Splatoon was developed by Nintendo’s Entertainment Analysis & Development division, and originated from having a competitive multiplayer ink-based territory control game, which was later expanded to include squids and the ability to swim through the ink. The concept was created by lead programmer Shintaro Sato, who had previously worked on titles in the Animal Crossing franchise. The development team for Splatoon was generally composed of younger Nintendo employees (compared to other titles by the company). The main appeal of the game is its online competitive 3rd person shooter matchups where two teams pick a side and battle it out in these huge special Turf War events hosted under the name “Splatfest”.

Let’s take a moment to review some of the highlights from Nintendo Switch’s first year
Associate Product Marketing Manager at NIS America, Inc. has spoken in online interviewrevealing therein interesting information specific to Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana incoming to Nintendo Switch! Ys is a Japanese computer and console role-playing video game series, and Nihon Falcom corporation’s flagship franchise. It started on the NEC PC-8801 in 1987, created by Masaya Hashimoto (director, programmer, designer) and Tomoyoshi Miyazaki (scenario writer).

Hi! My name is Judith and I’m currently an Associate Product Marketing Manager at NIS America. I am in charge of all aspects of social media marketing for this title. Ys is an action RPG series that centers around Adol Christin (besides Ys Origins). He’s an adventurer who travels the world (usually with his companion Dogi). The Ys series gameplay has evolved a lot over the past 30 years, with several different styles, but all the games feature fast, addictive gameplay and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is no exception! We are aiming for the highest quality possible in all aspects. We anticipate a mid-summer launch. Many Nintendo Switch gamers have compared Ys VIII to the Monster Hunter and Xenoblade series. Also of note is that this is the first time an Ys game has been brought over to a Nintendo home console since Ys III: Wanderers from Ys was launched on the SNES. We believe that the revised localization of Ys VIII better captures the essence of the Japanese language version. That said, language and culture are deeply intertwined and not everything can translate 100% from one language to another; in those cases, we have made sure that the essence of the original is preserved. Please stay tuned for more details specific to the Switch version of this game. As the social media manager, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of our supporters who take the time out of their day to talk to us via our social channels like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. It makes me so happy to be able to personally see what everyone has to say, the good and the bad, things we can improve on, and things you are all excited for. Nothing makes me happier than being online and getting to know you all through our games. “
