Splatoon is coming! Splatoon is coming! If you own a Nintendo Wii U or 3DS, and you haven't seen anything about Splatoon, well, you probably haven't turned it on in the past month. Nintendo is banking hard on this new IP, holding several digital events revealing details about the third-person shooter, prepping a new Wii U bundle featuring the game (alongside tried and true staple Nintendoland in North America), and holding several “testfire” events for both press and players to give the game a go. It's no secret that the folks at Nintendo have a lot of faith in the Inklings, and by and large they're not wrong in doing so.
