This Week’s New Releases + Game News: June 1, 2015

New Retail Releases
vgl-pickThe Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Splatoon (Wii U), Nintendo’s entry into the team-based shooter category. But instead of gruff military guys, Splatoon is populated by kids who have the ability to transform into squids. They use this power to literally paint the map and the object isn’t to get the most kills (though you can still do that), but to cover more of the floor with your team’s color.
