Splatoon 2 Will Have A Co-Op Horde Mode: Salmon Run

Just when you thought it was safe to ink.

In their most recent Nintendo Direct, the eponymous titan of gaming spent a bit of time on Splatoon 2, the sequel to their squid/kid action... painter.  The original Splatoon went over quite well, despite its home on the flailing Wii U, so it's quite natural that Nintendo would want to translate that success onto a console that people actually own.

During the presentation, Nintendo showed off a bit of gameplay for Splatoon 2's new four player co-op mode, Salmon Run.  It looks like it'll function quite similarly to standard horde modes, but with the added wrinkle of Splatoon's unique mechanics.  You can check out the video below:

In case you're into collectibles, Splatoon 2 will also be launching alongside a trio of new amiibo, with new colors of Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and the Squid available for the section of your brain that just can't handle incomplete collections.
