Splatoon 2 Launch Hampered By Nintendo Switch eShop Error

Splatoon 2 has launched for the Nintendo Switch and while gamers are trying to get their hands on the game but, there is some issue stopping them from buying. Switch users have not been able to purchase the title as Nintendo eShop has apparently crashed.

Nintendo has not revealed what is the reason behind this but, our wild guess is that the overwhelming amount of players logging on to buy Splatoon 2, since Nintendo does not allow pre-downloading for its titles, might be the reason why the eShop has crashed.

However, the error has slowed down for users but, there are still many who are reporting that they can’t get through. Also, be careful while purchasing it as users have reported that they have been charged more than once while trying to purchase Splatoon 2.

Also, Splatoon Anime has been confirmed in development. CoroCoro Comic has confirmed the Splatoon anime that will air on August 12, 2017, on their YouTube channel. But, it is still unclear if Splatoon Anime will be translated for the western audience or not but, we are sure that if we don’t get an official one we will get a fan translation of the anime as translations are already big in anime department.

Furthermore, Nintendo has also found a way to keep the rage quitters in check in Splatoon 2.If a player quits the game before the match ends, the next time the player comes online will receive an instant message reading:

Your previous online play session didn’t end naturally, which is preeeeety suspicious. If this keeps happening, we’re gonna have to ban you from playing online for a while. Make sure your internet isn’t busted and try again.

Splatoon 2 is a third-person team based multiplayer shooter developed by Nintendo exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
