Splatoon is the new technicolor online arena shooter for Nintendo's Wii U video game console. It's stupidly fun and bright and family-friendly (instead of shooting each other, the goal of the game is to paint as much of the arena in your team's color ink as possible... although you can also shoot the members of the other team).
There is, however, a single player mode to the game, secondary to the main online shooter. And it's in the course of this single player mode that you can uncover the oddly disturbing history between the game's main characters, the squid-inspired Inklings, and the antagonists of single-player, the Octolings. Historical scrolls hidden away in each level reveal how the world of Splatoon came to be, and as bits and pieces of the story come together visions of Quarter Quells can easily pop into one's head.
