You do not need that app, friends can just join you in game, the app just invites them but they can search for your lobby or you theirs in game.

Just chat (and some other app-locked[?] features like purchasing certain clothing). The game uses a (locked or unlocked) room system for matchmaking, so friends can hop in without any app. Just have to let them know it's up, in person, through Messenger, phone call, Discord, the app, whatever.

That's what I thought it looked like. Good change, wish more games would stop showing kills/deaths so people will play the objective more.

You can actually change it in settings

Can display either death count or special

Splats are combined kills and assists now as well. Like eliminations in OW.

The first Splatoon game was so fantastic, it became my most played Wii U game. I'm sure it will also happen with the sequel. I've already added myself to the Friend Code List so I'm ready for some battles tomorrow.

I don't want to be spoiled much about the story mode, but have they fixed the Octarian's AI at all? I remember fighting them was a super anti-climax because they were dumb as rocks before. Felt worse than fighting the Space Pirates in the Metroid Prime games.

Still unsure if i am going to pick this up tomorrow. I cancelled my order last week because i just started the Zelda DLC and still enjoying Snake pass. And i need to save money. But i got that hankering as i'm just finishing things up on Zelda.

So i brought FF12 to have something meaty to focus on and play the other two in tandem... but ... i'm going to end up spending 80 on games when i didn't have to spend any aren't i?

Not trying to toot a horn; one friend literally told me that he doesn't want to play Ranked with me because of the enemies it pits us against. A horde mode is THE perfect answer. Always together, a scaling difficulty, and also just the thought of a hoard mode in a game so mobility-focused sounds fun!

League Battle should fix this too though. This is because instead of using your ranks to determine who you face off against, you do 7 placement matches each rotation to get a rating for your teamy.

Going by the fest this works way better than anything they tried in 1.

Have you managed to connect to any online games at all? As in, with other actual users in game? I had that issue until recently, and it was the DNS options on the Switch itself that needed amending.
