Splatoon 2 vs. Splatoon 1 Nintendo Switch vs. Wii U Comparison

Splatoon 2 is set to release soon for the Nintendo Switch. It is the sequel to the commercially successful Splatoon that was released as a brand new IP on the Nintendo Wii U. When Splatoon 2 was announced, some of the fans were calling it a rehash of the original however after looking at both the new and old game side by side, it is pretty clear that a lot of work has been done in making the sequel stand out on its own. It doesn’t look like a rehash at all or an enhanced port, instead the game adds a whole lot of new content featuring a story mode that is playable offline as well as improved visuals.

Splatoon 2 now runs at native 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch and the game is confirmed to run at 60 FPS on top of it, making it one of the better looking and performing games on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out a screenshot comparison made by NeoGAF user Lord Kano below, which pits the visuals for Splatoon 1 against the sequel. The source of the images is from the latest Nintendo Direct.

Splatoon 2 will be released on July 21st for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has also announced a whole year of free post-launch support for the game so you can expect to get a lot of mileage out of it once it launches this month.
