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.

Essential for any Wii U owner. Keep coming back to this because of how unpredictable it is!

bargain for under £20

finally ordered since i'll have time to play next week

90 hours in and i'm still playing, great game and a terrific price for what is now a fully featured game.

That's what I call, a fantasy deal

I'll be honest I didn't like it. Traded it in after a couple of hours play. Least it only cost a couple of quid, CEX were paying £20 cash about a week ago.

Heat added for price, it's obviously popular for a reason.

Now if amazon price matches

I started off like that to be honest, couldn't work out for the life of me why I wasn't getting any care packages. Anyway, safe to say it soon grew on me and I'm actually having a blast with it at the moment.

gutted I paid £32

​As long as you didn't pay that yesterday I think you've prob gotten good enjoyment value out ofit by now

Fantastic game, Nintendo are genius gamesmakers, only had it a few days and only up to level 10 after few hours play but it's very addictive.......

Got this with the Sqiud Amiibo a while back for £40, still looking to shift the Amiibo but at this point selling the Amiibo for £20 would still make the game £20 which isn't bad.

What a deal, can't recommend this game highly enough, fantastic

Wow, are the squid amiibo still worth that much? I would have gotten that bundle at that price but it was sold out.

Great game. £20 is an absolute steal.

Please be aware before you purchase - this game is as addictive as crack cocaine lol

Thanks

essential at double this price

I got this for £22.41 on release so yeah, you **** up.

Great price, but the price has dropped like a stone for a pretty recent game. Poor sales?

This game is sooo addictive, A must have for any Wii U owner

Sorry for off topic FD. Hot deal so more viewers to ask.

The sales figures have been high. In most territories the retail price of Splatoon has been low for a new game; for example it's not really been more than £30 in the UK, ever. It has commonly been £25 or less despite only being released three months ago. This is unusual for a Nintendo 1st party title, which are notorious for maintaining near RRP (£30 - £40) for years.

If I was to speculate I would say that as an almost exclusively online multiplayer game, the quality of the experience is dependent on having a large number of people playing the game and so Nintendo wanted to guarantee the saturation is there to allow it to succeed. It is their first real venture into integral online gameplay, as well as being a new IP, and I'm sure they wanted to give it every opportunity to do well. Turns out, as is fairly typical of internally developed Nintendo titles, it's a highly interesting, fun and polished game which will no doubt have longevity.

The single player isn't a bad way to spend 5 hours either.

Great game. I just came here to warn new buyers that the v2.0.0 patch seems to have completely broken online for some players (they can join games but 90% of the time "the connection is unstable" will appear mid-match and then kick them out, there is no known fix) so temper expectations accordingly. It should get patched eventually (at least I hope so as I'm one of the affected players).

Think i paid £10-12 more than that a couple of weeks ago. I'm not resentful though as its given me alot of enjoyment.

I've never been a big fan of online shooters but this is just so addictive!

Doesn't seem to know as not been on the site for a while to have done anything. No messages or anything. In a lot of threads yesterday there were many people suspended aswell. It's a strange one.

I don't think its dropped much? I think the original price was £24, and that is still pretty standard for it.

I knew it was a Wii U exclusive. It has dropped 33% though, just curious as to why that happened so fast.

Not knocking it though. I've played the game and it's great, even though I've not quite been tempted to buy a Wii U yet!

It's temporarily dropped a grand total of £5 from a £25 (which was the most easily attainable pre order price though not the absolute lowest) Not a big drop by any means and certainly not a quick drop. £20 is not the new normal price for Splatoon.

Thanks thought there must be some kind of error

Absolutely unbelievably cheap... I cannot believe how this is so cheap, it's such a fantastic Nintendo game, GOTY for me.
It's still £40 in the USA o_O

Heat added, good price too

I'll get this once it drops dub £15 and receives the "Big" august update. Whatever that may be....

You're late to the party, the big update was last Thursday. It included controlled multiplayer modes, two new weapon categories and 40 new clothing items. They're still slow releasing disc locked weapon sets once a week for the next few months, then actual new content after that. New content should include free maps, weapons and gear although details have not been confirmed.

Amazing game, recommend to anyone!

The former would be a big ask but the latter is out now.
