– Paint the level with your squad’s color of ink
– Direct combat as well
– Focusing too much on your opponents can be a distraction from the ultimate goal of painting the town red (orange, pink, green, etc.)
– GamePad shows an overview of which territories are painted and your teammate’s positions on the map
– Can “super jump” to another player’s position by tapping the map
– This allows you to spawn at a safe area but still get halfway across the map without a long traverse
– Traversal is a big part of the game
– Spraying ink all over the map has an immediate impact on your ability to get around the area
– Your character can immediately transform into a squid that will speed along any surface painted with your color
– This allows you to move very quickly
– You can even go up walls and under fences
– Dive under to refill ink
– It’s possible but very difficult to see an opposing player who is in squid mode


Nintendo has announced a new IP for Wii U titled “Splatoon”.

Here’s what we know:

– 8 player 4 on 4 online multiplayer action game
– All about controlling territory
– Splatter map with ink, whoever has most territories win
– Characters are squids and have a wider range of actions as a result
– Can swim really fast in your own ink, your feet get stuck in enemy ink
– An overhead view of the entire map is available on the gamepad to see what ink is being splattered where in real time
– Allies can use your ink but enemies are able to disrupt paths – can be used defensively or offensively
– Mechanics are focused on players finding strategies rather than just running and gunning – plenty of options

Splatoon will launch in 2015.
