At the end of today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, a new trailer for Splatoon 2 debuted, showing off the game’s single-player mode. In a shocking twist, Callie – of Squid Sisters fame – has gone missing and her right-tentacle squid Marie tasks the player to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish. Players can use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling or the new Dualies. The single-player mode is designed to teach players tips and tricks that they can then use in multiplayer.
Putting aside the details of the game, I have to hand it to Nintendo for doing yet another stellar job in producing a trailer for Splatoon 2 that goes beyond traditional video game trailers. Along with the first trailer they debuted a while back, this trailer shows a degree of technical accomplishment, a lot of creativity, a great soundtrack and some impressive editing.
