    Well, that is the question: Do you think you will be able to pre-downlaod Splatoon, like Smash Bros? I honestly do not see why not, but who knows.

    No need to think, pre-loading is already confirmed.

    For the record, yes, I plan to pre-load the game. I'm kind of a night owl anyway, so I wanna be playing as soon as possible. The time the local GameStop opens is right in the middle of when I'm normally asleep, so trying to buy a retail copy would mess me up for the next week.

    I'm going to be getting a physical copy (Love my boxes) so I'm likely gonna be at most a day behind, but oh well.

    I think I am going to get this game digitally. I have a ton of eshop cash so I might as well use it. The game also probably favors having quick access to it as oppose to having to open a disc case and exhange disc.

    So to answer the question, yes I'm pre-downloading Splatoon. Not to mention be able to play immediately would be nice at launch.

    Probably. Maybe. If they give us more information that makes the game seem worth a AAA $60 price-point, definitely. Otherwise it's just a maybe.

    I would download it, but 1. Since I got Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze from Club Nintendo, it took up 10GB of my whopping 32GB Wii U system, of which you only really get 27GB, and added up to all other games I have on it, I now have ~600MB left on it so nah that's not happening, and 2. I have GCU with Best Buy so I can get 20% off buying a new physical copy :)

    To be fair, a game like that I'd want physical anyways in case I wanted to take it over to a friend's house or to an event and for whatever God forsaken reason they didn't have their own copy, or, in a more depressing circumstance, their copy was damaged/lost/stolen or whatever.

    I really want to play as soon as the servers open, but I think I'm going to grab a physical copy from the store this time. The box art looks great :eek:

    I want to pre-download so bad! But the box art looks so good! But I want to play at midnight! But the eShop servers might crash!

    OMFG HELP ME PLEASE ;-;

    EDIT: Nah, I'm getting it pre-downloaded. Not worth my time at Gamestop. :l

    Going to buy a physical copy as well, just like Smash Bros and Mario Kart 8. I just prefer it over downloading it, it feels more accomplishing to have the box in your hands after waiting so long.

    If the servers didn't crash for the Smash WiiU launch I doubt they will crash for Splatoon :p

    I kind of wish I had gone with the box copy of smash though, the game takes up so much space on my drive and if I had gone to the store in the morning I probably could have picked up a Gamecube adapter that day as well instead of spending the weekend hunting for one :confused:
