Dive into a fresh new season of Splatoon 3 (and newly launched DLC)!
Looking for the right time to jump into the Splatoon™ 3 game? Well, a new season is upon us—perfect for both seasoned vets and promising paralarvae* alike.
Fresh Season brings with it:
2 newly added stages (Um’ami Ruins & Manta Maria)
2 new Special Weapons (Kraken Royale & Super Chump)
12 newly added weapon sets
The “Eggstra work” event for Salmon Run (Please stay tuned for more details!)
The debut of a new King Salmonid (Horrorboros) during the next Big Run event**. Mark your calendars because Big Run will take place March 3 at 4 p.m. PT to March 5 at 4 p.m. PT.
Ability to battle friends in Tableturf Battle**
A new seasonal catalog
A Jukebox which you can use to play some fresh tunes—check it out in the Lobby!
New and returning stuff in the shops
This content is part of a free update. Update your game on your Nintendo Switch™ system to access everything in the Fresh Season (internet connection required)!
Ah, but that’s not all the new stuff. Let’s break out a handy little section for the next part.
Wave 1 is out now
If you’ve been (metaphorically) glued to your Splatoon 3 news feed, you may have already heard about the Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass – Inkopolis & Side Order DLC***. This paid DLC includes access to two waves of content, and the first is out right now!
Wave 1 is your ticket back to Inkopolis, the original hub city from the original Splatoon game. You’ll meet some familiar faces, see some familiar sights, and be able to catch a Squid Sisters concert during Splatfests. Wave 2 will add a new single-player campaign called Side Order…but you’ll learn more about that one a bit later!
Purchasers will also receive immediate access to “Battle-boosting bonuses,” which includes additional in-game currency and food/drink tickets.
Good luck out there, Inklings and Octolings.
*Fun fact: “Paralarvae” is a term that describes newly hatched squids or octopuses. Betcha weren’t expecting a science fact today.
