Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct Details New Features

Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct live stream

It's an app to necessitate online play on the Nintendo Switch and will be available on July 21, the same day as Splatoon 2.

For Nintendo Switch owners, this will be their first chance to try out the Nintendo Switch Online app and service, which will be free until sometime next year.

Today's Splatoon 2 Direct showed a lobby system that will be familiar to players of Arms, with avatars visualised on screen as they dance around a virtual room.

The app is set to let players keep track of different stage schedules, stats, ranking details and the amount of ink they've shot from the game's various weapons. On Thursday morning at 10 AM ET, Nintendo is going to reveal some new features that will be coming in the sequel.

Look, either way, it's safe to say I'm a lot more excited for Splatoon 2 than I was before. That app will, appropriately enough, be called Nintendo Switch Online, according to a press release. There's ranked mode, league play, Salmon Run, a single-player campaign and plenty of extras and mini-games in Inkopolis. Just how fresh are you?

The basic service, which includes online gameplay and voice chat (for designated games), will remain free until the paid version debuts next year. When it does, you'll be able to order gear using in-game money, and then pick up your purchases next time you play!

The whole aesthetic of Splatoon 2's clothing options can basically be described as athleisure-hipster-punk mixed with graffiti street art - and some scuba gear thrown in for good measure, of course.
