Following Switch’s Splatoon 2 Release, The Series Will Receive An Online Anime Series

Despite being one of Nintendo’s newest franchise, Splatoon has already become one of its most popular, particularly in Japan. The Inklings have gone on to star in their own manga series, and Squid Sisters Callie and Marie even held a live concert at the Japanese gaming event Niconico Tokaigi last year. Now, an anime inspired by the franchise is set to premiere next month.

The Japanese magazine CoroCoro has announced it will be airing a Splatoon anime on its YouTube channel (via Japanese Nintendo). The animated adaptation will be based on CoroCoro’s monthly manga series, which follows a team of Blue Inklings as they take part in Turf Wars against other teams. The anime premieres on August 12.

Splatoon 2‘s first Splatfest event took place this weekend and saw Team Ice Cream defeat Team Cake in the debut competition. It also provided us with a glimpse at the game’s distinctly Nintendo-style warning, which appears to people who repeatedly disconnect during online matches. Other details about the game were revealed in a recent Nintendo Direct broadcast.

Splatoon 2 releases exclusively for Nintendo Switch this week, on July 21. The Nintendo Switch Online mobile app will roll out alongside it and allow players to voice chat with friends and view a stat-tracking service called SplatNet 2. GameSpot will have a full review of Splatoon 2 tomorrow.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
