Splatoon 2 producer says the dev team hasn't thought about the future of the franchise yet

There will be a future, but just what happens next is a mystery

Splatoon and Splatoon 2 Producer Hisashi Nogami has been hard at work on all things Splatoon 2. There's been a ton of content over the last couple of years, and the final round of fun is coming from Splatoon 2's final Splatfest. So what's next for the world of Splatoon? According to a Famitsu interview with Nogami, he's not sure yet!

Splatoon 2’s production started moving right after 1 was released. Now we also had production for Octo Expansion so we’re fully focused on the updates, and we still haven’t thought of the future. For future plans, we’ll think of them after everything is over.

We’re not yet at a phase where we can make a promise, but we’d like to return the favour in some sort of way to many people who have supported us. If you continue to support us, it might turn into reality.

Did You Know Gaming - The Nintendo Truck Heist

This time on Did You Know Gaming extra, we take a look at some facts surrounding gaming theft, including stories about Nintendo's Splatoon, Runescape, Diablo III, then we finish off with some random trivia about Condemned: Criminal Origins.

Fan-made Splatoon short supposedly aimed at children hides suicide mention, gets called out by CBS News

The above clip appeared in a video that targeted children through YouTube and YouTube Kids. The feature was being recommended in sidebar playlists for young children, and unfortunately it's anything but safe for kids.

The video includes Splatoon characters, but obviously wasn't created by Nintendo. One segment has Filthy Frank making a "joke" about suicide, and it seems the intention was to sneak this kind of messaging in front of children. Thankfully the video has since been removed, most likely prompted by a CBS News report.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up.

Yet another Chinese mobile game 'heavily borrows' from Splatoon

Not the first Chinese mobile game that is heavily inspired by Splatoon, and it certainly won't be the last. As you can see, this game is yet another rip-off of Splatoon, but at least it doesn't use assets directly ripped from Nintendo's franchise. I guess that's a step in the right direction?!

Splatoon Ikasu art book gets localized into Chinese

Our friends in China have gotten a cool bit of Splatoon merch recently. Turns out the Splatoon Ikasu art book has received an official Chinese translation. It's a bit odd to see the book localized into Chinese, as neither Splatoon 1 or 2 have ever received official Chinese translations.
