Splatoon 2 gets companion app through Nintendo Switch Online

However, the Big N have gone for a less conventional - and slightly controversial route - for their online voice chat.

The app will carry limited functions and compatibility upon its launch, but it is expected to support more games and offer more services as Nintendo further develops Nintendo Switch Online. Mostly because Nintendo has clearly stated it will be charging for features and services that it used to provide for free on other consoles.

This Nintendo Switch mobile app is what anyone who is in love with Nintendo Switch needs.

That is a lot of different wires - compared to the PS4 and Xbox One which can be completely wireless thanks to Bluetooth headsets.

Oil prices rise to 2-week high on dip in USA output
The analyst stressed the increase has been driven by higher output from Nigeria and Libya , which were exempted from the deal. The growing concern is that rising Non-Opec output, led by the U.S. is increasingly offsetting the reduced Opec production.

On a more social front, the companion app enables you to invite other players to private battles, league battles and splatfest battles, and, yes, communicate with each other through voice chat. Nintendo had clarified in the past that it would use a standalone smartphone app for online communication for its latest console. It's only said the service will allow subscribers to download classic Nintendo titles and access special eShop discounts. Stay tuned for more information on the game in the coming weeks. SplantNet 2 would allow them to track their online play stats and get updates on the upcoming game features. In it, you can participate in the game's first Splatfest, a recurring online competition mode. Well, we've now been introduced to our new Splatfest hosts.

SplatNet 2 will be available via a smart device app called Nintendo Switch Online. And following today's Splatoon 2-themed Nintendo Direct, we now have a better idea of how the app will work, and some of the added value it might bring.

The Joy-Cons are Neon Green and Neon Pink - and will instead now be hitting stores on July 28. As you watch for news, you'll want to keep an eye out for Splatoon 2-related items like the newly-themed Nintendo Switch and Pro Controller.
