Yesterday, Nintendo posted a video featuring Splatoon series producer Hisashi Nogami and Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi from the V&A Museum. An exhibit opened a few months ago showcasing the original game’s development.
Throughout the video, Nintendo showed brief flashes of Splatoon’s creation. One aspect fans noticed is that “Super Bell Hill”, the first level in Super Mario 3D World, was apparently used as a test map during development. We can also see that there was a different special meter.

Within the past few days, the full GDC presentations for both Splatoon and ARMS were published online. We thought it might be interesting to highlight prototypes of the two games, as this is the first time we have direct-feed footage as opposed to very off-screen videos (which also weren’t complete). If you’re interested, we have both clips below.

Splatoon 2 producer on whether Pearl and Marina know they’re in a game and more
Game Informer published two new interviews with Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami today. Aside from one discussion that was more on the serious side, the second was off-beat and was more about lore. Topics in the second interview include whether Pearl and Marina know they’re in a game, what happens to Inklings as they move through ink, and how they can’t go in water.
We’ve rounded up the comments about these topics below. Game Informer has the interview in full here.

It’s not the best quality, but someone did manage to take a video of the prototype from GDC. You can watch it below.
