Splatoon 2 Will Receive Splatfests for at Least Two Years & More

Splatoon 2 Will Receive Splatfests for at Least Two Years & More

But while Switch owners bid their time for that date, Nintendo will at least be giving them a foretaste by making the Nintendo Switch Online app available in two weeks, right in time for Splatoon 2's launch. The app will provide access to a service called SplatNet 2, which was detailed in today's Splatoon 2 Direct presentation (above).

For now, the release of Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch is round the corner.

The goal of the app, per Nintendo's website, is to enhance the online experience for compatible Switch games. With this, you can check out your Splatoon 2 stats, check out upcoming new stages, invite friends to matches and more.

As we've long known, Nintendo is foregoing voice chat on Switch.

In terms of Splatoon 2 specifically, once you select the game from the list, you'll be transported to a uniquely themed area known as "SplatNet 2".

Using the app, you'll be able to send invites via social media networks and messaging services which actually sounds interesting.

While Nintendo's multiplayer features are now free to access on the Switch, the full version will cost pla $20 (£16) per year when it launches, The Independent says. New features unique to the game sequel are set to be highlighted at the livestream event as well.

As for what could most likely be shown during Thursday's Nintendo Direct livestream, GameRant reports that fans expect to get a closer look at the game's various weapons and customization options. 3 and Dr. Mario from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The subscription program will be offered to players for free when it launches later this year, but Nintendo will start charging an annual fee starting in 2018. Subscribers will also be able to enjoy deals on the Nintendo eShop. Although Splatoon 2 will not have voice chat facility, it will include a headset accessory. You could play through an action-packed single-player campaign, compete against other players online, or use the Wii U's GamePad to play one-on-one with a friend.
