Watch: Nintendo's Squid Ink Game "Splatoon" Preview

Nintendo unveiled its new Wii U game "Splatoon" on Tuesday, featuring squid-human characters in a 4-vs-4 ink shooting game. Set for release in 2015, the premise is simple: try to cover the most square footage with ink. The best part? You can decide whether you want to be a human or a squid.

TIME tried it out at the E3 conference — watch how to play in the video above.
