With Splatoon officially having joined the ranks of successful Nintendo franchises, it looks like Nintendo is willing to now take more risks with it after the almost disappointingly (initially, at any rate) safe sequel that was Splatoon 2– apparently, a Splatoon 2 announcement is lined up for June 9, which will “shock the world”.
With no details to go on just yet, we can try and speculate on what this announcement might be- a Splatoon port to 3DS? A mobile Splatoon game? A Switch port of the original Splatoon? Splatoon: Battle Royale? Okay, I really want that last one to happen, it would work so great. Except for the part where all the ink will instantly give your position away. But still!
We don’t know what the news is just yet, but as soon as we find out, we will be sure to let you know. Till then, stay fresh and stay off the hook in Splatoon 2, available now exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
