イカ研究所の調査報告だ。
これは地下基地に設置されている仕掛けのひとつ。レールのようにつながったインクの中を、イカになって進むことができるらしい。インクに潜ることができるイカならではの移動方法だ。それにしても、なんだか窮屈そうだ。

Reported from the Squid Institution, the Japanese text above roughly translates to:

This is one of the mechanism that is installed underground base . Through the ink led to the rail , it seems possible to proceed to become the squid . It’s squid unique way of moving that you can dive into the ink . Even so , it’s somewhat cramped.

Essentially, players can traverse rails that have ink running through them. To do this you must transform yourself to a squid and dive into the rail.

Splatoon’s most interesting gimmick is to hide yourself within puddles of ink. From such a simple design element, allows a number of tactical gameplay possibilities.

Splatoon is scheduled for release during the first half of 2015. For the latest updates on Nintendo’s shooter or the Wii U stay tuned at Nintendo News Fix.
