Splatoon 2 Producer Hisashi Nogami Explained Their Approach To Disrespectful User Posts

Splatoon 2 enables you to leave comments in the plaza, the game’s hub area. Many posts have been made in the last year. Unfortunately, not all of these posts are in good taste. Some user posts end up being offensive, disrespectful, and even illegal. Well, Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami recently talked about their approach to these posts with Kotaku. Here’s what Nogami said:

“We really don’t want people to use the plaza here as a way to hurt people or say hurtful things to other people or do anything considered against the law. We do have a portion of our development team that is responsible for spotting the worst offenders when it comes to comments and artwork and making sure those don’t get seen.

We know a lot of topics are something someone feels positively about and another person might feel negatively about. We don’t want to bring the hammer down too hard on everything. And so as long as something hasn’t risen to the top for the wrong reasons, something that’d be violating the rating for some reason, we try to let the system basically sort it out. We really hope that people use this system as a means of communication and celebrating the game.”





    The all caps made it more impactful; my uncle who works at Nintendo told me.

    For real though, if you see something, say something. Report button’s there for a reason!

    1. You gotta play ranked and get yours up. Around B+ or so, people seemed to care enough about their rank to not disconnect or idle. I don’t play much turf wars at all, but I rarely see that.


    2. I know. I will admit to disconnecting sometimes due to lousy WiFi, but otherwise disconnections are terrible.

      They do make for funny video captures, though, where everyone but you and one other person gets splatted, that one person freezes in place, you can keep running around, and after like 30 seconds it finally admits a communications error occurred.

      1. I think it looks different because you’re not inking the person. I’ve noticed the same smoke happen when I fall off stages, and that’s still considered splatting


  2. I wish they would have talk about it sooner becuase during launch there was a lot political and LGBT furry memes going on around back than (they occur sometimes still, but I’m mostly talking about the offensive ones, and the fact that they have nothing to do with ingame) but tbh I’m pretty sure this is the main reason why we don’t have miiverse on switch monitoring majority of those ignorant agenda shoving post on a game meant for kids is stupid.
