Splatoon 2 Part of Nintendo’s Plan to “Invigorate the Competitive Gaming Scene”

At a recent investors meeting, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima talked about Splatoon 2 as being part of Nintendo’s foreray into the competitive gaming scene. We all remember when Splatoon 2 was first spotted back in the October reveal, being shown off in a mock up of a competitive gaming environment. Apparently this game, among others, are part of a long view plan to infiltrate the competitive gaming scene. Here is what he said during the meeting:

“Splatoon 2 in particular will offer voice chat, a much-requested feature from our overseas fans, using smart-devices and the ability to bring eight Nintendo Switch systems together for eight-person local multiplayer. In this way, we are working to create titles and environments to invigorate the competitive gaming scene so that a wider demographic of customers can enjoy, talk about, and continue playing the Nintendo Switch.”
