Splatoon 2

Here’s the latest video for the Octo Expansion, showcasing a level guaranteed 100% extreme riding action!

Also, Nintendo has announced that fans who attend the Splatoon 2 World Championship at E3 2018 will get an exclusive t-shirt (pictured below). Players who cannot attend will be able to get an in-game version of that same t-shirt starting on June 7th in the evening in North America, and early morning on June 8th in Europe and Japan.

To get it, you will have to find the special news post in the News section of the Nintendo Switch (make sure you’re subscribed to the Squid Research Lab). Inside, there will be a link: by clicking on it, you will launch the game, and once you’ve made it to Inkopolis, you will get the t-shirt automatically.

Be careful though: the news post will not be available forever, and you will have to claim your t-shirt before it’s too late! More details to be found in the nofication once it’s live.

Here’s pictures of the t-shirt:

Today, Masahiro Sakurai “announced” that he would “introduce” something during the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 presentation, on June 12th/13th. Of course, this comes as no surprise: we already knew that the game will be at E3, and Masahiro Sakurai was already pretty involves in the various reveals for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
