"Splatoon 2 is a huge, robust sequel to the original Splatoon", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

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 unsafe part-time job!

The new Splatoon-focused Nintendo Direct has revealed more on Splatoon 2's voice chat options and DLC plans.

Splatoon 2 will have its own dedicated part of this application, SplatNet2.

In addition to online battle results, you can check out the weapons and gear that other Inklings you've played with have used. These modes are Splat Zones, where teams fight for control over zones on the map; Tower Control, where players ride a moving tower; and Rainmaker.

League Battles offer another challenge entirely, as players form a team and battle to the top of the league, and players can either group up in a pair to be matched with another pair, or form an entire four-man team themselves.

Splatfest, a periodic event established in Splatoon, is an epic four-on-four battle. Finally the single player Adventure mode returns as you rescue Callie of the Squid Sisters from the Octarians.

With just over two weeks to go until the launch of Splatoon 2 on the Switch, Nintendo is streaming what we assume will be the final Nintendo Direct for the game before its release.

Nintendo has held a number of Testfire demo sessions for both Splatoon titles, but this is the first time that a Splatfest has been held in conjunction with a demo period. SplatNet 2 also launches on July 21 for mobile devices.
