Today, the Japanese Splatoon Twitter account highlighted a small change being made to Roller weapons in Splatoon 2. If you keep ZR pressed for a certain amount of time while moving around, you get a slight speed boost. This should help Roller players with covering more turf and with more easily closing the distance to opposing players.

A brand new stage for Splatoon 2 has been revealed on the series’ official Japanese Twitter account. Today, we have a look at the Diadema Amphitheater.

He also further clarified how Switch’s new mobile app will work for online play, spoke about improving the visuals this time around, and confirmed HD Rumble. If that wasn’t enough, Nogami also noted that Splatoon on Wii U won’t have its online play discontinued anytime soon.
