Splatoon 2

Nintendo released another new image from Splatoon 2 today that gives us a look at the shooter’s camera options. See the screenshot above.


With the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire kicking off in just a few hours, Nintendo has sent out an English version of the weapon set infographic published yesterday in Japanese. Check it out above.


One of the many things Splatoon 2 is changing up compared to the original are the Special and Sub weapons – the Specials are entirely new, and some of the firearms have had their Sub weapons changed around. Today, the official Splatoon Twitter account revealed the Special and Sub weapons of the weapons that will be available to players during the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire this weekend. They are as follows:

  • Splattershot: Burst Bomb (sub) + Tenta Missiles (special)
  • Splat Charger: Splat Bomb (sub) + Sting Ray (special)
  • Splat Roller: Suction Bomb (sub) + Splashdown (special)
  • Splat Dualies: Curling Bomb (sub) + Inkjet (special)

Head past the break for videos that show the new specials and the new Curling Bomb sub weapon in action:

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire kicks off on Friday. During the first event, Nintendo will be hosting a stream with members of the Treehouse.

You can watch it here at the following times:

– 12 PM PT
– 3 PM ET
– 7 PM in the UK
– 8 PM in Europe

The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is just around the corner, and Nintendo has released brief preview videos of the four weapons that will be available to players: the Splattershot, Splat Charger, Splat Roller and the all-new Splat Dualies. The Splat Dualies preview video is below; head past the break for the other three.

European Switch users have gotten a news item about amiibo, which, as Nintendaan points out, notes that amiibo will be compatible with Splatoon 2. The tweet is below:

Since amiibo were compatible with the original Splatoon, it seemed reasonable for them to return in the sequel, though we don’t know how they’ll be used. Splatoon fans will probably want to keep their Inklings on hand.

To prepare Switch owners for the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire, a news notice has been sent out that fully explains the game’s controls. You can see the overview above.

The rock band Wet Floor are the latest sensation in the Inkling world. Their songs are an enticing blend of different genres, and they’re especially popular with the kids right now. Let’s check out their song “Rip Entry,” which you’ll hear as background music while battling!

Over on the Japanese Splatoon Twitter page, a few new details are shared about what you can expect from Splatoon 2 Global Testfire.

Today’s update mainly centers around the stages. Along with The Reef, the new stage Musselforge Fitness will be playable. Each time a match begins in the Testfire version, the stage will be randomly chosen between the two.

Also, just like at the Switch demo events, the Testfire version allows playing a 4-on-4 Turf War battles with four types of weapons. This includes the new Splat Dualies, plus remixed versions of the Splat Roller and Splat Charger.


Nintendo is promoting the upcoming Splatoon 2 Global Testfire with a new Japanese commercial. We’ve included it below.
