Today’s Nintendo Direct has given us some exciting new details on Splatoon 2! A new mode called Salmon Run is being introduced where four inklings are tasked with collecting Power and Golden Eggs. These eggs are received by defeating Chum and Steelheads in a wave-based horde mode. While the reward for this mode wasn’t shown, it’s said to be a very valuable one.
Splatoon 2 is also getting its own amiibo line with a new Inkling Girl, Boy, and Squid amiibo! By scanning these amiibo, your gear can be saved to the figure. New gear can be obtained from these figures as well. Previously released Splatoon amiibo will also be compatible with Splatoon 2.
Splatoon 2, along with its amiibo line, will launch for Nintendo Switch on July 21st!
