Our Favorite New Things In Splatoon 2 (So Far)
Created by Peter Brown and Jacob Dekker and Joey Yee and Kallie Plagge on
Splatoon 2 seems like an extension of the original Wii U game, and in many ways that’s not far from the truth. This is a good thing: Splatoon 2 looks good, sounds good, and feels good, carrying over many of Splatoon's best traits. But there are plenty of surprises in store as well, as we’ve discovered while playing through the first half of the single player campaign. We can’t talk about anything beyond the first three worlds, but that still leaves plenty of meat on the bone: there are new weapons and mechanics to discuss, not to mention that the stages we’ve played are above and beyond the original game’s opening hours. So we’ve put together a rundown of our favorite gameplay changes and other additions that make us smile; however, we also want to hear from you, so let us know what you're most looking forward to in Splatoon 2 in the comments below.
