Nintendo Announces Splatoon

by Greg DabkeyJune 10, 2014

A new game for Wii U is Splatoon.  It uses the GamePad’s gyro sensor and will show the map and colored inks.   Ink will be a main element of the game where your own ink will have normal gameplay where walking through enemy ink will slow you down.

This game will be Nintendo’s first FPS.  Will include multiplayer as well.  The player can be in a normal form, or even transform into a squid and have other unique abilities for both movement and attack/defense purposes.  Will be available in 2015.

Game Info from Nintendo:

Splatoon is a four-on-four multiplayer action game that drops players into a battle arena that two teams strive to claim as their own. Players of each team spray ink on the ground around them while blotting out the opposing team members in turf war competitions. Each character can turn into a squid-like character and swim through his or her own team’s ink – gliding up and down walls and under floors – with ease. Using intuitive controls made possible with the Wii U GamePad’s gyro sensor makes it easy to look around and aim, and the on-screen map displays the entire arena at a glance, both of which feel great and redefine multiplayer action.Splatoon is targeted to launch in the first half of 2015.
