"From the people that brought you the Bleck n Spoon Tournament (BnS), it is time for a new organization designed for the highest quality in Splatoon 2 coverage! We would like to introduce InkTV, the central hub for all your essential content in Splatoon 2, from a tournament that comes as the next form of BnS to a new interview series where we will go one on one with some of the stars and notable members of the community. But perhaps one of our biggest items will be our podcast, called Ink Radio, where we will discuss pertinent topics in the game, the meta, the community, or whatever else has to revolve around the game we all know and love!"

Sometimes it felt like yelling into the void. Ever since launch, the Splatoon community has clamored for a true, dedicated spectator mode and a LAN mode for 4v4 multiplayer. These features never materialized in the original game. Although hope was not lost, it was hard not to wonder if they would ever come.

There's nothing quite like a celebration, and there's no celebration quite like a tournament of the best teams competitive Splatoon has to offer!

For the one-year anniversary of the launch of Splatoon on Nintendo Wii U, Squidboards is proud to present:

The Splatoon Anniversary Invitational (SAI), an online, double-elimination event on Saturday, May 28th. Sixteen teams invited from four official qualifier...

Today Nintendo announced a new wave of Splatoon Amiibos hitting stores in North America on July 8th. Alongside brand new Callie and Marie Amiibos, we'll also be getting recolours of the original three Splatoon Amiibos.

The original Splatoon Amiibos unlocked special challenges for the single player missions, and the recolours will function the very same. The Squid Sisters Amiibo however will instead allow you to listen to various Squid Sisters songs, including a couple from the Chogaki concert in Japan! Alongside those songs, you'll also be able to change Inkopolis Plaza to it's night time appearance featured during Splatfests, and unlock new dance animations for the Squid Sisters from their live concert performance.

Nintendo has just announced two new events for fans of Splatoon in Japan! This April, there will both be a second Squid Sisters concert as well as the brand-new Gachibon Festival. It's going to be an exciting month!

The first announcement is a new Squid Sisters live performance. Following up on their wildly successful first concert, the pop duo will be at Nico Nico Choukaigi, a conference for Japan's streaming site Nico Nico Douga, taking place April 29th and 30th. Like the last concert, it will feature hologram projections of Callie and Marie accompanied by a live band. Further details have not yet been announced.

Today's Nintendo Direct made it all worthwhile with some unexpected Splatoon news. Despite announcing that Splatoon would no longer receive waves of free DLC (and potentially little else otherwise), Nintendo bounced back with new information outlining major updates hitting the eShop this Spring.

Through 2015 and into the new year, we've seen players come and go. Teams rise and fall. Tournaments and Twitch channels created, and a barrage of new weapons, maps, and gear. Although the future is uncertain, it's quite amazing to see how far Splatoon and its community have come since launch!

We're lucky to have awesome community members stepping up to continue to support the competitive side of Splatoon, and now a select group of such players are back with a brand new Splatoon competition -- Leagues Under The Ink!
