It turns out that Splatoon has become a big hit in Japan and copies of the game are currently very scarce indeed. The Kyoto based company has taken to Twitter to apologise for the situation and promises that more copies of the game will be available to purchase sometime next week.

Live in New York City? Well, if you do, we hope you don’t mind getting inked up a bit! No, we’re not talking about tattoos! To celebrate tomorrow’s release of Splatoon, the folks in Nintendo’s marketing team are having a party to let New Yorkers know that Splatoon is here, and it’s here to stay!
So! If you happen to live in the Big Apple, here’s the low-down: on May 31st, Nintendo is going to invade Times Square and throw a pep rally at 9:30am. Come early enough and you might score yourself a Squid hat (I want one sooo bad!). Then, after an hour, the festivities will make their way over to the Nintendo World Store not far from Times Square and give the fans access to their Splatday event!

As I’m sure the majority of you are aware you will be able to purchase the fourth wave of amiibo tomorrow. However, with all amiibo launches you know that they are going to be rather tricky to get hold of. US retailer Amazon has explained their process for people wanting to get hold of the fourth wave and it’s not pretty. It’s good that it’s only one amiibo per customer though.
“Thank you for your interest in ordering the new amiibo figures from Amazon.com!” the official page states. “Quantities of the new characters are extremely limited, so we’d like to ensure that as many customers as possible have the opportunity to get the new figures!”
“Throughout the afternoon of Friday, May 29, we’ll be posting each Wave 4 amiibo figure individually within the following time windows. Each will become available for purchase at a random time during that time frame. Mark your calendars for the following times tomorrow!”
- Pac-Man: 2:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. PT
- Charizard: 2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. PT
- Inkling Boy: 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. PT
- Lucina: 3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. PT

“We’re limiting each amiibo figure to 1 per customer, and we’ll be disabling 1-Click Ordering,” Amazon said. “Additionally, it’d be helpful to make sure you’ve updated your credit card and shipping information to help you move quickly through the checkout process.”
Splatoon is right around the corner! Fans all over the globe are in a fervor to hop online and shoot up the world with a custom Inkling avatar and their various ink shooters.
But what’s this? It appears as though an image has been discovered online, showcasing a number of unknown ink weapons! If you take a quick gander, you’ll see that the famous Nintendo Zapper is set to make an appearance in two forms — in the original dark grey 1985 style and in the bright orange 1989 style! We’ll have you know, Nintendo updated the color to orange in 1989 to reduce the Zapper’s appearance of a real gun. Isn’t Nintendo trivia just fabulous?

Thanks to those who sent this in.
The Splatoon craze is spreading like wildfire in all sorts of forms, as this Twitter user found at Eaton Shopping Centre in Toronto. In the middle of their centre is a wonderful, huge fountain that’s been revamped in honour of Splatoon. An Inkling and a Squid sit on the fountain and the water– I mean, the ink!– has been dyed green. This is just another example of the intense, creative advertising that has gone into this game, let’s hope it lives up to expectations tomorrow!
