Nintendo closed out today’s Direct broadcast with a fresh batch of news on Splatoon 2, which the company revealed will be launching on July 21.

The colorful, ink-based shooter will be releasing alongside new versions of the Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Inkling Squid Amiibo. This time around, players will be able to save their favorite gear combinations to their figures, allowing them to easily take their favorite outfits to another person’s game. Players can also summon and “befriend” their Amiibo, which will periodically gift you with exclusive armor sets. Splatoon 2 will be compatible will all previous Splatoon Amiibo as well, though Nintendo hasn’t detailed their functionality for the title.

Nintendo also revealed a new mode for Splatoon 2 called Salmon Run. A variation of the typical Horde mode found in most shooters, Salmon Run has four players mowing down waves of new Chum enemies and harvesting the Power Eggs they drop. The ultimate goal of the mode is withstand the waves of enemies long enough to retrieve rare Golden Eggs and earn special rewards.
