Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch
Despite the recent release of its first paid, single-player expansion, Octo, Splatoon 2remains a multiplayer-first game for most of its community. Nintendo Switch’s online capabilities were free when the game launched, which helped support and expand the player base — and continues to do so. With the premium subscription service Nintendo Switch Online on the way, however, should players be concerned about a shrinking multiplayer field or, worse, a greater divide between experienced Squid Kids willing to pony up and tentative newcomers testing the waters?
Producer Hisashi Nogami doesn’t think so, he told Polygon. But he does anticipate some changes to how people approach the game once the Nintendo Switch Online barrier goes up this fall.
“We don’t think it will have no influence,” Nogami said. “We imagine it will have some sort of influence or effect by the addition of Nintendo Switch Online. [But] we want to use Nintendo Switch Online’s addition as a way to redouble our commitment to the community and reaffirm for them that we’re going to support this game more and more.”
What that will probably look like is a continued, consistent flow of updates to the multiplayer modes. Those include weapons, costumes and stages, and roll out to all players at no cost. (Splatoon’s priorities in both multiplayer and free content is what makes the $19.99 OctoExpansion particularly surprising. Nogami says the team has no current plans for more single-player, premium releases, however.)
The promise of new things to play with in Splatoon 2 will hopefully sway anyone put off by the upcoming, $20-a-year requirement to keep playing the modes they had already been playing for a year. Nintendo Switch Online will, in effect, change Splatoon 2 from costing a one-time fee of $59.99 to $59.99 plus an annual subscription fee for however long you want to keep splatting opponents with your Inklings.
For Nogami, the pending Nintendo Switch Online fees only encourage the team to double down on providing a fair experience for all online players.
“It’s not to say that there’s no possibility that we’ll ever consider releasing some paid premium multiplayer content,” he explained, which would add another barrier of entry to Splatoon fans. “The main thing we want to maintain is this even playing field for players.”
Splatoon 2 - Nintendo Switch
Ink-splatting action is back and fresher than ever
The squid kids called Inklings are back to splat more ink and claim more turf in this colorful and chaotic 4-on-4 action shooter. 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!
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.
