Splatoon

It’s been a year since Splatoon launched on Wii U, and since bringing a splash of color to the shooter genre, with free updates along the way, it’s been quite successful. Nintendo celebrated this milestone with the lovely piece of artwork seen above, as well as the announcement that a new Wii U Splatoon bundle is coming to Japan. The bundle will include a digital copy of the game as well as the upcoming Squid Sisters amiibo. Check out pictures of the bundle, which will be released July 7, in the gallery below. Have you played Splatoon at all over the past year, and if so what do you think of Nintendo’s freshest IP? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

    Splatoon is the best thing that came out of the Wii U. It’s awesome when developers experiment with new ideas and I’m glad that it is successful.

    Splatoon was the game that got me to love online multiplayer. I’m so glad that it went on to become such a hit, and I can’t wait for the eventual release of Splatoon 2 (Spla2n?) on NX.
