Book Review: The Art Of Splatoon 2
Splatoon 2 is one of the most wildly popular games for Nintendo Switch. And at Nintendo Philly Meetup, a group I founded and run, we play Splatoon 2 all the time at our monthly meetups at TAP Esports in Philadelphia’s Chinatown. Why? Because the multiplayer modes in Splatoon 2 are highly addictive. There’s something about the crazy art style, whacky music, and frenetic action of this game that keeps us, and millions of Nintendo fans worldwide, coming back for more. With this in mind, Dark Horse published a book, The Art of Splatoon 2, that is dedicated to providing fans with a deep dive into the art and design of this instant classic.
This beautifully bound hardback book contains 384-pages worth of illustrations and rough designs of your favorite colorful characters, weapons, gear, locations, maps, and brands. This book also features storyboards and other extras that are sure to make a splash with any fan of Splatoon 2. As was the case with the book that preceded this one, The Art of Splatoon, this hefty tome is a treasure trove of information about the game’s artwork, characters, and world, and I have an inkling that you’re going to love it.
