Plus a long list of fixes and adjustments.






Nintendo has released the version 2.1.0 update for Splatoon 2, which adds Clam Blitz to multiplayer and several adjustments.
Here is the full list of changes, via Nintendo:
  • Changes to Multiplayer
    • Clam Blitz will now appear in Ranked and League Battles. After you’ve played it once, it will also be selectable in Private Battles.
    • Fixed an issue in which a player submerged in a wall or a thin ground surface would take damage from the opposite side of the terrain.
    • Fixed an issue in which a player behind a Splash Wall or a launched Brella would take damage from the opposite side if the distance between the player and the Splash Wall or Brella was close.
    • Fixed an issue on Sturgeon Shipyard in which if a certain wall was hit with a bomb, ink would splash onto a nearby wall that players were occasionally unable to submerge into.
    • Fixed an issue in Splat Zones on Moray Towers in which the border indicating the Zone area was incorrect for part of the Zone.
    • Fixed an issue on Manta Maria in which, if a player did a Splashdown on a specific place, they would be treated as out of bounds after landing and be killed.
    • Fixed an issue in Turf War on Manta Maria in which the area beneath the thick pillars was inkable, and was counted as part of the turf.
    • Fixed an issue in Tower Control on Manta Maria in which players were able to jump from a high spot near the center of the stage to a part of the opponents’ base.
    • Fixed an issue on Snapper Canal in which bombs would disappear without exploding when coming into contact with certain walls.
    • Fixed an issue on Snapper Canal in which, depending on the mode, the area beneath obstacles placed near the center was inkable, was counted as part of the turf, and couldn’t be reclaimed in Splat Zones.
    • Fixed an issue on Blackbelly Skatepark in which players could jump higher than normal near the start point and go over certain obstacles.
    • Fixed an issue on Blackbelly Skatepark in which if a certain wall was hit with a bomb, ink would splash onto a nearby wall that players were occasionally unable to submerge into.
    • Fixed an issue in Tower Control on Blackbelly Skatepark in which players could climb over a wall not intended to be climbed over by jumping from the top of a tower at the right moment.

    • Fixed an issue on MakoMart in which a certain railing could be seen through by pulling the camera close to it.
    • Slightly adjusted the tower path in Tower Control on MakoMart in order to fix a rare issue in which the player could be sandwiched between the tower and terrain, causing them to be pushed inside the terrain.
    • Fixed a rare issue in which, when the player does a Splashdown near a tower, they could pass through the terrain and fall out of the stage.
    • Fixed an issue in which, if the player closed their umbrella the moment that a bomb exploded, neither the umbrella nor the player would take damage.
    • Fixed a rare issue in which two Ink Storm clouds would be generated when a player directly hit a Splash Wall or Brella with an Ink Storm, depending on how it was hit.
    • Fixed an issue in which, when a player using the Inkjet touches water and is forcibly returned to their original place, they would be treated as if drowning and be killed, depending on the place.
    • Fixed an issue in which the camera would abruptly move if the player did a Splashdown near some fences in places like Kelp Dome.

Splatoon 2’s Next Weapon Is The Undercover Brella. December 29, 2017 . 11:00am


The Undercover Brella, with its Ink Mines and Splashdown, is heading to Splatoon 2.

Nintendo has announced Splatoon 2’s next weapon. It is a third Brella variation. The Undercover Brella will be added to the game at 6pm PT/8pm CT/9pm ET on December 29, 2017 and 2am GMT/11am JST on December 30, 2017.

The Undercover Brella is the third Brella weapon in the game. It is a bit more subtle, in terms of appearance, than the Splat Brella or Tenta Brella. (I think it looks like something The Penguin would have used in Batman Returns.) Its sub weapon is the Ink Mine and special weapon is Splashdown.





Splatoon 2 is available for the Nintendo Switch.

Play as Octoling Agent 8.





The Splatoon 2 version 3.0 update will launch in late April, Nintendo announced. It will add 100-plus new pieces of gear, more stages rolling out throughout spring (“Piranha Pit,” “Camp Triggerfish,” and “Wahoo World”) and a new rank (Rank X). Rank X is an extreme rank, even higher than S+.
Nintendo also announced the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, a paid downloadable single-player expansion due out this summer for $19.99.

In it, you play as new character Agent 8, an Octoling who awakens on the platform of a dark subway station without her memories. It appears to be a shady underground test facility. Eight of these facilities are connected by subway, where 80 missions await Agent 8. New stories will unfold that shed light on beloved characters. By clearing the story, you will be able to join multiplayer matches as an Octoling.

Changes... changes everywhere.






The version 3.0.0 update for Splatoon 2 will launch on April 24 at 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET and implements changes to Gear, game music, single-player mode, Ranked Battles, Splatfests, Regular Battles, Multiplayer, Salmon Run, Spectator Mode, and more.




