Nintendo Treehouse Live E3 2017 Day 3: Splatoon 2 Single-Player!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Welcome to Day 3!

Howdy folks! Today is the LAST day of E3 2017. Bummer, right? (Nah, we're tired.) Check all of the days of E3 2017 here.

The very first awesome game being shown by Nintendo Treehouse Live on Day 3? Fan favourite Splatoon 2! This time around, we'll be seeing the single-player mode first shown in the ARMS Direct. It's similar to Splatoon 1, but with a critical difference...

(1:00:22 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "Hey y'all welcome back to the third day of Nintendo Treehouse Live"

(1:00:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Starting with Splatoon 2.

(1:00:28 PM) (rawkhawk2010) link

(1:00:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: https://player.twitch.tv/?volume=1&!muted&channel=nintendo

(1:00:37 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ABOUT SINGLE-PLAYER CAMPAIGN

(1:01:03 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Super important.

(1:01:20 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Tentakeel Outpost

(1:01:36 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Marie is the new Cap'n Cuttlefish.

(1:01:50 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Octarian right there.

(1:02:06 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Return of the Octarians is level 1.


Splatoon 2 single player hero mode level 1 Return of the Octarians Rescue the Zapfish
The first look at the first level of the new Hero Mode.


(1:02:10 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Rescue the Zapfish!

(1:02:21 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Does this look better than Splatoon 1's single-player?

(1:02:24 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Wouldn't know.

(1:02:45 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Uhhhh

(1:02:53 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean this is the tutorial level.

(1:03:13 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And the single-player was always in terms of game design functioning as a tutorial + world-building function.

(1:03:25 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So this is the tutorial of tutorial.

(1:03:45 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Does this tutorial look better than Splatoon 1's tutorial?

(1:03:47 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The reason the Octarians are back to begin with is unknown but probably explained in a cutscene.

(1:03:55 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: *shrug*

(1:04:02 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I will say

(1:04:06 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: There is now a timer.

(1:04:08 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: (counting up)

(1:04:25 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And they just said if you take enough damage you won't die but your armour will break.

(1:04:34 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: But you can auto-regen it.

(1:04:44 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The single-player hub area is called Octo Canyon.

(1:05:03 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Suction-Cup Lookout is first stage.

(1:05:04 PM) (rawkhawk2010) wtf timers?

(1:05:12 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I think it's telling you

(1:05:14 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Nope I'm out

(1:05:15 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: how long you've been playing.

(1:05:16 PM) (rawkhawk2010) No buy.

(1:05:21 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Rawk shut up

(1:05:23 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: It's not a

(1:05:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "If it hits 3 minutes you lose" thing.

(1:05:42 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: It's a "Here's how long you've been playing the stage" thing.

(1:05:52 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Because people like to speedrun these I guess.

(1:05:54 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Can we get a new word for that?

(1:05:59 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Uhhhhh

(1:06:03 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead of Timer?

(1:06:04 PM) (rawkhawk2010) They're opposite concepts and use the same word.

(1:06:07 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah.

(1:06:07 PM) (rawkhawk2010) yes

(1:06:13 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Cuz that's stupid.

Splatoon 2 single player Hero Mode Splat Roller Enter the Octohurler
Look! It's a Splat Roller! (Let it roll!)


(1:06:17 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ANYWAY THERE'S SOMETHING IMPORTANT

(1:06:23 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: You can choose your weapon in single-player

(1:06:33 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: For Splatoon 1 you only had a shooter gun.

(1:06:41 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: For this you can choose between the different types.

(1:06:52 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: In Splatoon 1 you could only play certain single-player levels by using amiibo.

(1:07:04 PM) (rawkhawk2010) btw Why is Kirby Air Ride the one video game in the history of anything to have a "timer" that keeps counting when the game is paused?

(1:07:08 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Was that a glitch?

(1:07:48 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Wait, really?

(1:08:37 PM) (rawkhawk2010) yes

(1:08:40 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So Sheldon (the weapon seller guy) also contributes dialogue in single-player relating to weapons.

(1:09:34 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "Rollonium" are new single-player fun objects.

(1:09:43 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: That are basically ink-covered yoga mats.

(1:09:50 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: .........that extend when hit.

(1:09:59 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: They keep quitting levels 'cause they don't want to spoil.

(1:10:07 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Octozeppelin Invasion stage 2-6

(1:10:18 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Using a Charger.

(1:10:24 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Zeppelins are different.

(1:10:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: erm

(1:10:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: New

(1:11:34 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Are you buying this?

(1:11:47 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Anyway, obviously in terms of teaching players stuff, letting them have different weapons in the tutorial is more instructive.

(1:11:50 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Very likely!

(1:13:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: New item: A Sardinium

(1:13:32 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Which we'll be shown later...

(1:14:02 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: When you have full charge on the charger, the shots pierce through.

(1:14:33 PM) (rawkhawk2010) All I know is that this is SEGA as fuck.

(1:14:58 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Back to Octo Canyon.

(1:15:06 PM) (rawkhawk2010) What was that last level called?

(1:15:16 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Octozeppelin Invasion.

(1:15:21 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Ah.

(1:15:22 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Now he's going back to 1-1

(1:15:26 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: With the Slosher.

(1:15:33 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Every stage is possible with every type of weapon.

Splatoon 2 Hero Mode single player Slosher weapon choice
Same first level, but now with a Slosher!


(1:15:44 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So it looked like Octozeppelin Invasion was optimised for the Charger

(1:15:56 PM) (rawkhawk2010) It reminded me of Jet Force Gemini + that Sonic Adventure 2 gravity place.

(1:15:58 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: but it's possible with every.

(1:16:19 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I think they just implied that the first time you try a stage you have to use a certain weapon.

(1:16:28 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: But afterwards you can replay it with wotever.

