SPLATOON 2 FEELS GREAT, BUT HAS MORE TO PROVE
Admittedly, I have little experience with Splatoon, which likely made Splatoon 2 all the more enjoyable for me. I’m sure fans know to ignore the cute art style, character design and presentation; these matches get intense! Splatoon has developed a strong following and for good reason. I can see the series becoming somewhat of a staple for Nintendo’s hardware in the future, assuming there remains a future post-Switch.
Returning players may be disappointed to not see more changes in what they are calling a “full sequel” that simulatenously boasts “new stages, new fashions and new weapons”. I can see this being one of the stronger titles released in the launch window of 2017. It’s perhaps just a shame it didn’t build upon the first more. Then again, more of the same is sometimes alright.
