I don't know how it'll be with this game but in general, NOE's English script tends to stick closer to the original than NOA's, so if anyone's genuinely upset, go ahead and A/B them once the game's out.

The fact we got the same translation as America for the testfire has me hopeful that NoE didn't get their hands on Splatoon 2's translation and we get the NoA one.

I guess NoE's translations technically more accurate, but they're so joyless compared to NoA's pun-filled localizations. I mean come on, we didn't even get 'Booyah!' in Splatooon 1!

Who cares if the translation is accurate or not, so long as the writing is good and fun. Long live the death of the author!

Did people not watch the Direct or something? 4-player queuing is the only group queue for Splatfest, while the Team Ranked mode let's you queue as groups of 2 or 4. They didn't say anything about regular Turf War, is it about that? In Splatoon 1 you could queue/Join Friend in Turf War with pretty much any numbers from 2-8 I thought. Did they change that?

I'm avoiding reviews because I'm almost certainly picking this up no matter what and am trying to avoid spoilers for now.

Edit:

Meh, author intent matters and I think ignoring it is troublesome.

That said, translation and localization has a huge amount of flexibility. The Nintendo localization team has had some pretty great success recently with Kid Icarus, Splatoon 1 and more that I'm willing to give them more than one Splatfest.

So a couple of prayers from you guys wouldn't hurt, yeah?

Aww, looks like the whole Callie angle is a lot simpler than my wild dreams were hoping for. Not really a surprise, but slightly disappointing, and it seems Octokids aren't a SP reward after all. Ah well, there's always amiibo, perhaps.

o fuk, okay. thats fine then

I get why they are doing it in Splatfest. If a team of 2 + two solos gets queued against 4 player teams in Splatfest, that could start tipping the win percentage

Yeah exactly, premades need to be mached with other premade teams for splatfest. As long as there's options for normal ranked and stuff I'll be happy.

Also it looks like folks in Europe are starting to get their hands on early copies. Prepare for some Real Spoilers here in the next 24 hours, tops, I suspect.

I felt like the original pre-nerf Dynamo Roller was essentially the Super Shotgun of that game but I'm excited for umbrellas if they're going to formalize shotguns as a whole class of weapons.

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. It really, really looks like a game you must try to really see if you like it or not. Watching streamers play it makes it look hideously boring.

I like it but I'm slowly coming to the fact that yeah I don't actually do much in the game. Due to the open fields and the strength of long ranged weapons most of the time I'm gathering supplies for an anticapated gun fight only to be dropped when I start to make my way to the safe zone before I actually see another player. My want to play has steadily gone down because of that and it really makes me appreciate Valve's dev commentary in TF2 where outside of sniper, who they purposely gated his power hard, the designed the rest of the classes to need to get in close range for combat because it's much more fun. Kind of like how Splatoon 2 does it!

It's definitely a different experience when playing it, for sure. Especially once you break through top 20.

This is either because it's story spoilers, or because Nintendo is just being arbitrary about amiibo stuff again. They've had NDAs on super mundane amiibo stuff before, like Mario Maker.

I hope it unlocks Callie and Marie's Splatoon 1 outfits for players to use.
