The game also includes a side story called Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, which tells the story of the game from the perspective of Bowser’s minions, led by Captain Goomba. Nintendo also revealed two new amiibo figures: Goomba and Koopa Troopa. The new amiibo and the existing Boo amiibo figure will be compatible with the game. The amiibo, and the game, are scheduled to launch separately on 6th October.
Nintendo ended the day by making a splat-tastic mess with an international flair. Competitors from four different global regions competed for world dominance in the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational. U.S. team Deadbeat emerged as the new global champions, scoring an upset win against Japanese champions Dynameu in a thrilling 4-1 final, after European hopefuls Rising Moon were knocked out in the elimination round.
The four-person teams competed in a best-of-seven final round featuring Ranked Battle modes from the game, and it was U.S. team Deadbeat whose name was engraved on a special Splatoon 2 trophy and can claim global bragging rights.
