Alright guys, what’s going on? It’s Hank
here from Nintendome. Yesterday, Nintendo just had their first Nintendo direct in what
feels like forever. It was super cool and they did announce some new Splatoon stuff
so we’re getting some new gear, a new gameplay update, and most importantly, a new map that
is about to hit Splatoon very soon. It’s called Museum d’Alfonsino… I think. Je ne
parle pas Francais. So… yeah that is my best guess at how you pronounce that name.
But anyway, let’s take a look at the actual map itself. So right off the bat, I kinda want to point
out that it seems that Nintendo has changed the spawn a little bit. In the trailer, you
spawn on this little platform whereas when NWPlayer got her hands on the map, she actually
spawned on this little moving axel right here. So I don’t really know what’s up with
that but… whatever. Anyway, in general, I really like the idea of Museum d’Alfonsino.
I don’t think this will be super great for Splatoon in terms of gameplay, although I’m
not saying otherwise either. I just think that it’s cool that Nintendo is trying to
new stuff with the maps they are introducing. The moving parts in the map make the gameplay
MUCH more dynamic- which is a nice change of pace from the other maps we have been receiving.
In general, I think this map is actually pretty similar to Flounder Heights. There are some
big open areas but for the most part there are going to be partitions separating people
from each other. It seems pretty chaotic and disorganized but that can be pretty cool too.
Of course, echolocator is always strong but I think it’s going to be especially strong
on this map. Also, just an FYI, there are going to be a few uninkable surfaces on Museum
d’Alfonsino… I hope I said that right, but in general, you are going to be able to put
down ink in front of you so I definitely don’t think this will be a map that will justify
Run Speed Up by itself. And honestly guys, you are going to be doing a ton of jumping
as you move around this map. It’s actually kind of crazy There are even some parts of
the map that you access by waiting on top of the rotating axel, and then jumping once
that axel passes a little pathway for you. So yeah the gameplay on this map is definitely
dynamic. Nintendo has gone out of their way to make this map unique from other maps and
honestly, I really really like it. But guys, that was just a brief overview Museum d’Alfonsino.
I definitely reccomend that you guys check it out by yourselves when it hits Splatoon
at 9 PM ET tonight. And yeah that’s all I really have to say
for now. Definitely be sure to hit that like button and subscribe if you enjoyed as that
stuff really does help me out guys, honestly. I guess that’s it. Thank you so much for
watching and I will catch you guys in the next video!
