'Splatoon 2' Uses This Method To Avoid Online Verbal Abuse
Online games are enjoyable as it provides fans to meet other players and make new friends. However, toxicity in gaming has been a major issue over the years, especially when it comes to voice chat. Splatoon 2 has found a way to combat this while still allowing voice chat in the game.
The latest issue of GamesTM (via Japanese Nintendo) features an interview with the game's development team. There, they dispel any fears of online abuse from voice chat that is being added to the Online Lobby & Voice Chap app. Director Yusuke Amano claims that fans do not need to worry as voice chat will only be available to those who are friends.
"The reason we included voice chat is because we wanted users who already know each other to enjoy the game more deeply using a communication tool that's linked to the game," he explained. Similarly, producer Hisashi Nogami adds that voice chat with players in random matchmaking "won't happen." With this in mind, fans do not need to worry about getting raged on by random strangers and instead can focus on having fun with their friends.
Incidentally, GameSpot shares that there will be a retail version of Splatoon 2 that does not contain a cartridge. Nintendo seems to be experimenting in the market again and has offered players three ways to buy the game. Firstly, there is the standard physical box with the cartridge. Next, players can buy a code and redeem it on the eShop for a digital copy. Finally, fans can opt to buy the "combined" version wherein there will be a physical box with a download code inside.
This new method allows collectors to keep their physical box for collection purposes while having the perks of a digital game. The retail version of Splatoon 2 will launch on July 21 with no word if it will be available overseas.
