Splatoon 2’s the hottest thing right now but it doesn’t hurt to take a look back at the first game. CoroCoro’s uploaded an animated look at the manga that was published during the original Splatoon’s reign as my go to multiplayer fun. Enjoy seeing a group of Inklings make their way to Inkopolis Plaza for the CoroCoro Cup tournament, meet up with a much higher ranked player and maybe you’ll learn a lesson about teamwork along the way. Even without subtitles available as of this writing the panels do a great job of conveying the story and the Japanese being used isn’t too demanding. More than anything it’s great to see this one in color, fitting for the vibrant, salty world of Splatoon.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
