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.
Eleven days prior to the release of Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch, Dark Horse published The Art of Splatoon – a 320-page book about the popular video game franchise, including character illustrations, concept art and more. This book is currently available in print and digital formats, and it’s a terrific addition to any video game fan’s reading library.
