Splatoon 2

Famitsu published a lengthy Splatoon 2 feature this week. Among the coverage was an interview with four of the game’s developers. Art director Seita Inoue, lead programmer Shintaro Sato, director Yusuke Amano, and producer Hisashi Nogami participated in the talk.

The developers weighed in on Splatoon 2’s improvements and adjustments from the first game, the new Salmon Run mode, the story, and future updates. Among the things discussed were Nintendo’s approach to Salmon Run, how Nintendo considered announcing a Splatoon sequel during the first game’s final Splatfest, a tease of more new weapon categories, and more. The developers were even asked if Marina is an Octoling.

You can find a comprehensive summary of important points from Famitsu’s interview below.

Last week, lines in Japan were pretty crazy as consumers waited just for a chance to purchase a Switch unit. Now that Splatoon 2 has launched, consumers were back in full force. Kotaku shows us a look at what happened for the big release.

Splatoon 2 recently had a downloadable demo event dedicated to a Splatfest. However, the game’s first true Splatfest will be taking place during the first week of August.

In both North America and Europe, players will be asked about their condiment of choice: mayonnaise or ketchup. says that the Splatfest will run “during the first weekend in August.”

As of now Nintendo hasn’t made any announcements about Japan. North America and Europe also had the same topic for the demo event, but Japan had something different.
