Nintendo held tonight a special ARMS Direct where several informations on the fighting game were revealed, along with trailers and an upcoming “Testpunch” demo. And to close this live stream with some colourful surprise, Nintendo has finally lifted the veil on the Story Mode of another new IP of theirs that is about to hit the Switch catalogue: Splatoon 2.
We must say that Nintendo did a pretty good job here since this story mode is a follow up to the Squid Sisters Stories that they’ve published for the last month. So, what is it all about? Well, since the aftermatch of last September’s SplatFest, the Inkling showrunners of the “Inkopolis News” Callie & Marie have been drifting apart. And in the last pages of the Stories, we learn that Callie has gone missing. Now, it is your mission to find out what is going on. Here’s the full intro and trailer:
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.
