SPLATOON JAPAN TIME CONFIRMED
>Hey, guys! If you’re cephalopod crazy like me, you probably already know this, but in case not, here’s a cool little factoid. Squids actually have really sharp beaks, almost like birds. They’ve got some pretty crazy-looking teeth too. Don’t believe me? Try searching the Internet for “squid teeth.” Freaky, right? Now take a look at this new image we just received. Looks like the mystery squid creatures have some pretty crazy chompers too!
>Certain types of squids can walk upright on land
I was hoping they would change colors to confuse the opposing team for a while because yknow.. chromatophores.
Like spy from TF2. Do we even have classes or are there different items only?
>search youtube for "squid walking on land"
>minecraft, terraria, and walking dead
>a few videos of octopus walking on land
>Did you know there are certain types of squids that can walk upright on land by using their tentacles as legs? This allows them to climb palm trees and harvest coconuts, which they roll into the ocean and use as flotation devices when they get tired of swimming. Truly a fascinating spectacle to witness if you ever get the chance!
Octopi are never asleep.
Remember that, squid
Tumblr eh? That kind of confirms what I thought. I suspect NoA wanted to just use a similar twitter account, but the 140 character limit is harsher in English than in Japanese.
>Didn't translate the "The hat makes her look kind of cute... what am I saying? She's a squid!" tweet
They didn't even post the artwork.
Don't tell me they have a problem with calling the squid girl cute.
This is some JSR shit. I approve.
>no way to be interested in this game unless you wanna fuck the squids, right?
Have to disagree.
Seems to be a colorful and fun TPS with some interesting Gameplay mechanics.
The squid girls are a nice extra though.
It was a WIP when I posted that drawing, have the finished one.
See these scars that this whale and other whales have?
Those are caused by fights from giant squid biting and clawing them that they encounter in the depths
Holy shit does this suit give me a boner.
I hope they do shit like that. It will keep smash going strong and promote new games that need it.
Regardless expect Amiibos to unlock tons of costumes for your inkling.
>giant squid are so big they HUNT fuck huge sperm whales
Squids love video games. Just look.
I'm laughing uncontrollably and I'm not sure why.
>#dubious squid fatcs (sic)

At worst. They could have said she was "cute.. for a squid" or something.
Not posting the rest of the tweet or the artwork is even stranger.
>Pitch black survival horror level with
angler fish and goblin sharks
Soon. We can splatoon games in every genre.
>they shoot black ink only they can travel through
>doesnt reflect light so it really fucks your senses and distorts the level
>1 hit kill
>they move twice as fast
>its also timed
>/v/'s collective face when Sakurai steps in to head the project and boots out the other guy
>"Have you ever ruined a game?"
this is my fetish
shame about the blowjobs though
Sometimes.. A squid just needs some space.
>kidnapped electric catfish!
THAT FUCKING CAT ISN'T A CAT. IT'S A GODDAMN CATFISH.
Doesn't mean it can't happen.
You just need to be careful and trust your inkling girl anon.
It's Age of Empires 2 and history class all over again.
They are preparing us for the squid invasion
Oh fuck me. I thought it was talking the cat referee, since ya know, cat. And the fact the everything in this game does not seem to look what it's called. The inklings, for example, are simply said to be squids, even though they look like people.
>I really hope this games final boss is Cthulhu
Maybe a mechanical version built by the octo army.
>there are people who don't know why tumblr's hated
Enjoy your low quality images.
guys, I want to play splatoon now
>spreading ink around
>not cleaning that shit up
Great. Thanks anon.
>being this slow
At least try bumping with an image, anon.
In general. I think Splatoon will be much easier to pick up and play compared to a fighting game like skullgirls.
>tfw genuinely excited for the new gameplay concepts
>tfw everyone just calls you a pedo for being interested in it
>Hopefully it becomes something like
A lot of people don't know how intellegent Cephalopods are. Octopuses can open a jar with a clam or mussel in it along with escaping their tanks even when shut tightly. They don't live too long, but they're damn clever.
Hope they don't evolve any further.
Have some inkling and octo expressions.
Well ever single of the hundreds if nit thousands of suction cups the squids have, hold a big fucking claw/teeth thing that has like little claws around and each one of the moves in a semi circle to hold so just image that around you
>you will play as a squid in your lifetime
And it only took squids taking over the world to get it
I got told this story by a Seaworld employee.
>One day, fish are disappearing for nor reason
>the staff can't think of what could be happening; they checked the tanks and the missing fish weren't anywhere
>they set up a camera to see what is happening
>they come back and see what the camera has discovered
>after closing time, the resident Octopus escapes when nobody is around
>it removes the lid to its cage, crawls out of the water all the way to the other tanks, then reaches in and eats the valuable fish
>then it goes back into its tank
>and slides the lid back on like nothing happened
Needless to say they made the lid more secure after that.
It wasn't like the octopus wasn't being fed enough or anything either it was just a greedy fucker.
Meanwhile. The octopi from Splatoon want to escape the underworld and take over the world above that they desire so much.
Hopefully this game will be a precursor to more deep sea games.
Well if you don't mind me playing doubles advocate for a moment, Splatoon is aimed at children too isn't it?
Like nearly all Nintendo games, it's aimed at everyone, including children.
This. They want to use social media, there's no way you're translating a Japanese tweet and keeping it to 140 characters without throwing out half of the content.
Fucking kanji, man. We use twitter for microblogging; Elevens can use it to tweet a fucking book.
