After the winners of the Splatoon 2 tournament were crowned, Nintendo took an opportunity to announce a new wave of updates coming to the game. Previously, Nintendo planned to support this game through the Summer, but now Nintendo has plans to update the game even longer. And that wasn’t even the biggest news—they also announced the release date of Splatoon 2‘s Octo Expansion: tomorrow.

Some new weapons were shown off that will be coming later this year, as well as a new stage that features a resort location with a swimming pool. After that, a new trailer was shown for the Octo Expansion, which will be releasing tomorrow evening.

On top of this, Nintendo plans to launch even more Splatoon amiibo this year, based on the Octolings you’ll be playing as in the Octo Expansion. Check out the new Splatoon 2 footage above!

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
