Platform: Wii U
Release Date: May 2015
Splatoon is an upcoming third-person shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo for Wii U, which is scheduled for release in May 2015. In Splatoon, the player shoots colorful ink at opponents as well as surfaces, which the player character can swim through to hide from enemies, increase movement speed, or climb up walls. In the online multiplayer mode, two teams vie to cover more of the map in their color of ink, while in the single-player campaign, the player infiltrates an enemy octopus army that uses its own arsenal of ink weapons.
As far as games in 2015 go, Splatoon is right up there as my most anticipated game of the year. Announced at E3 2014 it has won tens of awards and captured the imagination of journalists and gamers alike. As far as new IPs go, Splatoon looks to have a fantastic start. Originally it seemed to be online only but since it's first appearance Nintendo have announced there will be a fully fledged single player story to go alongside the core part of the game. This will take place in more a 3D platformer environment.
