To celebrate the Spring Fest event in Splatoon 2, Nintendo has created a special piece of art. Get a look at the image above.


The Art of Splatoon 2, which released in Japan back in November 2017, is finally coming west. Listings on Amazon reveal that the book will be made available in North America and Europe later in the year.

Splatoon 2’s latest update has gone live, and it’s a bit of an interesting one. In case you’re curious, the new version is 4.6.1.

Following it’s announcement last month, CoroCoro has released a new promo video for the upcoming distribution of the exclusive “Mecha Gear” in Splatoon 2.

Players will be able to earn the new gear by purchasing the next issue of CoroCoro magazine and getting a special download code. The issue is set to release on April 15th.

The promo trailer can be viewed below.
