10 Reasons Why You Should Be Excited For Splatoon

Splatoon was a surprising reveal from Nintendo during their E3 showing. A squad based shooter that looked fun, colourful, but most of all refreshing. So we thought we’d give you 10 reasons why you should be excited for the upcoming splat-a-thon. (E3, Nintendo, Splatoon, Wii U)

It's a colorful shooter with squid girls. What's not to like? XD

I can't wait to see more maps and more possible color combinations & weapons.

I'm hoping the different layouts give each maps a unique feel, and help it to play different than the basic map we saw.

Are the characters only squid girls, or are their male characters as well ? Don't care too much either way, I'm getting this game.

I'm thinking that they are only going to use neon colors so that each one is easily distinguishable, so I expect to see every major color but in neon form. I also hope for different map layouts and since Reggie and the devs have said that other modes, including single player are coming, then I would be very surprised if the game was light on maps. I'm pretty sure there are squid boys too lol. It's hard to tell during gameplay, but they seem to be marketing the game with the girl as the leader, like how TF2 mostly gets marketed with the Heavy.

This does actually look fun, and it's a new IP too.

this game has me more excited then any game i saw at e3. feels like a breath of fresh air. hope it continues to show great things as more is revealed.

Its good to see Nintendo is letting their young developers create a new IP in their own vision!!

This is actually my most-wanted game. The possibilities of features, modes, weapons, and arenas are endless!!

Finally a shooter that breaks the rules and isn't the same feeling military shooter we've had for ages. Plus its an area shooter, easily always the funest type of shooter.

This game kinda seals the deal for me to finally get a wii. I thought I would be getting the XB1 but the Wii has a much better library at this point.

You mean a Wii U. A Wii is a different console. :P
amnalehu  +   422d ago
yup, wii u. thanks for the correction.

Great example of Nintendo using that exclusivity deal theyve made with colour.

What are you talking about?
Far as I'm aware, this was made by the core animal crossing team...

I think he's trying to say that Nintendo is the only company to take advantage of the colours available to them.
weekev15  +   423d ago
Yeah what Iondestroy said.
Ol_Boy  +   423d ago
I can hardly wait for this game.
stripe814  +   423d ago
if Nintendo only made a shooter like this with their characters...... oh well..$$$$

i just hope they have skins of Nintendo characters as DLC

Smashoon. In fairness to Nintendo theyre damned if they do, damned if they dont.

People criticise them for overusing their mascots and now they dont use them and go full on new ip but then folks wonder why they havent used theirmascots.

FWIW I like the look of the inklings.
360ICE  +   423d ago
Yeah, inklings all the way. I am beyond tired of the Nintendo mascots. It's not that they're bad, but everyone needs a break once in a while.
KonsoruMasuta  +   423d ago
Technically, these are Nintendo characters, as it's a Nintendo owned IP.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   422d ago
It's got my money merely on the grounds of being a new IP, that actually looks like it caters to the core crowd, from Nintendo.
That's something that I want to support and, more importantly, encourage Nintendo to do.

The fact that it looks like a freaking BLAST to play is just icing on the cake.

Dont have a Wii U yet, but this game has me intrested, is good to see a new IP from Nintendo and as an online shooter I think the game has a lot of potential.

Most anticipated game for me, although the release date is too long...
