Splatoon is a delightful third person action shooter for Nintendo’s Wii U console, which to date has sold more than 4 million copies. Splatter enemies in Splatoon and claim your turf as the ink-spewing, squid-like characters called Inklings. Challenge your friends in chaotic four-on-four matches, in which the goal is to get your ink on as many places as possible and claim your turf, all while strategically submerging yourself in your team’s colors and blasting your enemies. This is a colorful and chaotic online third-person action shooter – exclusively on Wii U.
Splatoon Key Features
Team Based Fun – Hop online and battle in four-on-four matches. Team up and take on other teams in an action-filled battle to cover the level with as much ink as possible. Spray walls to access hard-to-reach areas.
Tag Your Turf – Covering more territory with ink unlocks powered-up super weapons that can be used to attack rivals or cover more turf.
Strategy Is Everything – Defeat enemies to splatter them in an explosion of ink, covering more turf for your team. But choose wisely: Players who only go after the enemy might find their turf redecorated in their enemies’ colors.
So Much Ink – Refill ink tanks, hide from opponents or move faster by turning into a squid and diving into the ink with the tap of a button.
Personalize Your Controls – Select between multiple control options on the Wii U GamePad controller, including using gyroscopic controls to look around, allowing for better aiming and control.
