What is Splatoon?
Splatoon is a 3rd person shooter video game franchise created by Hisashi Nogami that is developed and owned by the company Nintendo, the first game being released on the Wii U with the latter sequel and threequel games being released onto the Nintendo switch and Nintendo switch oled. The game takes place in a post apopcalyptic world inhabited by anthro marine life, mostly centered on the evolved cephalopods, Inklings (squids) and Octolings (octopuses), both species can willingly tranform between 'kid' and 'swim' form which are main mechanics in splatoon's gameplay. The game itself is a 4v4 3rd person shooter where inklings and octolings engage in turf war battles with their ink, the main objective to cover as much area as possible.
I got into splatoon quite late back in 2021 when I first got my switch due to the reveal of Splatoon 3. I've never had much nostalgia for the series due to not owning a Wii U as well so I never got to experience the first splatoon, however I started getting quite curious about the franchise due to the hype around a new game so I looked into a couple of gameplays of the series and finally got splatoon 2 + the octo expansion for myself to play. After playing for quite a few months now I can say splatoon is definitely one of my fave nintendo franchises/games in general, I normally don't play a lot of game especially competitive multiplayer shooters but I had so much fun just playing regular turf war, ranked and story modes and now I really wish I had been able to play the first game and live through innitial splatoon 2 hype/splatfests. My first ever splatfest I have participated in so far was the splatoon 3 demo testfire, rock vs paper vs scissors (I was team scissors).
Right now as I am writing this, I am awaiting to get a copy (digital or physical idc) of splatoon 3 I need it so bad I want it so bad it looks so fun (rip to the Aerospray PG not returning in the 3rd game though)
Fave & Main weapons
The Carbon Roller Deco used to be my main weapon when I started playing till I switched to using the Aerospray PG! I mostly stick to shooters or rollers but I also really enjoy the splat dualies.
