Splatoon 2 Releases June 21; New Mode and Amiibo Revealed

The upcoming Nintendo Direct conference will focus on two exclusives for the Nintendo Switch: ARMS and Splatoon 2.

The cooperative first-person shooter allows up to four players to participate in heists and steal the most cash to upgrade weapons and customize skills.

The tech giant is also expected to release more info about other 3DS releases, though the focus will mainly be about the aforementioned games.

That polish presumably includes the new modes the game will have, too, one of which was revealed today- Salmon Run, which is a co-op horde mode for the game.

Chicago judge shot, killed outside his home
While the incident possibly started as an attempted robbery, police said nothing was taken from the judge or the woman. The other driver punched him in the face, causing serious injuries, according to court records cited in the newspaper.

But in the process, Nintendo wants to ensure everyone buys Switch games rather than having the temptation of downloading them illegally, so a bounty is up for grabs.

And yes, there will of course be new amiibo on the same day. The old amiibo are supported as well, and tapping them to the NFC reader spawns that character in game to befriend. Previously released amiibo will work with Splatoon 2, but there will also be a brand new series consisting of three new figures. Especially with a basic FPS game that's so easy to get into. As you grow closer, they can randomly give you a special reward, which includes unique looks and more.

When "ARMS" was first announced, many gaming fans assumed that the video game would be a launch title for the Switch, but it was given a cryptic "spring" release instead. Let us know in the comments section below.
