet Floor→
