“Yes, Splatoon is at odds with all consumers know, nay expect. That’s very Nintendo. They remain a studio either blissfully unaware of their unorthodox market tactics or completely at ease knowing they have built (and sustained) a voracious, defensive fan base. Splatoon’s pop-up, user-made messages in Inkopolis are bizarrely safeguarding of their chosen corporate monolith. “Our game is better than this one” and “Nintendo is awesome” are their sole projections to the outside world, their whole exterior identity. This community is safe but not personable unless you made them a video game. And you work for Nintendo.”
