Get your pirate hat.
Nintendo announced three major updates for Splatoon 2 today, and fans of the game have a lot of new content to look forward to over the next couple of weeks. You can check out the update trailer down below.
First off, we’re getting a new Salmon Run map called The Lost Outpost. This map features a lot of walls that can block your line of sight, so it’ll be important for team members to communicate with each other. It’ll be made available in the game later today in an update.
The Manta Maria map was also announced for Regular and Ranked battles, and players will be able to duke it out onboard a large pirate ship. It looks pretty swanky, and it should be fun to see what strategies and flanking routes players can discover here. This map will be available this weekend.
Lastly, the Bubble Blower weapon was also announced. It allows players to release bubbles from their weapons which will explode in friendly ink if an ally shoots at it. Bubbles can also disappear if enemies shoot at it enough, but it can help to shield you from incoming attacks. The Bubble Blower will drop in the game next week.
Splatoon 2 is now available on the Nintendo Switch.
