Splatoon 2 is being updated to Ver. 4 in the near future and will bring with it a selection of new gear, new stages, new songs, and even new modes.
The September 2018 Nintendo Direct showed off an awesome new anime-inspired trailer that gives us a glimpse at some of the new content that we can look forward to in the Ver. 4 update for Splatoon 2. A section of the trailer was reserved for showing off a new spray paint grenade weapon. This weapon requires the player to shake it to build up power before it is unleashed.
While it is a pretty neat trailer, a lot more information for Splatoon 2’s Ver. 4 was revealed over at the Squid Research Lab Tumblr. This page goes into great detail about an additional mode that is being added to Splatfests known as Pro mode:
Pro mode is for those who want to go solo and push themselves to the limit. In Pro mode, you’re judged on your Splatfest Power. Raise it high enough and you could make it into the Splatfest Top 100! In this mode, you increase your clout by beating the opposing team. You get more clout for beating teams with a higher Splatfest Power.
In addition to the above, 10x Battles will be added in both divisions. These are rare matches that will occur if you are lucky, and if you win, your contribution points will be multiplied by 10! And believe or not, there is a rumor that super rare 100x Battles could also occur!
If your friend wins a 10x Battle or if someone wins a 100x match, teams may appear on the big screen in Inkopolis Square. Also, if you’re in the lobby or during matchmaking, such information will pop up on your game screen like a news flash. Team nicknames are also shown in Regular mode, so you may want to try scoring a cool team name and winning these rare matches for bragging rights!
There is no current release date for Splatoon 2’s Ver. 4, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
