Video: Stylish new trailer for Splatoon reveals single player mode


During the Nov. 5 Nintendo Direct, we were treated to a look at Splatoon’s single player campaign. Even though the game focuses on frantic, 4-on-4 online battles, it will, as promised, also contain a single player mode. In it, the battle between squids and octopi rages. The player fights on the side of the squid, of course, and if the above trailer is any indication, there will be plenty of varied levels to explore and enemies to fight.

Consider me sold on Splatoon. I thought it looked alright, gameplay-wise, at E3, but I wanted to see more of a visual identity for the game. In that respect the new trailer blew me away. How about you?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
