I doubt it. The way Nintendo has gone about monetizing things, they cautiously test the waters instead of jumping in head first. Pokémon Shuffle is that guinea pig. Splatoon is positioned as something that is too big for an experiment that has a good chance of backfiring.

This. Also, this game has quite a bit of hype backing it up, they don't want to risk killing it with microtransactions.

So much this.  I littlerally shuddered when I read the thread title.  Any game but Splatoon.

I hope not. I made a pact not to buy retail games that have microtransactions, and it would be a shame for me personally to not be able to play this game.



Oh hell no! Nintendo? Microtransactions? cycycychris please.

Me!

Trying to get people worked up over nothing, for shame.



You're literally seeing something that isn't there. It's just in game currency. There's nothing that even remotely implied micro transactions.



Well, this is new.

Read.

So they revealed that you can use money to uprgrade your gear in the most recent direct. Which they also reveal a microtransaction laced game with pokemon candy crush simulator. And with Steel Drive: Sub Wars also being completely microtransaction laced. I think with this money system, Nintendo might try to jump into the microtransaction business. They only mention earning them in the multiplayer mode, but do you really think they would reveal something like that this early on. Seems like the perfect way to do. While very ungamer friendly, they are in the bussiness to make money. While I do think it's possible they will add these, I do feel it's still very unlikely.

I will add that I think if it was made by any other company(especially Ubisoft and EA) than Nintendo, this game would have microtransactions the way it's set up.


Thought it was in-game currency.



Gotta figure out how to set these up lol.

I will refuse to ever do microtransactions; I don't care if they put it in Bayonetta, Monster Hunter, or Mario, I'll have none of it.

This! Splatoon looks like a fun shooter, and I'd doubt Nintendo will ruin it for microtransactions.
