Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch, which released worldwide on July 21, 2017. It is a sequel to Splatoon, and includes a story-driven single-player mode as well as competitive online multiplayer modes. By June 2019, Splatoon 2 had sold over nine million copies worldwide, selling better than its predecessor and making it one of the best-selling Switch games.
Like its predecessor, Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter in which players control anthropomorphic squids and octopuses, known as Inklings and Octolings respectively, and use colored ink to cover land, attack opponents and clear goals. Inklings and Octolings can morph between humanoid form, during which they can fire ink with their weapons, and squid or octopus form, during which they can quickly swim through ink of their own color and replenish their ink supply.
The sequel adds new standard, sub and special weapons, including dual-wield pistols called Dualies that allow the player to perform dodge rolls, shotgun-like weapons called Brellas that enable defensive maneuvers with folding shields, and jetpacks known as Inkjets. Like the previous game, it features the standard Turf War mode for Regular Battles, in which two four-player teams have three minutes to cover the most turf with their color of ink. Splatoon 2 also maintains the first game's rotation of Splat Zones, Tower Control and Rainmaker for Ranked Battles, unlocked at level ten, while also adding a new Clam Blitz mode. League Battles allow players to form teams with friends playing the same modes as in Ranked Battles. A new mode, Salmon Run, allows up to four players to team up cooperatively to tackle waves of enemies called Salmonids and collect Boss Salmonids' eggs.