You have a point. But MLP is literally aimed at little girls. Hence why the toys come with little brushes to brush their hair. Its like arguing that a Ken doll that comes with a shaver to shave his face isn't aimed at boys.
I am in no way attracted to squid loli, this looks like the coolest and most fun game to come out in years, I haven't been this excited for a game in half a decade
We probably won't be getting milf inklings.. right?
>Its like arguing that a Ken doll that comes with a shaver to shave his face isn't aimed at boys.
You're not seriously suggesting that Barbie's boyfriend is aimed at boys are you
>No need to project.
That's the least projecting I've ever seen. Do you even know what that word means?
Anyway, in the end it doesn't matter if it was directed to a specific demographic. As long as the product is good, then why should you care if you're not "supposed" to enjoy it?
Oh shit I guess you are right: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugWmE5Nkj3g
Well in any case it couldn't have sold well.
Yes. Project mean you project your feelings onto someone else. Why would I be in question about my sexuality when I don't even watch MLP? Since you are defending MLP I am assuming you watch the show which it seems like you are projection your feelings onto me.
Powerpuff girls was, too, and everyone liked that. The show is pretty good for a modern cartoon, from what I hear. The problem isn't people loving the show so much, it's forcing it into every aspect of everything. It's fine to like something, but when you try to shove it into every little thing, it becomes both annoying and embarrassing.
Only when you love squid anon
>We’ve just received this new sketch from one of our junior field researchers. Apparently the octopus army has built a massive weapon somewhere deep in their underground lair, and it sounds like they’re powering it with one of the kidnapped electric catfish! It’ll surely take quite an effort to defeat that bad boy and save the poor little fishy.
This is a little more revealing than the Japanese tweet. It's clear that there's more than one catfish, and it sounds like the objective of each level will be to rescue one.
I kind of hope there's a bit more story and character to that than just Power Star collection, though, what with all of the DEEPEST LORE tweets.
No, but if anything is to be expected is for r34s of the Splatoons to quintuple the second it comes out.
I'd really like to know the statistics of r34s of games before-after their release. That's some master thesis shit right there
Hello shota squid.
I think most people kinda forgot you existed.
They're both Nintendo franchises. Now, if I were, say, hanging around at Starbucks like the douche I am, and I started telling everyone that some drink on the menue reminds me of Splatoon and that the place should be called "Squidbucks", then I went on YouTube and asked for my fellow squidbros to bro-tentacle me, it would be like what the ponyfags do.
That picture is clever reference. Pony versions of random characters is forced shit.
I don't know why that's such a big fuckin' deal to everyone all of a sudden. 40K fans have been doing that shit for years and nobody whines about it. Plus half the time it's just some silly crossover fanart or some shit that gets autists bent out of shape.
>Pony versions of random characters is forced shit.
No, they are fans of two different things to combine them. You know, something called a fucking crossover? That has existed since before mlp existed?
Yandere inkling girl would be more amusing
I think you posted the wrong picture, anon.
I think that the 40K idiots are obnoxious. too.
It's not so much the crossovers as the lack of creativity, combined with the aforementioned forcing. Combine two characters? Okay, sure. Make a character in another show's style? Of course, why not? Literally dedicate yourself to simply recoloring an existing character and calling it crossover art? It's as bad as, if not worse than, Sonic OC crap.
See, that's the Sonic problem. OCs for the sonic universe, if you ask me, aren't a problem. The fact that every retard just recolors an existing character and slaps on an extra tail or a scar somewhere shows a distinct lack of effort or thought.
It's not near as prominent with 40k
Even then 40k at least has a good amount of depth, and things to discuss, but I still dont see near as many people obsessed with 40k as there are with FIM
Personally I dont get bent outta shape about it, but it is still both perplexing and obnoxious how obsessive the fanbase is.
I mean seriously, they seem to be incapable of interacting with anything not pony related, and so many have fallen into it.
I just dont understand, the show isn't that good
>nintendo uses tumblr
God damn. Are they really so cash strapped that they can't afford a website for it themselves?
Like we are doing right now.
And we are doing it for free.
>It's sad really.
>I need my squidboy love too.
I once requested a pic of the squid girls bullying a shota squid for his lack of popularity.
Sadly. Never got it.
I'm hoping I can trade in my Wii and some of its games so I can get a Wii U.
Nintendo has some really neat titles this time round.
Hopefully the information will start to spike up a bit
Also what the fuck is going on with the captchas?
>sexy adult octopus boss.
Seen one or two mature inkling girl fanarts
No mature octo girls at all.
Almost as disappointing as a shota squid.
>Unlocks Inkling as playble character in smash
I would buy it. Would also like to see an inkling in Smash. Unlikely of course. But still.
>$12 character DLC
I would buy it anyway just to have a squid loli on my desk
No need to worry, both Wonder Red and a Splatoon character are all but confirmed for Smash 5. And they way Amiibos are going, I'd say most Nintendo multiplayer games from here out will feature them
>we have to wait 8 years to play as wonder red and inklings in smash
>I'll nearly be 30 by the time the next smash comes out
>Wonder Red and a Splatoon character are all but confirmed for Smash 5
Smash 5 is far away. People might stop caring by then. That's why they are wanted as DLC.
Also. Wonderful 101 was kinda a flop saleswise from what I heard. Doubt it will have a playable character ever.
I really hope this fucker is in the game.
I mean, his name fits the game for fucks sake.
How long has it been since you've seen this image, anon?
Skipping the "cute" inkling girl artwork >>275801285 and tweet is inexcusable though
They better fix that.
