Not possible? How so?

I think the only part that's taken from Miiverse is the 'drawing' ink; the splats that make it up would be a mask placed over it by the game which would enable it to blend with the game world. That, I think, would be wholly possible
Miiverse doesn't have shading options like that.

The one on the right doesn't have shading like the one on the left.

Maybe you're right and there is a mask/templates that you can toggle, then the one on the left should be possible.

I don't think it's user controlled. I suspect there's just spots built into the level designed to have random Miiverse posts pasted into them, with appropriate masking to make it blend appropriately with the level.

The one on the left has no shading at all.

It is really obvious that the drawing is only the thick looking stylus drawn blue lines, that are under a transparent 'splat' decal.

What, I thought the game was 17 GB, not 1.7... Well, I only hope the soundtrack isn't like... 10 tracks at most. At any rate, that is (most likely) good news, since now I don't need to buy a HDD until Xenocross comes out then.
Super Mario 3D World was 1.7GB and they released a 2CD soundtrack for it ....

Welcome to Nintendo.

Splatoon Gashapon toys have been announced. There is a scan which I can't post, but I also found this item page, maybe somebody can translate it. From the scan it looks like they are squid keyrings.

ガチマッチの詳細を報告しよう。
ステージ全体を塗り合うナワバリバトルとは異なり、限られた面積のエリアを奪い合うルールが「ガチエリア」だそうだ。
エリアはステージの中央にあり、自チームのインクで大半を塗ると占拠することができるそうだ。
https://twitter.com/SplatoonJP/status/584998777750028288
両チームは最初に100ずつのカウントを持っている。
エリアを占拠している間、そのチームのカウントが減っていき、先に0にしたチームの勝ちとなる。
ちなみに、5分経過した場合は、残りカウントが少ないチームの勝利となるらしい。
https://twitter.com/SplatoonJP/status/584999001381974017
占拠しているチームはカウントを減らすためにエリアを守らねばならず、もう一方のチームは一刻も早くエリアを奪い返さなければならない。
エリアを巡って激しい攻防が繰り広げられ、積極的に相手を倒さなければバトルに勝利することはできない。

Those are some fantastic GIFs above. This game looks too fun.

I just realized something. Does anyone know if it's possible to play online only on the gamepad? I doubt it, but I currently don't have a TV, and I was hoping to be able to play at launch with everyone else. My brother's gonna get a head start on me. D;

ガチマッチには「ウデマエ」という指標があるらしい。
「C-」から「A+」まで9段階あり、バトルの勝敗によって上下する。
つまり、ウデマエが高いヤツほど「強い」ということだ。
ちなみに、対戦はウデマエが近いもの同士で行われるそうだ。
https://twitter.com/SplatoonJP/status/585020149863821312

なお、ガチマッチにはランク10になって初めて参加資格が与えられるそうだ。
「ランク」はレギュラー・ガチを問わずバトルで稼ぐポイントで上がる、言わば「経験」を表す指標だ。
まずはレギュラーバトルで経験を積んで、テクニックを磨くことだ。

So you need 100(?) rating points in order to move on to the next rank and C- is the lowest rank and the rank everyone starts at?

That player was the top of their team and their team won the match, so that player received +20 rating points, I think.

This image has two separate square areas that are its splat zones. Maybe you have to get both zones to get points.

The eShop page that was put up early mentioned Off-TV Play, but we don't know how accurate it is.

It'll definitely support Off-TV for singleplayer. Simply because it supports Two-Screen Multiplayer for Battle Dojo already with gyro controls intact. The only reason online might not support it is the quick travel touch UI.

But you have to level up to the C- rank. Everyone starts at lvl 1 and must pass lvl10 to get into rank battles .

Any word on if the DLC will be offered digitally for those who can't get the amiibos?
No word yet.
My guess is that the amiibo costumes stay exclusive to them, but there will be an abundance of other DLC costumes released after launch, similarly to Smash 4 ($0.79 per costume).
