Nintendo details Splatoon 2's single player and announces free ARMS content post release

If you have not noticed by now, I flipping love my Nintendo Switch, and the more I play it, the more I cannot wait for the future of the console/portable hybrid. I am living for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe right now, and I am sitting patiently waiting for Splatoon 2. Well, this morning I woke up to the news of new Splatoon 2 content being the single player, as well as new ARMS character reveals. If you are still on the fence about the Switch, please reevaluate your choices, as Nintendo proved that the console sure has a lot in store for us. 

First off is the brand new Splatoon 2 trailer that really came out of nowhere. Nintendo hosted an ARMS direct but snuck in a little single player trailer for the upcoming ink shooter. Up to now the single-player portion of the game has been a mystery, this after I expressed how awesome the multiplayer mode was when the global testfire took place. At least we now know that the game will have a solid single-player offering. 

The trailer, which you can see below, shows off some rather epic levels to explore in a Super Mario 3D World-styled gameplay. The original Splatoon had a great single player mode, so the sequel will clearly follow in its footsteps. 

Last, but not least we have the ARMS Direct, which was a 20-minute stream showing off all sorts of new content for the game. The stream gave us some insight to the game's lore, but the most important part of the stream was the announcement of free content that Nintendo will be releasing post release. Nintendo announced that they will be giving all players of the game free characters, levels and other content once the game releases on 16 June 2017. Along with the announcement, the stream also showed off some new fighter's and their abilities, as well as a global "Testpunch", which will take place in May into June. This will be the best opportunity to get your hands on the game and take part in a limited-timed event, very similar to the Splatoon 2 event. 

The first event will start on 27 May and continue to 28 May. The following week on 3 and 4 June, the event will return. So you have four days to get your taste of the new game. If you have been somewhat interested in ARMS, then the stream I found was very informative. It explained the basic combat, and basically explained the game in general. Watch the full stream below. ARMS is set for release on 16 June 2017, and Splatoon 2 releases the month later on 21 July.
