Later this month, Splatoon arrives on the Wii U from Nintendo's first-party EAD Kyoto studio. While it's been chiefly touted by Nintendo as a multiplayer game, it also includes a full-fledged single-player campaign, complete with its own enemy types, environments, and boss battles.

Above, watch us take on the first of Splatoon's bosses in a clever fight that evokes some of our favorites from Mario's recent 3D outings, right down to the rule of three.

Splatoon launches for the Wii U on May 29 for $59.99.
