A family-friendly twist on the classic arena deathmatch formula, Splatoon challenges players not to shoot their opponents directly, but to cover as much of the level's walls and floor in your team's own paint color.
The game also boasts some unique and interesting movement abilities and of course contains some of Nintendo's trademark charm. Check out the video above to see Splatoon in action.
