“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.

ClariS to Perform “Eromanga-sensei” Opening Theme

Sony Music announced on their website that ClariS will be performing the opening theme for the Eromanga-sensei anime adaptation! The new song, “Hitorigoto”, will be available as a CD single release on April 26.

For those unfamiliar with the series, MyAnimeList describes the plot below:

“The “new sibling romantic comedy” revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune’s little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn’t left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other’s only family.

Masamune’s novel illustrator, pen name “Eromanga,” draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed… that his “Eromanga-sensei” is his own younger sister! To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shoujo manga creator becomes their rival!”

The anime will begin airing this April.