(1:16:32 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Not sure.

(1:18:07 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Now research on how to power-up the weapons.

(1:18:16 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Your weapons start on lv. 1.

(1:18:28 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: With Power Eggs and the Sardinium you can power them up.

(1:18:59 PM) (rawkhawk2010) what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck just happened to twitter

(1:19:01 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Go to Ammo Knights Enchancifier

Splatoon 2 single player Hero Mode upgrade weapons power eggs Sardinium Ammo Knights Enchancifier
You can try to grind for eggs all you want, but the Sardiniums are tied to the number of levels you've completed.


(1:19:37 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: You need to spend a certain number of Sardinium and eggs for each upgrade, and while you can grind for infinite eggs, it appears you can only get one Sardinium per stage.

(1:19:41 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Twitter changed design.

(1:19:45 PM) (rawkhawk2010) they changed all the buttons and the avatars are now circles

(1:19:48 PM) (rawkhawk2010) weird

(1:20:21 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: It's possible to win without leveling up.

(1:20:30 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: (Well, anything's possible)

(1:20:38 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Warp to Beaker's Depot

(1:20:49 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Dancing Floors -Ink Switcheroo-

3-13

Splatoon 2 hero mode single player Dancing Floors level Splatling shooting
It's kind of cool to see the switch/target being bombarded with the Splatling's ink.


(1:20:59 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Taking Splatling into the stage.

(1:22:01 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: In terms of stage features and design it's basically the same from Splatoon 1.

(1:23:38 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: See, the reason that when they introduced the Splatling in Splatoon 1 that I never tried it

(1:23:41 PM) (rawkhawk2010) like i've said

(1:23:50 PM) (rawkhawk2010) turquoise inkling >>>>>>>> orange inkling

(1:23:56 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: is that the only way to really play with it is to go to multiplayer and let your team down because you don't know what you're doing.

(1:24:16 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So this gives the opportunity to play with unfamiliar weapon types without making other humans pissed off.

(1:24:32 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Going to The Octopark, 2-5

(1:24:35 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: With the Splat Dualies.

(1:24:38 PM) (rawkhawk2010) The Splat Dualies were all I used in the Test Splat.

(1:24:40 PM) (rawkhawk2010) They sucked.

(1:24:40 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: This has rails.

Splatoon 2 single player hero mode The Octopark rails grinding Splat Dualies
Rails got new mechanics in Splatoon 2.


(1:24:51 PM) (rawkhawk2010) RAILS

(1:25:04 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Jet Set Splatoon

(1:25:29 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The dodge roll is exclusive to the Dualies.

(1:25:34 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: You can roll into rails.

(1:25:47 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Jump off rails into gold rings.

(1:25:48 PM) (rawkhawk2010) See this actually looks fun.

(1:26:02 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: There is a LOT more momentum off your jumps off rails in this game than Splatoon 1.

(1:26:14 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Good.

(1:26:19 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Momentum is good.

(1:26:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Might be a Splat Dualies exclusive speed-boost

(1:26:43 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Because they said Splat Dualies is the most mobility-focused weapon class.

(1:26:56 PM) (rawkhawk2010) They suck at killing dudes tho.

(1:27:05 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: That's generally how speedsters work.

(1:27:13 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Like Sheik.

(1:27:25 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: For the first time they showed a stage clear.

(1:27:27 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I still don't like these Inklings' faces.

(1:27:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So the 2:31 time is the record.

(1:27:39 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "New record!"

Splatoon 2 hero mode single player The Octopark new record stage cleared screen holding Zapfish
Rawk is scared by this face.
Why does the Zapfish resemble Cap'n Cuttlefish?


(1:28:01 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The Showdown

(1:28:04 PM) (rawkhawk2010) The close-up Inkling face on that victory screen gave me the chills.

(1:28:05 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Fear the Octo Samurai

(1:28:07 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: boss battle.

(1:28:21 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: In Splatoon 1 the bosses were machines.

(1:28:25 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Was that Biff?

(1:28:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: This samurai appears to be a dude.

(1:28:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: no That's a Zapfish.

(1:28:50 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: SPLATS WITH HONOR

Splatoon 2 single player hero mode boss fight battle Octo Samurai splats with honor roller
OCTO SAMURAI. SPLATS WITH HONOR.

(1:29:08 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Did Splatoon 1 have bosses?

(1:29:23 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "In Splatoon 1 the bosses were machines" implies Splatoon 1 has bosses.

(1:29:44 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Octo Samurai has a roller, or Octo Cycler.

(1:29:49 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And he's using it as a bike.

(1:29:53 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Or unicycle.

(1:29:55 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Or something.

(1:30:36 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I wish the music was a bit more appropriate.

(1:30:44 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The bosses in Splatoon 1 (besides the final) were also 3-hits.

(1:30:57 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: And the music in Splatoon 1 for bosses was pretty low-key.

(1:31:04 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: So this seems to be the same philosophy.

(1:31:11 PM) (rawkhawk2010) I'm not a fan of that.

(1:31:31 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Octo Samurai is now literally on a unicycle and spin-attacking.

(1:32:08 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I dunno why the player isn't using any sub-weapons.

(1:32:46 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: After second hit they quit.

(1:32:54 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: "I think that's about it."

(1:33:08 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Up next... Ever Oasis?

(1:33:10 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

(1:33:11 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

(1:33:15 PM) (rawkhawk2010) um

(1:33:16 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: The game with the Newts?

(1:33:20 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Or Noots.

(1:33:27 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I'm never gonna learn how to spell 'em.

(1:33:30 PM) (rawkhawk2010) Is this the third E3 we've seen that at? >.>

(1:33:35 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: ........second?

(1:33:41 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: Or third.

(1:33:45 PM) Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't know anymore!!!
