Splatoon gameplay preview – “Best console shooter in years”

The folks over at Eurogamer have managed to get their hands on an early preview version of Splatoon and they’ve got some amazing things to say about the game. The game’s reviewer described it as “the best console shooter in years” while showing some footage of the game we’ve never seen before, including several new weapons.

You can check out the video above to see it live, but if you can’t watch the video right now it’s a preview of the game showcasing how zone captures work, some of the weapons you’ll have in your arsenal when the game is released, as well as some of the different functions of the various weapons and gear that is available in the game. Color me excited for this one as it seems Nintendo has something really innovative instead of iterative on their hands right now.

What’s your favorite weapon from the preview?
