Splatoon 2 launches July 21 with cooperative horde mode

Splatoon 2 will have more than a competitive multiplayer.

Nintendo revealed today that its ink shooter launches July 21. And it will have a cooperative four-player horde mode called Salmon Run where players will team up to take on waves of enemies. Your team must collect special golden eggs and bank them all in the name of their corporate overlord, Grizzco Industries.

Nintendo is promising that Salmon Run will give players “fresh” rewards for participation. This likely means you’ll get clothing, weapons, and other gear that is unique to this mode.

Additionally, the publisher revealed that it will have three new Splatoon Amiibo for Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and the Squid. You can use those to dress up your characters, take selfies, and share images on social media.
