If it has not been apparent before now, it should be coming clearer daily that the name of the game is competition. The Splatoon franchise is all about competition and that competition has levels. The main mode of competition is and has always been Turf War, in which the objective is to ink more turf than your opponent within the given time limit. The additional modes are found inside Ranked Battles, and that’s where the competition really heats up.
The new game coming to the franchise, Splatoon 2, will feature a few new changes to the Ranked Battle modes, and Nintendo was excited to share them with us. The first thing to not of course is the fact that the three modes we’ve grown so used to playing in Splatoon will be returning for the newest game on the Nintendo Switch. The adjustments that have been made to each of these modes is shown here, from the company’s Spaltoon Tumblr page.
In addition to the above information, Nintendo of America has also shared what may be a new segment on their YouTube channel, Splat Chat which features several Treehouse employees discussing these changes. Here’s hoping they continue with this on other aspects of the game, as well.
Nintendo is doing an incredible job of making fans aware of the things that they have in the works right now, and that is such a refreshing thing because it eliminates quite a bit of the “guessing” that people tend to do when it comes to the company’s intentions. It puts much more focus on the phenomenal content that they have on offer, instead.
What do you like most about these new adjustments in Splatoon 2? Were you a primarily Ranked Battles player in the original game? Which is your favorite mode?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
