News about Nintendo’s new IP, Splatoon, has been sprouting up a fair amount, lately.

This week’s issue of popular Japanese gaming-magzine Famitsu  gives us a little bit more info on the upcoming Wii U exclusive, 3rd-person shooter.

Among the details, we find out what the game’s controls are:


Left Stick – Movement
ZL – ‘Squid’ (only while pushed)
Gyro Sensor – (Aim – can be turned off)
Right Stick – Look left & right. Push in for Special Weapon.
R – Sub Weapon
ZR – Ink Shot
X – Jump
Y – Camera Reset

Also, we get some details on some gameplay elements:

? Squid form is faster than human form, but can’t move outside of ink.

? Jump is more or less the same for both human and squid forms, but while moving through your own color ink, you can jump further, allowing you to reach places you can\’t in human form.

? These include places that might prove vital in winning.

The next set of Splatoon news is due in the March 5th issue of Famitsu. Are you excited for the game? Sound off below!
