    Local offline multiplayer on one switch console would be nice.
    I have preordered it already but it would be a lot better that way.
    And as they put a gyro sensor in those overpriced little controllers there should be a way to achieve this.

    God, another Nintendo Direct about Splatoon 2. :-/ Wish they'd talk about other games.

    Didn't we get enough of this game during the E3?

    It's a fifty fifty chance that we get another splatfire (or whatever it's called) announced during the direct imo, because we already got one in March. However, arms got one last second a week or two before launch. I'm hoping so, I really enjoyed the original test fire back in March and it convinced me to pre order Splatoon 2.

    What is this the 4th Splatoon 2 direct? They don't need to nail their stupid gameplay decisions into my head anymore.

    Salmon Run is only available to play sometimes like splatfests, still forced to play the same 2 maps for hours on end instead of just voting, no local salmon run, and other poor online and offline structure decisions. Don't worry Nintendo, I dont need anymore convincing, I'm not buying it.

    I hope, I wasn't able to get a switch till may 31st so I never got to try the test fire, and I never got to getting a wii u so I never got to try splatoon much on there, though I got a little bit in and helped crush team callie...#TeamMarie 4 life, but only a couple of rounds :/

    haha yeah. i got my switch in late may too! so i now how you feel! I really just wanna see what all this "splatoon love" is all about. plus i find the whole premise of matches unique.

    Yeah i am hoping that they hold another testfire since hopefully it will interest me enough to pick up the game for switch.

    Hey, we have that Mario x rabbids direct to look forward to whenever it happens (at least it very likely will happen)... That's exciting, right guys?

    That looks too repetitive with the same enemies, imo. If only Ubisoft would release a demo on the eShop then maybe it'd make me want to pre-order it.

    Not really, GoNNER is good for a hundred hours or so on its own. Great portable game. Now we need Dead Cells and Nex Machina.

    I am actually pretty hype for that one. It's like XCOM-lite, but with a bigger focus on weapon variation. The movement abilities are cool and the game doesn't waste your time with overly-long animations. Naturally, I hope for a hard mode.
