Nintendo has announced Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch, a direct sequel to the hugely charming and colourful paint-based shooter.
The surprise sequel was announced during Nintendo s Switch Direct earlier this morning with an extensive gameplay trailer.
Many of us were expecting a port of the existing Wii U version with additional costumes and features, so a fully-fledged sequel is a nice surprise.
Just like the original, Splatoon 2 will feature two teams of squid kids fighting it out across a variety of maps.
The objective is simple: cover as much of the map in your team s colour as possible.
The sequel will add new stages and weapons to the fray as well as new hairstyles, outfits and accessories for your fabulous inklings to wear.
