SPLA­TOON

EDGE - - HYPE - Pub­lisher/ de­vel­oper Nin­tendo ( EAD Group No 2) For­mat Wii U Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease Q2 2015

Nin­tendo’s strik­ing on­line shooter will ship with a sin­gle­player story, too. In Hero mode, play­ers will set out to re­trieve the ap­pro­pri­ately named Bat­tery Cat­fish, which pro­vides Spla­toon’s world with its en­ergy, from the ne­far­i­ous Oc­to­pus Corps. Ex­pect plat­form­ing chal­lenges, a lo-fi sidescrolling sec­tion, and an aw­ful lot of paint squirting. It should pro­vide a much-needed in­tro to the game’s un­usual shooter me­chan­ics be­fore you squid-jump into the on­line arena.
