The latest Splatoon 2 video focuses on Tower Control

Nintendo has released the latest ‘Squid Research Seminar’. For those not familiar with these ‘seminars’ they are basically instructional videos for Splatoon 2. This edition, the eighth in the series, is all about Tower Control. If you’re unfamiliar with this ranked game mode it plays like a cross between King of the Hill and Escort mode, from Blizzard’s online shooter Overwatch. The ‘seminar’ will not only tell you how the game works and what objectives you need to focus on, but also provides some great tips on which weapons and tactics will work best.

For those not familiar with Splatoon 2, where have you been for the last year, here’s the official description of the game –

For the first time, take Turf War battles on-the-go with the Nintendo Switch™ system, and use any of the console’s portable play styles for intense local multiplayer* action. Even team up for new 4-player co-op fun in Salmon Run!

Two years have passed since the original Splatoon™ game was released, and two years have also passed in Inkopolis! So expect a fresh wave of fashion, not to mention new weapons and gear. Dual wield the new Splat Dualies or stick to mainstays like chargers and rollers, which have been remixed with new strategic possibilities. As always, Turf War is the favored sport among Inklings, but they also dig ranked battles, taking down Octarians in a robust single-player campaign, and battling enemy Salmonids in one dangerous part-time job! No matter which way you play, splat at home or on-the-go with Nintendo Switch. Staying fresh never felt so good.
