Nintendo has committed to the squid kid movement. Splatoon 2 seems to be doing well on The Nintendo Switch. To capitalize Nintendo announced they’d partnered with Viz Media to release a Manga alongside the game to provide more lore to the squid kid universe.
It looks like they’ve taken things a step further. They’ve transformed the manga into a stop motion comic book. If you’re unfamiliar with that format it’s basically a comic book read to you with limited animation. It’s a middle ground between art and animation. You can watch the first episode online right now. Check it out below.
