'Splatoon'

In Nintendo's "Splatoon," where players wield paint guns instead of real ones, the goal of multiplayer competition is to cover the majority of the map in one's team color.

(For: Wii U)

Bright, buoyant and altogether fresh, "Splatoon" wasn't just the new shooter tired players needed, it was the new world the also-tired Nintendo needed, too. But "Splatoon" is traditional where it counts: True to most of Nintendo's games, its multiplayer paint gun wars are accessible enough to get good quick, but deep enough to only get great with time. So, it's also sort of like painting for real.
