Original (11/30): Nintendo Switch Online previously offered users icons for Splatoon 3, but the game is now a featured title once again. There’ll be five sets that rotate weekly on every Wednesday until January 9, 2023.

As usual, there are characters, backgrounds, and frames to choose from. Each one costs 5 or 10 Platinum Points as earned through My Nintendo. Once you’ve claimed an icon, it’s yours to claim forever – even if your subscription to Nintendo Switch Online expires.

Splatoon 3 update 2.0.0

Nintendo has announced a massive version 2.0.0 update for Splatoon 3, which is going live on Splatoon 3. This ties in with the upcoming Chill Season 2022.

Chill Season is bringing along lots of content, which has been previously discussed and further mentioned in the patch notes. Outside of that, there are tons of adjustments coming to weapons, ranked (ability to reset your rank), Salmon Run, Splatfests, and more. A truckload of fixes are planned as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that after installing version 2.0.0, you won’t be able to claim any Super Sea Snails from the Pokemon Splatfest. Make sure to claim them before downloading the data.

Below are the full patch notes for the Splatoon 3 version 2.0.0 update:

Splatoon 3 best weapons

The arsenal of weapons available in Splatoon 3 is varied and complex, which can make it difficult to pick one weapon to focus on, but we’ve put together a guide detailing twenty of the very best to make that choice easier. We also have brief descriptions of each weapon to explain what makes them so great.

Of note, this guide will mostly cover weapons from the perspective of Anarchy Battles, the game’s ranked mode and the one used in competitive play. Furthermore, it should be noted that every weapon in Splatoon 3 is viable to some degree, assuming you aren’t playing in a highly competitive setting. The weapons detailed in this guide are simply the ones that will have the easiest time achieving good results if used well.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet sales Japan

Based on the latest sales data, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet have collectively seen the biggest game launch ever in Japan.
