Splatoon 3 update 8.0.0

Splatoon 3 is gearing up for its next big update, which will be version 8.0.0. Nintendo just posted the patch notes.

The next update rings in the Sizzle Season 2024 for Splatoon 3. There’s a lot of new content in store between new weapons, the Lemuria Hub, new catalog, and new Tableturf Battle cards. That’s along with lots of changes and fixes.

Here’s the full rundown:

Splatoon 3 Sizzle Season 2024

May 16: Nintendo just announced the new Sizzle Season 2024 for Splatoon 3. The fun begins on June 1, 2024.

As usual, the season will introduce new content for players at no extra cost. Lemuria Hub will be added as a new stage. Additionally, Wellstring V and Mint Decavitator are planned as new weapons. For Salmon Run, Big Big Run and Attack of the Triumvirate have been teased. Expect new music as well.

The next Splatfest for Splatoon 3 is in the books for the Same Ol’ vs. Bucket List vs. Save the Day event, and we have the results. This time around, Nintendo asked what players would do at the world’s end.

At halftime, we saw that Bucket List had the slimmest of leads at 34.06 percent. Following in second was Same Ol’ with 33.36 percent. Save the Day was last, but just right behind at 32.58 percent.

how to beat cohozuna Splatoon 3

A little while ago, we published guides on how to beat both Horrorboros and Megalodontia in Splatoon 3. This time, it’s time to talk about how to beat Cohozuna, the original King Salmonid that’s been present in Splatoon 3 ever since its launch.

Whereas Horrorboros is generally the easiest King Salmonid to defeat right now and Megalodontia is the most difficult, Cohozuna lies somewhere in between. It doesn’t have any particular weak spot, so the fight all comes down to how fast you can defeat other Boss Salmonids and how well you can aim your Golden Egg cannon. If you’re looking for tips and tricks on how to beat Cohozuna, then let’s get right into our guide.


splatoon 3 stages tier list

As Splatoon 3’s content cycle comes to an end, we figured it’d be a good time to take a look at everything the game has to offer with a stages tier list.

At the time of writing, there are currently 23 stages in the game, and Sizzle Season 2024 is confirmed to be adding Lemuria Hub. In terms of quality, Splatoon 3 has had it kind of rough. In Splatoon 2, a good chunk of stages had several different routes to take. On stages like Kelp Dome and Skipper Pavillon, there was plenty of open space to hide away and claim turf. That’s not the case in Splatoon 3, however; for the most part, its stages are smaller and much more constrained, which winds up favoring long-rangers. This, in turn, makes it difficult for casual players to participate without being picked off by chargers and Splatlings. That’s not a very healthy trait for a game to have, and stages that exacerbate this issue will be reflected as such in our ranking.

May 2: A new Splatfest is starting soon for Splatoon 3. This time, the game wants to know what you’d do in the face of the end of the world. Same Ol’, Bucket List, and Save the World are all options.

You’ll be able to give input when the Splatest is held on May 18. The event will conclude on May 20.


Stages Missing From Splatoon 3

Though all three Splatoon games are rather similar in terms of graphics and gameplay, the first two entries in the series are home to several exclusive stages that haven’t made it back to Splatoon 3 (at least, not at the time of writing). Among fans of the game, Splatoon 3’s map design is often considered one of its greatest weaknesses – mainly, the stages’ lack of alternate routes to take. Splatoon 1 and 2’s exclusive stages generally have lots of alternate routes, so we aren’t sure what happened. Regardless, today we’re looking at a list of stages not in Splatoon 3 and which ones we might see in updates.

Splatoon 3 guides

Today, we’re rounding up our full collection of Splatoon guides all in one place. We’ve categorized them into two sections; guides for the base game and guides for Side Order.

Splatoon 3 is still going strong – presumably until September, when its new content schedule may come to a close – but it’s still worth playing even beyond that date! Splatoon is easy to learn, but difficult to master, and there are plenty of modes to master. We’ve got guides on the ranked modes, Splatfests, Salmon Run, Big Run, and even their respective King Salmonid bosses. If you’re looking for some Splatoon tips and tricks, you’ve come to the right place.


Splatoon 3 Tower Control

Tower Control is one of the tougher ranked modes available in Splatoon 3. Hence its name, the mode is centered around a tower that first appears at the center of the stage. As usual, Tower Control is a lot easier when you have the ability to coordinate with a team of friends over voice chat. Whether you have access to that option or not, we’ve put together a list of tips to help you get better at the game.


Splatoon 3 Splatfest results Baby Chicks vs. Li'l Bunnies vs. Bear Cubs

Nintendo held another Splatfest this weekend, and now that the event is over, we have the results for the Baby Chicks vs. Li’l Bunnies vs. Bear Cubs battle. Players were asked to choose which fuzzy fluffiness they like most.

The halftime report indicated that things were very close. Li’l Bunnies had the lead with 33.55 percent, but Team Bear Cubs and Team Baby Chicks were right behind at 33.48 percent and 32.97 percent respectively.
