Nintendo’s incredibly fun squid shooter, Splatoon, features an offline single player mode as well apart from its 4 vs 4 online multiplayer. During a Nintendo Direct feed, we were given a glimpse of what that mode will look like.
As you can see in the footage above, Splatoon’s single player mode has a lot of variety when it comes to levels.
Players will use their squid like character who can transform himself into a human, to go up against an octopus army, an army which is equipped with ink throwing weapons.
Speaking about the single player campaign, Nintendo Boss Satoru Iwata stated:
“Squid versus Octopus. Nature’s epic battle of supremacy, turf, and the survival of each species begins.”
In addition to its single player, the main highlight of this title is its multiplayer mode. Splatoon multiplayer can be played by upto 8 players in 4 vs 4 matches.
Players will take control of characters called inklings, and their main goal will be to throw ink and mark each territory with their team’s color.
By the end of the match, team having the most territory marked with their color, wins.
Splatoon is being developed by Nintendo EAD exclusively for the Wii U and the game is slated for a Q2 2015 release.
