Multiplayer is the core of Splatoon 2. The game features a mechanism where players around the globe compete on a common battleground under two different teams. This is fun, but what if you want to play Splatoon 2 offline? You want to play it with friends on your local wifi connection on a split-screen. Let’s debug this problem.
Can you play Splatoon 2 Offline?
Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion adds 80 new single-player missions in the game. This is a way to play this game offline, but if you are looking for split-screen support then here is the bad news. Splatoon 2 does not support split-screen. Two players will require two Nintendo Switch to play this game.
Lots of players are going through this and trying to find a way to play this game offline with their loved ones. But yet Splatoon 2 does not bring direct split-screen support, allowing players to play on a single couch. Splatoon 2 does allow a group of players to play together on a single match. But only if they have separate Nintendo Switch consoles.
You can play story mode online or offline anytime you want. With this, there are few more ranked odes you can play in the offline mode. The game does offer ample content to try under the single-player hood, but completely lacks settings to setup Split-Screen.
Here is the list of Nintendo Switch games that support Split-Screen and Couch Co-op:
- Luigi’s Mansion 3
- Overcooked 2
- Rocket League
- Super Mario Party
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
- Overcooked! Special Edition
If you are looking for games with split-screen support you can try one of the above. Players with the separate joystick can enjoy the games using a different joy-stick controller and on a single Switch. In the future developers might consider an option to release an update for Split-screen for Splatoon 2.
