Nintendo Switch online multiplayer smartphone app to launch alongside Splatoon 2

Nintendo Switch online multiplayer smartphone app to launch alongside Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 will come to the Nintendo Switch on July 21, 2017.

We know that in 2018 that Nintendo's online service will start up, and over the last couple of months we've been given details of how Splatoon 2 will function.

Splatoon 2 will be the only game compatible with the Nintendo Switch Online app at launch, and will enable players to voice chat with friends, invite fellow gamers to online match-ups and form teams.

Once players are connected, you can use voice chat openly with friends while in the online lobby and during online play (depending on the game).

Nintendo revealed many other tidbits about the team-based shooter as well.

Communal violence breaks out in West Bengal
On Wednesday, the Centre had rushed around 400 BSF personnel to the spot to aid the state police in maintenance of law and order. But now, with a majority of the reforms, including GST, now out of the way, the party central leadership may now go for the kill.

When the paid version of the Nintendo Switch Online app launches, it will be available for $20 per year, which is much lower than similar costs for competing platforms. Sometimes you just don't want to shoot ink around a skate park for a couple hours while you wait for other maps to cycle through. You can check out records for any weapons you've used or stages you've played on as well. It looks like friends can be invited from your social media contacts, your Nintendo Switch Friends List, or from a list of people you've battled against previously. Find out what stages are coming up!

"Splatoon 2 is a huge, robust sequel to the original Splatoon", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Annie is planning to open an online store called "SplatNet Shop"!

Gear is available for purchase, which can then be picked up later in the game's hubworld Inkopolis Square.
