Prototypes are the same as the sold ones since quite some time.
The Splatoon amiibo figures are really well made in retail too. I don't think cartoonish-looking amiibo figures have aesthetic troubles in general.
OH MY WORD! Its a new character!
Is what I thought when I first saw this image, but alas, its just an advertisement from the squid world.
This does tickle my curiosity, but apparently its not anything too significant.
Nintendo of Europe streamed the ESL Splatoon Tournament Grand Finals today, and Nogami got on stream to announce a new map called Humpback Pump Track.
It's an indoor BMX map that's pretty sizeable. Might be Blackbelly Skatepark spiritual successor.
Though with just two maps, one brand-new main weapon and a single game type, we're left with as many questions as answers. Happily, Nogami is able to answer some of them, including the reason behind the team's decision to limit the map rotation to two at a time. ”We feel that part of the gameplay is actually selecting which weapons would be best for that combination of two maps," he explains. ”In Splatoon 2, the maps rotate every two hours, so it'll be a much faster cycle than the previous game."
So there seems to be a Splatoon 2 article in the latest EDGE magazine including another Nogami interview and someone brought this to my attention:
Nogami confirms that map rotations will be two hours in Splatoon 2 instead of the four hours we had in Splatoon 1. Another great change imo. More map types and game modes throughout the day! If someone wanted to make a new thread on this I guess then by all means, go for it.
Thank god. Now if they make Squad and Ranked have different rotations, or even have separate playlists for the different modes whether they stay exclusive to ranked or not, my primary complaint about the first game will be completely fixed.
Personally I would add an unranked rotating playlist that cycles through the non TW modes, and Squads, Ranked and this unranked playlist would all be on separate map and mode cycles. You can join friends in the unranked playlist just as you can in the TW playlist and teams are randomized just like in TW.
Going full indie/yuppee​/hipster. Love it. The shop for these clothes should be a thrift store.
