    Heya squids, today I saw a video that made me hyped so bad. SPLATOON 2 SINGLE PLAYER!!




    I am literally HYPED for this and I can't wait. Only 2 more months!!

    ---
    ANALYSIS

    So in the beginning we get our main Squid-Kid walking around the all new place of Inkopolis Square! Looking very fresh!

    [​IMG]

    But wait a minute: If we look to the side we see- can it be?! It's Marie!!
    [​IMG]

    She's wearing the same outfit from the first trailer (very nice btw), and she's standing in the spot usually Captain Cuttlefish would be, but by the Squid Sisters stories, he and Callie are gone and now it seems she's looking for help against the Octarians. So naturally, we'll follow her.

    [​IMG]

    We then appear in a new location, it looks similar to the last Octovalley, but not quite.

    She talks to us about her needed help against the Octarians, but there's just one problem:

    When she introduces herself, it seems that we don't know her!

    [​IMG]

    Possibly this is because either the Squid Sisters popularity died out OR because we're a new Squid Kid in Inkopolis, or possibly both, or possibly neither...

    Alright now time for the battle!!

    ~ OCTO VALLEY ~

    CHECK OUT THIS FRESH NEW HERO OUTFIT!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The outfit is completely different from Splatoon 1, not to mention this gun is something we've never seen nor been introduced to before. The weapon also reminds me of the P90. Gotta say, these squids know their fashion.

    [​IMG]

    Here's a glimpse of one of the stages from the campaign mode. Quite nice, isn't it? Reminds me a bit of Mahi Mahi Resort.

    And it looks like we got some new perks that comes with these stages!
    [​IMG]
    Not sure what these are called, but they do increase your jump and make you bounce!

    [​IMG]

    Then we have this speed boost conveyer belt, gotta go fast!

    [​IMG]


    And now you can ride on POLES! It looks like a machine in the front is creating the pole as you ride it, or I may just be going crazy due to my hype.


    ~ OCTARIANS ~

    Now let's take a look at these Octarians!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Looks like there's going to be loads new Octarians in this game! All with different abilities and different mechanics, but most importantly, different difficulties.

    We'll even have some new bosses up in this JOINT, here's a picture of one them:

    [​IMG]

    Lastly your favorite Octolings are back! Looking more evil than usual might I add.

    [​IMG]

    hey defiantly got a gear upgrade, not to mention a WEAPON upgrade, no more Octoshots for this Octoling!

    ~ HERO WEAPONS ~

    And now for something exciting, HERO WEAPONS!!!

    If this is anything like the last Splatoon game, Then these may be from the Amiibos, however, Nintendo states that:

    So this may be a option to just change what ever weapon you want for the Campaign mode.

    [​IMG]

    Hero Slosher

    [​IMG]

    Hero Dualies

    [​IMG]

    Hero Blaster

    [​IMG]

    Hero Splatling

    Here's just a FEW of the new weapons, but we can also see a hero octobrush coming and more! (Couldn't get a picture of it though :c)

    ~ CONCLUSION ~

    Looks like that brings us to the end of the trailer, hope you all enjoyed reading and remember

    Stay Fre-

    No.....wait........something's not right

    I think- and this is my mere guess based on observation, that weapons are level specific? Think how the amiibo challenges worked. I believe this because of how Sheldon drops you a weapon at the start of a level. And in one part we see him mentioning wanting you to use a said weapon so that he could gather some data. Makes me think he's giving you orders on what to use, and where. He is the weapons expert after all.

    Even if thats the case, I'm still excited for the variety. I got tired of using the main generic gun VERY quickly in the first games Hero Mode. This should easily fix that issue!

    (That I'm just excited for brush and roller usage in the levels- Booyah!)

    I did notice that too, actually, upon reviewing the video...
    Not too sure how that would work, but I'm assuming it's so the player can get some experience with each type and then choose a favourite for online?

    Splatoon 1's story mode was training for online competition. I'm getting the same vibe here. Introducing players to every weapon type is a great idea that'll help newbies find their niche that much faster.

    aw yeah, i really liked the single player campaign of splatoon 1 for different reasons.
    seeing there will be big stages, different weapon types and more gimmicks/enemys.
    I'm looking forward to it.

    on another note: i'm hoping it will have some 'post-game' content giving it more replay value.

    I'm so hyped. I revisited the Sploon 1 campaign yesterday after watching. The new one already looks a lot more varied, refined, and fast-paced. I really do love the first game's campaign too but it is really just a glorified tutorial. I think this is looking to be a lot more fleshed out.

    Plus that poster artwork is sooo... ominous. Callie wat r u doin

    Not sure how many people noticed this about the trailer with how much else was revealed in it, but here's a tiny add on for an analysis of it only found in the Japanese version of it:

    Even though it's kind of redundant after the Octarian version, the seemingly newer "3D" logo is seen at the very end:
    [​IMG]
    I already made this tracing of it if anyone wants it:

    This trailer made me so hyped, but I still want to find out more.
