“Splatoon 2” to Feature LAN Play and Private Battle Spectating

Nintendo has revealed two new features that will be available in the upcoming Splatoon sequel: Private Battle Spectator View and LAN Play.

Private Battle Spectator View can allow two extra non-players to spectate Private Battles and act as camera operators to see the match from different angles. The LAN Play feature allows 8 players to connect their systems using a wired LAN setup to create local Private Battle tournaments without the use of an internet connection.

Sounds like these two features would be really useful if anyone wanted to setup some competitive on-stage tournaments. Splatoon 2 comes to the Nintendo Switch this summer.
