Trailer and Visual Released for “Splatoon 2″‘s Single-Player Campaign

Nintendo’s latest Direct for their upcoming game ARMS included a new trailer and visual for Splatoon 2‘s single-player campaign: Hero Mode. The two and a half minute trailer shows the campaign’s opening scene with Marie and introduces some of the fun gameplay, and squid puns, you can experience in Hero Mode.

“Callie—of Squid Sisters fame—has gone missing and it’s up to you, with the help of Marie, to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish while battling against the Octarian army. Use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling, or the new Dualies.”

Splatoon 2 is set to release on July 21 at the retail price of $59.99.
