Those headphones promote talking to people I'm playing with. That seems against the goon code of conduct

There's only two, "This way" and "Booyah". It's all you need.

No. We don't even know yet how Nintendo's version of voice chat works, but I don't think it's mandatory.

Yeah plus if I don't like the sound quality I get the dongle out of it for mixing and can use my preferred headset instead, if that works.

The real question is where the gently caress are our splatoon 2 joycons?

Maybe you're asking about a US release which they sadly haven't announced, but considering Switch isn't region locked in any way, I imagine we could import them easy enough by the end of the month.

I'm super hyped for splatoon, but I hit a problem--I can't decide whether to buy the Japanese or North American version. I'm living in Japan, but my native language is English. I can read Japanese fine, but I'll be missing some puns and cultural references, and it seems like that's a big draw for the English version. Normal matchmaking isn't region locked, but I would a member of the splatfests taking place in NA while I'm at work / playing against overseas players only.

Is the style and culture of the English version worth missing out on Splatfests? Anyone else in a similar situation?

Personally I'd go for Japan for their not-Miiverse art since up there they seem to have a general skill to draw decent drawings compared to the west, but to each their own. At least you won't risk dealing with laggy American players.

As long as the gear you get from salmon run is not required to compete I'm all for it. It will bug me if theres a BIS that you can only get from a certain salmon run boss that only opens up every 6 months

From the brief look at it we got in the direct, it looked like Salmon Run was open for one whole day about every two or three days. So this shouldn't happen.

On the 15th you can duke it out with team cake in the turf war game mode for dessert supremacy. There'll probably be a concert in Inkopolis square with Pearl and Marina while the Splatfest runs as well. In 1 there was a payout of a special currency for fiddling with your gear that depended on how well your team did and how high your rank was, but I'm not sure if they're doing that for the demo.

Its easy to miss, but if you load up the demo now, you can find a little stand in the middle of the square that lets you pick team cake or team icecream, and put on your team t-shirt. Then this weekend we'll all throw down in the demo.

I think in the Direct they mentioned that through the App it's a dedicated chat for you team. So I would think that even if you're just playing with 3 strangers you'll be able/have to chat with them.
