About

For the first time, take Turf War battles on-the-go with the Nintendo
Switch™ system, and use any of the console's portable play styles for
intense local multiplayer* action. Even team up for new 4-player co-op
fun in Salmon Run!

Two years have passed since the original Splatoon™ game was released,
and two years have also passed in Inkopolis! So expect a fresh wave of
fashion, not to mention new weapons and gear. Dual wield the new Splat
Dualies or stick to mainstays like chargers and rollers, which have been
remixed with new strategic possibilities. As always, Turf War is the
favored sport among Inklings, but they also dig ranked battles, taking
down Octarians in a robust single-player campaign, and battling enemy
Salmonids in one dangerous part-time job! No matter which way you play,
splat at home or on-the-go with Nintendo Switch. Staying fresh never
felt so good.

Turf War - Team up in fierce 4-on-4 multiplayer battles* to see
which team can cover the most turf with ink

Salmon Run – 2-4 players* can team up for co-op fun and defeat
waves of enemy Salmonids.

New weapons – Dual wield the new Splat Dualies and avoid
getting splatted with the new Dodge Roll move. Mainstays like the
Splat Roller and Splat Charger have been remixed to include new
gameplay mechanics, and all special weapons are brand-new.

Local and Online Multiplayer - In a first for the series,
compete in local multiplayer Turf War battles, whether in TV mode or
on-the-go in handheld or tabletop modes. Online battles also make a
return
*

New ways to play – Play with the Joy-Con™ controllers or the
Nintendo Switch™ Pro Controller (sold separately), both of which
support motion controls for better aiming

Fresh Updates - Similar to the Splatoon™ game for the Wii U™
console, updates will roll out post-launch, adding new content and
in-game events.

Smart Device Support** - An upcoming smart-device application
for the Nintendo Switch system will allow players to set play
appointments with friends and teammates, as well as voice chat with
friends during play sessions.

LAN Play - Up to 10 docked systems – eight players and two
spectators – can connect via wired LAN (additional accessories
required; sold separately). This feature allows players to create
local Private Battle tournaments without the need for an internet
connection. Local wireless play is perfect for your regular gaming
get-togethers, but LAN Play is where it's at when you want to organize
a serious tournament.

Customize – Change your Inkling's style with different weapons,
headgear, clothes, and shoes. Gear isn't just aesthetic; it offers
different boosts in battles.

amiibo - Compatible with all Splatoon™ series amiibo™ figures.
By tapping these amiibo, the figure's character will appear in the
game and befriend players. Befriend an amiibo character and they will
remember favorited weapons, gear, outfits and option settings.

Splatoon 2 reviews and comments

Splatoon 2 is basically the original game but with a better multiplayer mode and a very enjoyable "Salmon Run" mode but a worse singleplayer experience that drags for way too long. There isn't much to say about this game as it is just a better Splatoon. However a singleplayer campaign that bests that of the original game was released as DLC and is a massive improvement, making this the definitive experience.
7/10

+ Ink mechanic depth
+ Style/attitude in music, characters, cosmetics
+ Motion controls work excellently ; allow quick and precise aiming
+ Community focus (e.g. Splatfests)

- Too similar to original Splatoon
- Single player too limited
