    With the massive success of splatoon in Japan (over 1.2 million copies) It is getting it's own manga adaptation to be released on February, 29, 2016. For those who don't know a manga is the Japanese version of a comic book. Well, that is one of the simplest ways I can describe it. There is yet to be a word on a western translation for all us SquidKids in cowboy hats but I be curios if there was. I am also curios if there will maybe one day be a splatoon Anime adaptation since Nintendo said they wanted to lend out their IP more.

    Has potential. Guess we'll see where they go with it.

    My guess is they will adapt single player mode on to paper. Who knows though!

    Great news, I love all this "Splatoon fever" in Japan. I just think that at some point they will need to create some protagonists with names and distinguishing traits, you can only go so far with the generic Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl.

    Hoping for Splatoon anime soon :)
