Splatoon is an ink-filled shooter from Miyamoto's junior team

Nintendo has announced Splatoon, an 8-player third-person shooter with weaponized ink is coming to Wii U. The title is in development by the young developers at EAD, working directly under Shigeru Miyamoto.

As players compete in 4-on-4 battles, the environment is coated in colorful ink. Players can also transform into squids, allowing them to swim through the rivers of ink left behind by combatants.

Splatoon is coming to the Wii U in 2015.
