◦ Splatoon – Available May 29 – Splatter enemies and claim your turf as ink-spraying, squid-like Inklings in Nintendo’s new mess fest! Challenge players online in chaotic four-on-four turf wars, and unleash squid powers to ink your way to victory. In these all-out online turf wars, you’ll need ink blasters, ink rollers, ink bombs and squid power on your side! Every splat of ink you spray gives you a chance to transform into a squid and hide, climb walls or travel at super speed. Rank up in online battles to unlock new weapons and fresh gear for your Inkling, complete with unique game-play perks. Or earn your stripes in the single-player mode to stop an evil octopus army that has kidnapped the electric catfish used to power the city of Inkopolis! This underground adventure has octopi to splatter, ink puzzles to solve and bosses to beat. No time to blink – prepare to ink! Click here to view a trailer for the game.
