Here's a picture of the set up for Splatoon 2 voice chat and presumably every other game that has voice chat.

I don't know why they didn't go with bluetooth to avoid all these wires, plus it's a reminder of the fact you have to connect to your phone too. A very Nintendo way to do this, and not the good kind of Nintendo way...

Certainly seems a hassle. There'll be jokes galore again!

A very annoying convoluted solution to a voice chat problem that really shouldn't exist this day and age, but at least it's only a problem if you want to use voice chat and play online in handheld mode. When docked, it should be fine

I just won't use the voice chat :lol:

Honestly they could have just had a headset or a mic in the device that you could enable/disable at will.

There's a Splatoon 2 tournament live on Nintendo Treehouse if anyone's interested.

I definitely didn't just spend £80 on the game, two t-shirts and an amiibo

Definitely not

Also watching the invitational right now, I don't watch esports but I'm enjoying this. Just wish there was better camera work

There were some real close matches in the finals of the tournament. Tower Control looks as though it'll be a bit more of a challenge, and the new maps show the other modes off well.

I'd probably order that special edition if you got a physical copy of the game, still not ready to 100% digital (and I doubt I will be anytime soon). Splatoon 2 looks very good from what I've seen so far, still need to watch more stuff from E3 though.

SimplyGames with the code SPLATOON5OFF gets you it for a clean 39.95 or something close to that. Under £40 though.

Never had a game arrive late from these guys, only ever early or on the day.

And we get to play the game a week before it launches thanks to the Splatfest.
Ice Cream or Cake? Who's joining the fight on the fifteenth?

I didn't catch exactly how that works - is that through the Global Testfire?

A new app downloadable starting tomorrow. I guess working exactly like the Testfire does but with a Splatfest theme instead.

And yeah, Team Cake.

Looks like they've really pushed the boat out on this, first Arms and now Splatoon 2, so glad I now got a switch. #teamicecream.

Yeah the direct was really good, Splatoon 2 looks a lot of fun (which was to be expected considering the first game), will definitely pick it up at some point this year, depends what else I fancy playing when I get my Switch in August alongside Mario + Rabbids.

Still don't get why Salmon Run is only available at selective times.
