Most Anticipated Nintendo Games Still to Come in 2017

Most Anticipated Nintendo Games Still to Come in 2017

Splatoon 2 launches on July 21 for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo hasn't given many details about Nintendo Switch Online, but it will launch to players for free later this year, but will later cost an annual fee of $19.99.

Nintendo's new app, called Nintendo Switch Online, acts as a central hub for all app-compatible games. SplatNet 2 will be part of an upcoming mobile app created to give the Switch some of the multiplayer features (voice chat, lobby making, etc.) that it's now missing.

In addition to stage schedules, SplatNet 2 will display information like player stats and gear, as well as a player's Lifetime Inkage, which compares the amount of turf a player has covered in ink to locations in the real world. As Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently revealed, the company is looking to learn as much as possible about the app before launching the paid version in 2018. It will only work with Splatoon 2 at launch, allowing access to SplatNet 2 as well. Just how fresh are you? All Splatoon amiibo also reward exclusive gear, and can be used to save gear and weapon loadouts.

"The app will let you chat with friends in your online lobby before your game begins, then talk to your teammates to coordinate strategy once the game begins", the announcement says.

You can play this mode as a Ranked Battle and if you have the skills you will be awarded with a medal within the game. Find out what stages are coming up! Summer 2017 gets players into some wild fun with Splatoon 2, the sequel to the hit third-person, team-based shooter.
