At the end of Nintendo's Arms-themed Nintendo Direct last night, Splatoon fans got a bit of a treat in a new trailer showcasing the brand new single-player mode in Splatoon 2.

'Callie—of Squid Sisters fame—has gone missing and it’s up to you, with the help of Marie, to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish while battling against the Octarian army,' reads the official Nintendo blurb. 'Use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling, or the new Dualies.'  

In the trailer below you can get a gist of what's coming when going solo in the sequel to one of the more lauded Wii U games.

Splatoon 2 is out on Nintendo Switch on July 21.
