Rumor: Splatoon 2 Release Date Set for August 18 UPDATE

UPDATE: Michael’s fellow countrymen were about as wrong as they were in World War II, because Splatoon 2 launches July 21st.

It seems like my fellow country men are as excited for Splatoon 2 as I am, as a new rumor for the game’s release date has originated from Italy.

Amazon Italy has listed Splatoon 2 for an August 18th release date ahead of Nintendo’s Spatoon 2 and Arms focused Nintendo Direct, which is scheduled for today at 3:00 PM Pacific / 6 PM Eastern.

If you are interested in watching the Direct, you can find it here. If you want to check out what the game looked like during the public test fire, we got you covered as well, just check the video below.

    That’s more or less what I was expecting.
