Splatoon 2 coming Summer 2017 with new weapons, modes, and stages

Nintendo Switch is getting a full-on Splatoon Sequel. It's called Splatoon 2, and it's getting new weapons, modes, and stages, letting you be a squid now or kid now at home or on the go.

One of the featured weapons in Splatoon 2 is a pair of twin pistols called "Duelies." In addition to all the new content, you'll have a few additional control options as well. You can use the Switch Pro Controller instead of JoyCons if you like, using either the gyro-sensors or analog sticks. 

Because the Switch doesn't have a second screen like the WIi U, you'll press the X button to bring up the map and press specific buttons on your JoyCons to leap to wherever your teammates are. You'll be able to play on the TV screen or on the Switch screen as a handheld. It'll also include online and local VS multiplayer.

Splatoon 2 is coming to Switch summer 2016.
