Splatoon 2 inks July 21 release, new 4 player co-op mode revealed

Nintendo announced that Splatoon 2 will release on the Switch on July 21st. It will also feature a new 4 player co-op horse mode called Salmon Run.

The game will also get three new Amiibos, a new Inkling Girl and Boy as well as a Squid.

There was a testfire demo for the game last month, on March 24-26, and the online play seemed to run smooth as possible for a game still four months away.

Splatoon 2 certainly could have released later in the summer, I was fearing as late as August so thankfully the game is coming out before school is back in session.
