    Nintendo surprised the world yesterday with the announcement of a preview trailer for their upcoming home console, the NX. This morning, that trailer has finally come -- our first look at the Nintendo Switch.

    Splatoon makes an appearance towards the end of the trailer, notably in a large stadium for what must be an esports event. If you look closely, you may notice some details in the Splatoon gameplay shown that do not appear in the current release of the game.

    The Nintendo Switch will be in stores in March 2017~

      Yup definetely some new stuff coming! Sorry for Potato Quality!

      I noticed that while it may just be because it's a trailer,
      it seems like the formation the team spawns in is different.
    3. SpillProff
      This is all I can really gather from the footage shown in the trailer:
      • New Hairstyles (more customizability)
      • New/Custom Gear (more gear, probably allowed to make your own)
      • New/Custom Weapons (more weapons, probably allowed to make your own)
      • New Spawn-Plate (different type of spawning and spawn-plate thingy)
      • New Poses (different poses, probably change according to what weapon/customized pose)
      • New Map(s) (Of course new maps, why not? Probably will have old maps remastered with new things)
      • New Form of Squid (SplatoonJP twitter said it themselves)
      Now these are my predictions/questions:
      • Splatfest again? (maybe? may not?)
      • Callie and Marie still there? (I don't know, could get replaced by children or other relatives)
      • Story Mode (possible multiplayer and singleplayer. I really hope multiplayer)
      • Lobby/Plaza (It isn't only you that can move. Everyone is allowed to walk around and interact with players)
      • New Weapon Types
      • Customizable Music (you can change the music if you want to)
      • Private Battle (Bots?)
      • Transfer Gear/Profile (able to transfer your gear and profile things from Splatoon Wii U to Splatoon Switch)

      But seriously, that green one with the headphones one makes me want to get this game so bad. AND LOOK AT THE PINK GIRL'S HAIRSTYLE!!! I am glad the Nintendo Switch is releasing near my birthday! I will be able to get this game!

      The hype is SO real right now!

      I really want Splatoon to embrace the "Switch" concept by letting players switch weapons throughout a match, specifically during a Ranked match. Imagine when you die, you can switch your weapon to adjust to the enemy team or cover a class your team needs covered.

      Wonder how the touch screen options will work with the 'normal' controller play?

      Bring hairstyles to Wii U or riot
      No doubt the game will be redesigned to accommodate a lack of touchscreen.
    8. Absolis
      That or the controllers will have motion capability. Which, given the Wii U gamepad, I really hope they do.
    9. Lyn
      Awesome! According to certain (fairly credible) sources, this appears to just be an updated port. Regardless I am excited!

      Wow so cool :D
