Producer Hisashi Nogami and programming director Shintaro Sato recently spoke to Glixel to talk about Splatoon 2, which releases on July 21st. The interview was very insightful, but the biggest news that came from it was that a brand new mode that will be coming to the game, called League Battle. Here’s what Shintaro Sato had to say about it:
There’s a new mode in Splatoon 2 called League Battle. This will be a mode that players can play either in groups of two or four, and it will present you with a two-hour period in which your group competes with other groups to see how many points you can earn. Because the results of that League Battle play will be displayed in a ranking at the end of every two-hour period, we can give players goals to strive for, and hope to encourage them to keep competing and pushing.
