Splatoon‘s made quite a splash; I had an inkling that was going to be the case, though whether it continues to hold players interest past the first couple of weeks will depend on how it… Evolves. But what if you don’t own a Wii U, want Splatoon‘s territory-based competitive multiplayer but aren’t a fan of the fact you can’t verbally abuse your opponents/teammates? Well, the Internet has you covered on a Microsoft platform you definitely own.
SethBling has put together a Minecraft mod which captures the heart if not the style of Nintendo’s squid-based shooter. Although played from a first-person perspective, all of the mechanics and weapon types have been blockily reproduced for your painting pleasure. Also, it allows for voice chat, so you can properly communicate with your team to enact a cohesive strategy be a chop.
You can check out the video below. Also, SethBling simply called it Splatoon, so if it’s something you’re interested in, best grab it before the Nintendo pulls a Konami and wipes it from existence.
