How to create an arcade-style arcade-like platformer for the Nintendo Switch
The latest Nintendo Switch game, Splatoon 2, will feature an arcade mode that lets players battle other players using a pair of clamps.
You can create your own arcade mode in the form of a platformer that you can control using a Wii U controller, but the platformer won’t have a touchscreen.
Splatoon’s arcade mode is the result of a collaboration between Nintendo and Gearbox, developer of Borderlands 2.
A Nintendo Switch port is still in the works.
Gearbox’s Borderlands 2 will feature a “superpowered squid,” the same mechanic that lets the player take on waves of enemies using a set of clamped grappling hooks.
