Very few things these days can truly be called “original.” We have reboots, sequels, and rebooted sequels and this can be true for many things movies, comic books, and even video games. There is one company that I feel has been trying to do “original” work and that is Nintendo. Now I know every video game system gets its Mario and Zelda game but Nintendo always tries to do something new. This brings us to Nintendo’s new game Splatoon. It hard to really put Splatoon into one video game genre, at its core it’s a third person shooter very much like Star Wars Battlefront or Gears of War but much more family friendly. However it also adds elements of platformers like Mario and puzzles and boss battles like Zelda. It a very original idea out of a genre that I think is starting to get stale. Now to be truly honest this is my first play through of Splatoon. I have only had a chance to play the single player and only a few levels. So these are just my first impressions but I wanted to just give you Arcaders out there a quick look at the game itself so please look out for more of my adventure on Splatoon coming soon.
