Splatoon – Wii U

Splatoon is an upcoming third-person shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo for Wii U, which is scheduled for release in 2015. The title is a portmanteau of the words “splat” and “platoon”.

Splatoon is a team-based third-person shooter which is playable by up to eight players in 4-vs-4 matches. Players control characters called Inklings, who have the ability to change between human and squid forms. In human form, Inklings are able to shoot colored ink across the game environment, with the player’s goal being to have the most territory inked in their team’s color before the match ends. Transforming into a squid allows players to swim through ink of their own color, even up walls and through grates, hiding from the enemy and replenishing their ink supply in the process. Conversely, enemy ink is much slower to move across in human form. Players can use their ink to try and ‘splatter’ their opponents, which will send them back to their team’s respawn point whilst also providing a large splat of ink.

Players can use the Wii U GamePad to view a map of the surroundings and instantly launch towards the location of another teammate, as well as use gyroscopic controls to assist with aiming. Along with the standard ink gun, special weapons with limited ammo can be obtained, such as a paint roller, a bazooka, grenades, and a sniper rifle.
