Nintendo’s Colorful Title Splatoon Offers “Color Lock” Feature for Color-Blind Players

Splatoon, Nintendo’s upcoming third-person shooter/platformer title, is a very colorful game in which ink colors plays a huge role in the gameplay.

However, Nintendo has created a very thoughtful “Color Lock” option for players who happen to be color-blind and normally wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy the experience (credit to NintenDaan¬†for the video):

It’s great to see this kind of inclusiveness and consideration in gaming, especially in such an overlooked disorder like color-blindness.
