Make sure to check back each week to learn more about Splatoon and enter the contests.

This week is all about the world of Splatoon. Meet some of the characters you’ll encounter in Inkopolis and a few of the game modes available in the game.

Welcome to Inkopolis:

Meet the Inklings, the squid-like residents of Inkopolis have a passion for colour-flinging, ink-slinging, turf-splattering battles.

Turf War Battles: Head to Inkopolis Tower (the really tall one) and choose Regular Battle to get started. Playing in the online 4 vs 4 Turf War lets you level up and earn in-game coins for new gear! You’ve got 3 minutes to cover the most territory with your team. You can take out enemies along with way, but winning is all about who has claimed the most turf.

Meet Judd, the judge of the Turf Wars. Judd was born with the incredible ability to judge turf area at a glance to separate the winners from the losers.

Meet Cap’n Cuttlefish, a decorated hero who fought in the Great Turf Wars of legend between the Inklings and Octarians. He now keeps solemn vigil over Octo Valley, watching for any fishy behavior.
