Splatoon - SplatNet service ending Sept. 30th, online play to continue

The SplatNet service for the Splatoon game on the Wii U system will be permanently closed on September 30th, 2017. Online multiplayer battles will still be available, as this update only affects the SplatNet service. We sincerely thank all players for using this companion site for the original Splatoon game.

And so it begins... If Nintendo shut down the servers for Splatoon the most important part of the game will never playable again. Thats the reasons why games like Splatoon should have the online multiplayer playable offline with bots. Like Mario Kart have offline cups with bots.

Splatoon on the Wii U have already a pretty good AI for bots in the singleplayer. So it would not much work to do that.

I don't think 'it' begins quite yet. Splatoon and SMM aren't that old yet, so they won't shut down Wii U online any time soon.

If online multiplayer will still be available, the what is Splatnet? What will no longer be available exactly?
