    Splatoon’s fantastic art is heading to bookstores
    One of Nintendo’s most stylish games is finally getting its own art book. Dark Horse is bringing The Art of Splatoon to stores in 2017, the publisher announced today, filled with designs and illustrations from the hit Wii U game.

    Die-hard Splatoon fans may recognize some of the art featured in the book, which was released in Japan last year. Dark Horse is adapting the Japanese edition of The Art of Splatoon for English-speaking audiences, making this the first time original concept art and even some comics based on the game will be translated from their native language.

    The Art of Splatoon runs 320 pages and is set to hit stores on June 13, 2017. Pre-orders for the $39.99 book are now open, but kids and squids who can’t wait for its release are encouraged to dip back into the Wii U game until then. The limited-time, online Splatfest events are no more, but there’s still plenty to check out in Splatoon, which made it onto Polygon’s games of the year list in 2015.

    Check out the cover of The Art of Splatoon below, courtesy of Dark Horse.

    I like how that article says "finally getting" then says it was already released in Japan last year.

    Edit: The (Japanese) book is quite nice, by the way.

    They've said that the Testfire will be on two maps. The Reef and Musselforge Fitness.

    I doubt they'll let people play with friends for this?

    I should be good for the one at 3 PM Eastern on that Saturday.

    In case anyone gets into a situation where you've got to redownload a piece of software from the eshop what you do is:

    1. Login to the eshop with that profile.
    2. Click your profile icon at the top right.
    3. Go to Redownload.
    4. Select the game to redownload.

    You can't just go to the shop, find the game, and click on it. All it'll say is "Purchased".

    So is it working? I'm at work so I'll be missing the first round unless it's extended but interested to know how the connection stacks up with a console that people actually own

    I don't know. I'm getting a message that says "You must have the software in order to play", and when I click Nintendo eShop it takes me to the store page where it says Purchased. I really don't understand what I need to do differently.

        I would recommend keeping it on and getting used to in. Painful early but it'll make precise aiming easier in the long run

          Haven't played on Switch yet, but it was fine on Wii U. Were you using motion controls for the first time? If so, either stick with it (they are really good) or turn them off and go with the regular twin-stick FPS set-up.

          Played a few matches with no connections issues. The motion controls suck. The regular controls sucked until I turned the sensitivity down, at which point they just kinda sucked. I'm having a hard time telling what is going on using mobile mode, so hopefully I can give it a shot on the TV at some point over the weekend. I'm sure a pro controller would make it much better too, but too bad I can't go to a store and buy one.

          I keep opening the map when I mean to jump. I blame the first game and Zelda.

          I tried both. Twin sticks was less terrible but still awful.

            I can't seem to join any games right now. I finally got my issue fixed... I popped out the SD card in my Switch, and then had to delete it and redownload it. It seemed to launch just fine after that.

            I can tell the controls are good but I just suck at them. I am VERY accurate when I get on a roll but now the good players are logging on. Also: No connection issues at all. Amazing!

            Played a good few games, really like the roller. Of the handful of games, only one or two were really close. It seemed like lots of games one team just pins the other into their spawn end and wins like 55+ to maybe 30. Playing handheld I found turning off motion to be necessary, but I may try tonight at home with the Pro because I find it pretty natural to motion aim with in Zelda.

            edit: Pro tip - move your left stick during the lobby load screen.
