The Japanese Splatoon Twitter account hasn’t stopped sending out new content over the past week. View a few new screenshots above, and some bits of information below.
Investigation report from the Squid Research Lab. This mysterious person (sorry, squid) guides the protagonist in Hero Mode. It seems that in the peaceful squid world he is the only man (sorry, squid) that has noticed the plans of the Octopus Corps. Anyway, he’s totally seeing our cameraman here.

One of the big features in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the inclusion of Masterpieces, a look back on what the game’s cast got up to in some of their previous incarnations. Today Sakurai talks a little bit about how that’s all going to work when we get our hands on the game:

Today Sakurai touches on some of the games in Stadium mode which will be receiving a bit of an upgrade from their 3DS incarnation:
