Leap skills

EDGE - - HYPE -

A new game type called Salmon Run sees a squad of In­klings wear­ing chest waders bat­tling waves of over­sized fish to re­cover Power Eggs – as you do – with re­wards de­pen­dent on the num­ber they col­lect. It’s a Horde mode with a Nin­tendo twist, though Nogami’s ex­pla­na­tion that “the higher the player’s skill level, the more dif­fi­cult the mis­sions they can chal­lenge them­selves to” sug­gests it isn’t end­less. Two to four play­ers can link up their Switches to play lo­cally, while on­line you’ll form teams of four. “The In­klings al­ready work so well as ac­tion char­ac­ters that we felt there was the pos­si­bil­ity of fur­ther broad­en­ing

Spla­toon’s scope as an ac­tion game,” Nogami elab­o­rates. “We also wanted to add depth to the world that the In­klings in­habit. We de­vel­oped Salmon Run with both of those aims in mind.”
