Show your true colours

Splatter enemies and claim your turf as the ink-spewing, squid-like characters called Inklings in Nintendo's new third-person action shooter game for the Wii U console. Challenge your friends in chaotic four-on-four matches, in which the goal is to get your ink on as many places as possible and claim your turf, all while strategically submerging yourself in your team's colours and blasting your enemies. This is a colourful and chaotic online third-person action shooter, exclusively on Wii U.

Features:
•Team up and take on other teams in an action-filled battle to cover the level with as much ink as possible. Spray walls to access hard-to-reach areas.
•Covering more territory with ink unlocks powered-up super weapons that can be used to attack rivals or cover more turf.
•Strategy is everything. Defeat enemies to splatter them in an explosion of ink, covering more turf for your team. But choose wisely: Players who only go after the enemy might find their turf redecorated in their enemies' colours.
•Refill ink tanks, hide from opponents, or move faster by turning into a squid and diving into the ink with the tap of a button.
•Select between multiple control options on the Wii U GamePad controller, including using gyroscopic controls to look around, allowing for better aiming and control.
•Hop online and battle in four-on-four matches.

Can you link to an article that describes the local player you have mentioned? I cannot find anything about it and it would mean an instant purchase for me.

I think I misread it... there was talk of a 4 player local team taking on other 4 player teams during development. Oops.

My son (12) has it and is addicted. Just waiting for the newest update but he loves playing it and (as an outside observer) it looks like there is a lot to it.

Yeah... thought it was too good to be true... So the new mode allows friends to join a group online to play together.

cool, are all the updates free?
At this rate, how long do people think before this reaches sub £15 or even £10?? Too many games unopened at present....
? Online prices towards launch day were about £25. At this rate it'll be years before £10

Never. Nintendo games do not depreciate like others. This was £25 at launch.
I was about to buy this game until I looked at the 2 player controls. You have to join the pro controller to a wii mote so you get proper aiming, seems like such an oversight with wii controllers. Think I'll pass.

​eh? That's an incredibly odd reason to pass. You're avoiding this game solely because of the control scheme for the local 2-player mode that's nowhere near being the primary focus of a game with an addictive online multiplayer and a short but highly enjoyable single player mode? And even then, the control scheme you've pictured is solely to enable motion controls for the 2nd player.

ok... It's your money but I think you're missing out
