Many Nintendo fans have been very excited about the upcoming third-person shooter Splatoon 2. There’s been a lot of speculation about the story, since Nintendo has dropped some hints about it. Now, players got a new Splatoon 2 trailer which shows off the single player campaign, and the buzz is certain to get louder.

From what can be seen in the video, it seems that the single player will remain a third-person shooter at its core. However, there appears to be many puzzle-platforming elements, as well as a sprinkle of RPG to add variety and challenge. The trailer makes it look a little bit like Ratchet and Clank and other games of that kind. The game, of course, looks as shiny and colorful as ever.

As far as the story goes, Splatoon 2 picks up just after the last Splatfest event from the previous game, after Squid Sister Marie defeated Callie. After Marie went away to visit her parents, upon return, she discovered that the Great Zapfish had been stolen again, and Callie was missing. Marie then decides to recruit a fresh, young Inkling (you) to help her. You’ll have to brave many dangers in order to find out what the evil Octarians are up to, try to find where the Great Zapfish is, and discover what happened to Callie.

Splatoon 2 is coming out worldwide on July 21st, 2017. Of course, you’ll only be able to get it on the Nintendo Switch.
