Nintendo has outlined two huge updates coming to Splatoon 2 on November 23 and in December.
Both updates are significant, but the one dropping this week will be adding more “stuff”. Nintendo will be rolling out new stages over the next few weeks, including MakoMart, Shellendorf Institute, Walleye Warehouse, and Arowana Mall. Salmon Run is also getting a new Salmonid Smokeyard stage.
On the gear front, roughly 140 pieces will be added. These include shoes, headgear and clothes, returning items from the original Splatoon, and more. Also incoming are new hairstyles, new battle music, higher level caps, new amiibo functionality, and convenient gear swapping.
In December, Splatoon 2 is adding Clam Blitz. Players will compete to collect clams scattered around the stage. The clam follows the player after they pick one up, and you’ll need to throw the clam into the basket near the opponent’s base. The first team to score 100 points wins. However, you’ll need to break a barrier by first collecting 10 clams and earning a Power Clam.
We have a ton of additional details about both updates below, along with a trailer.
