Splatoon Controller Layout Detailed, New Screenshots Revealed

Splatoon Controller Layout

NeoGAF member Fiktion has created a thread about Nintendo‘s very own upcoming ink-based 3rd-person shooter, Splatoon. All of the information detailed in the thread contains new details about the game including new screenshots that have been unveiled via the official Splatoon Twitter account.

In single player mode, players will investigate happenings in the world of Splatoon for the Squid Research Lab. Throughout the course of the campaign, players will wear a hi-tech outfit known as the “Hero Suit”. According to the developers, the Hero Suit is designed to resemble fire fly squids that are also featured in the game.

Other details revealed in the thread are story-oriented, but the default controller layout was also revealed in the thread:

ZL – Squid (dive into ink, restores ink)
L-stick – move

R-button – Bomb (uses 70% of your ink)
ZR – Ink Shot (uses up ink)
R-stick – looks left/right
X – Jump
Y – Camera Reset

Touch the Squid Icon to make a big jump to one of your team mates.

Use gyro to aim.

Players will use the R Button on the Wii U GamePad to fire their sub-weapons (an example in the gallery above). Pictured above is the Splash Bomb. It does no damage, but can give players a tactical advantage and can prove as an excellent distraction.

Unfortunately, no information was revealed as to how deep the control customization will be seeing as many fans will want to aim with the right analog stick, but more information on that should be revealed in the coming months.

Are you excited for Splatoon? How do you think the gyroscope aiming will turn out? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
