Today, Nintendo gave some news about Splatoon:

– more information about the various game modes

In addition to previously detailed single-player and online “Turf War” modes, action shooter Splatoon will feature a highly competitive “Ranked Battle” mode, which ranks and matches players based on their wins in 4-on-4 multiplayer matches. The super-fun and super-colorful game will also feature a “Battle Dojo.” In this mode, players can enjoy local 1-on-1 battles with friends. One player plays on the GamePad controller, while the other plays on the TV using a separate controller, competing to see who can pop the most balloons.

– amiibo confirmed for the game. They unlock some special missions, which allows you to get special items only available with those amiibo. There’s 3 figures: Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Inkling Squid (only available in the Splatoon + amiibo bundle in Europe).

Here’s a video showcasing new levels, from Nintendo of America:
