Splatoon art gallery shows off the series’ colourful history

Nintendo has put together a Splatoon art gallery on its Japanese website, so you can gawk at the lovely pictures from the Nintendo Switch’s inky multiplayer hit

With a new Splatoon art gallery uploaded onto Nintendo’s Japanese website, you can get a look at various pictures from the series’ seven-year history. Since the first game in 2015, it has always been about colourful creativity and loud self-expression, and the concept art holds all that within it.

Over at Nintendo’s Japanese website, a rough translation shows a side-scrolling retelling of the series via its concept art. This Splatoon art gallery is long, and all it leaves me thinking is why can’t we have this as a physical book? That would’ve made an excellent Christmas present.

The way Nintendo treats the Splatoon series always piques my interest – it feels different to everything else in its catalogue. Either way, the excellent series has triggered massive live concerts, a huge and connected community, and countless lovers of its music. I even wrote at length about the Splatoon 3 soundtrack. No matter what, it’s wonderful to see Nintendo continue to celebrate the series that so many people love.

Where can I find the Splatoon art gallery?

You can check out the Splatoon art gallery over on Nintendo’s Japanese website. There’s no sign of it on an English-language website for now, but if we see it we’ll update this page as soon as. Either way, it’s all about the pictures, and pictures speak a thousand, languageless words. Check out the trailer for the latest Splatoon 3 update below.
