Splatoon 2 - Story Trailer

In an effort to get Arms a bit more eyeballs, Nintendo tacked on a fresh Splatoon 2 trailer to the end of yesterday’s Direct. We knew that was coming. What we didn’t know was that it would give us our first look at the sequel’s story.

Time to Get Our Ink On

Color us intrigued for the story within Splatoon 2. Splatoon‘s story mode was far better than anyone expected it to be, so there’s somewhat of an expectation this go around. Here’s Nintendo’s plot synopsis:

“Callie—of Squid Sisters fame—has gone missing and it’s up to you, with the help of Marie, to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish while battling against the Octarian army. Use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling, or the new Dualies.”

Nintendo has been rolling out an online comic of sorts entitled Squid Sister Stories. Judging from today’s trailer, the Splatoon 2 narrative will be a continuation of that. You can check out the web comic here. And you can peep yesterday’s trailer below. Splatoon 2 launches July 21st for Nintendo Switch.

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
