If you’ve been following the “Squid Sisters Stories” saga, then you know that Callie disappeared after the conclusion of Splatoon‘s final Splatfest. This forced separation has sent Marie into seclusion, and it also forms the spine of Splatoon 2‘s single-player Store Mode (and the new trailer embedded above).
Like some kind of eight-limbed bounty hunter, players will venture through Octo Valley and attempt to bring Callie home:
In a shocking twist, Callie – of Squid Sisters fame – has gone missing and her right-tentacle squid Marie tasks the player to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish. Players can use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling or the new Dualies. The single-player mode is designed to teach players tips and tricks that they can then use in multiplayer.
Splatoon 2 will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on July 21.
