New Splatoon 2 Screenshots Show Off a Map Called “Barnacle’s Sports Club”

Are you a kid or a squid? Alright, so that catchphrase may no longer apply to Splatoon 2, but it seems appropriate to bring it up as we get a new map shown off for the game thanks to the official Japanese Twitter Account. The map appears to be based upon a sports club atmosphere, or at least, an extreme sports one with all the rock climbing hints everywhere. It’s tentatively titled “Barnacle’s Sports Club” in Japan, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see this name completely changed for the English version of the game to match up more with the puntastic ways of the original Splatoon.

Have a gander at the screenshots below. Do you plan to pick up Splatoon 2 this summer?
