I mained the inkbrush in the first game and I will shift back and forth impatiently in my seat until the content patch where it arrives. No, the octobrush isn't the same.

Debating if I want this digital or physical. I can see playing it for a long time, especially with the new content and splatfest stuff happening so often, but I don't have an SD card in my Switch yet so I don't know if it will even fit with the patches and updates all in there on top of the game

Main download is only 3.3gb, so I guess it depends how much other stuff you have.

Are there any clear "must have" abilities? I figure fast respawn and slow their respawn could be useful any others?

For some reason I think pure digital fits the Switch, so I am waiting for the download. Only Physical switch game I got is Zelda and that was at launch.

Ink refill up or whatever it's called is great, and the one that stops it revealing where you're super jumping to.

Ninja jump or invisible swimming were both pretty great in splat1.

Most of splat1 came down to "stack more damage or speed" but it seems like they removed those so it'll be more fun this time around to try different things.

The ones that keep your super through dying are good for new players.

Ink up is especially key if you're using a roller or if you often use your sub-weapon grenade thing.

Nintendo's known to be super good at compression. First-party digital downloads are pretty much always way tinier than what third parties put out.

Splatoon also has an art style where they can save space on textures by just applying shaders to flat colours instead, so that approach could knock a nice chunk off the filesize.

They mentioned some things only being available through Salmon Run, so who knows. Really though you probably don't want to bother stacking defensive skills when you could be getting power ups that let you kill them first.

I think Ink Up + Ninja Squid + Ninja Jump were the 3 I always used, at least for Turf War. Maybe Swim Speed Up instead of Ninja Squid.

It's almost midnight here! I'm gettin hella sleepy but definitely staying up to play for an hour or so

I was that idiot goon. According to the official Tumblr, the ability doubler main is only available on the splatfest tee.

Also stealth jumps are still visible to nearby enemy squidkids, according to the ability descriptions in the Splatfest testfire.

Going to bed now but Splatoon 2 is the bloody good video game. Got to level 4 so I could stop using the Splattershot Jr and get some fresh duds then played a bit more because of course. First few matches were irritating because I was with awful people who seemed to largely be treating the game like a straight shooter (that they were bad at) but once I quit and re-entered the lobby I got paired up with better people and it was a blast again.

Reviewer here, The NDA for this game was basically 2 pages of DON'T SAY WHAT THE CALLIE AND MARIE AMIIBOS DO OR ELSE.