Additionally, on April 24 at 7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET, the “Camp Triggerfish” stage will be added to the game.


Here is the full list of changes, via Nintendo:
  • Changes to Gear
    • New gear has been added to the shops.
  • Changes to game music
    • Added two new songs that will play during multiplayer matches.
  • Changes to single-player mode
    • Fulfilling a certain requirement will cause Callie (from the Squid Sisters!) to appear at Tentakeel Outpost.
  • Changes to Ranked Battle
    • A new rank type, “X Rank” is now available.
  • Changes to Splatfests
    • When Splatfest results are revealed, team voting percentages and win percentages will now display to the hundredths digit after the decimal point.
    • When playing multiple solo Splatfest matches with few allies, your Splatfest Power will not decrease when losing. Now, Splatfest Power will not decrease when in this situation for an even shorter duration.
  • Changes to Regular Battle
    • When playing multiple matches with few allies your Vibe Meter will not change when you lose.
  • Changes to Multiplayer
    • Fixed an issue causing the ink tank display to mistakenly appear empty when in squid form and low on ink.
    • Fixed an issue causing players to occasionally ascend sloped terrain faster than normal by facing the slope and pressing B repeatedly while proceeding.
    • Fixed an issue allowing players submerged in ink on a wall to be detected by the aiming reticle of opponents standing on the other side of the wall.
    • Fixed an issue incorrectly extending super jump distance when attacking with certain weapons just prior to landing during a super jump.
    • Fixed an issue causing players to enter stage objects when the landing point of their super jump was surrounded by obstacles.

    • Fixed an issue causing shots fired from blaster weapons not to ink certain walls.
    • Fixed an issue causing shots fired from chargers by charging for a brief moment when changing from squid to kid form to not fire in the direction of the aiming reticle, and to disappear immediately instead.
    • Fixed an issue causing shots from sloshers to incorrectly pass through certain pieces of stage terrain and ink the ground just beyond that terrain.
    • Fixed an issue causing the hit animation of a Sloshing Machine’s shots to not display in the correct location when the spiral portion of the shot hit placed objects like Splash Walls directly.
    • Fixed an issue causing an unnecessary hit animation to display when a Curling Bomb slid across a Sponge.
    • Fixed an issue causing Sponges not to change size when hit with a Curling Bomb on a particular side.
    • Fixed an issue making it difficult to place Ink Mines on top of the tower in Tower Control.
    • When attacking a player performing a Splashdown special just prior to their descent, the condition of the attacking player’s internet connection determined whether or not damage would be dealt. Damage will now always be dealt correctly regardless of connection condition.
      • Due to this change, the situation will no longer occur in which damage is dealt regardless of whether or not the attacked player appears to take damage or not just prior to starting their descent when performing a Splashdown special.
    • Fixed an issue causing players using brush weapons who performed an attack while simultaneously activating a Splashdown special during a super jump to not perform the Splashdown.
    • Fixed an issue causing explosion damage from an Inkjet’s shots not to register when the shots appear not to hit on the screen of the attacking player, but did not appear to hit on the screen of the player being attacked.
    • Fixed an issue causing a Sting Ray’s firing animation to continue to display on the screens of other players when getting on an Ink Rail while using the Sting Ray.
    • Fixed an issue causing an Ink Storm’s raining animation not to display in the correct location when swimming through its area of effect.

    • When an opponent who splats you is using the Respawn Punisher or Haunt and the effects of those gear abilities is activated, that activation will stand out clearly on the screen while waiting to respawn.
    • Fixed an issue in Tower Control matches causing players caught between a stage terrain feature and the metal grating portion of the tower’s platform to be pushed inside the stage feature.
    • Fixed an issue in Rainmaker matches causing the explosion animation from the Rainmaker’s shots to appear after the actual explosion when its shots hit a Splash Wall or expanded Brella.

    • Fixed an issue in Piranha Pit allowing players to move inside certain stage features from specific corners on those stage features.
    • Fixed an issue in Piranha Pit causing Splash Walls and Sprinklers to break immediately when placed at the base of a conveyor belt.
    • Fixed an issue in Piranha Pit causing Splash Walls and Sprinklers placed on specific conveyor belts to break when they reached the end of the belt.

More details about the Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. E3 2018 tournaments.








Nintendo has announced more information about the teams participating in its two competitive game tournaments at E3 2018—the Splatoon 2 World Championship and the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018.



The tournaments will run from June 11 to 12 at the Belasco Theater at 1050 S. Hill St. in Los Angeles.
Here the details, via Nintendo:
At 12:30 p.m. on Monday, June 11, fans can start lining up at the theater for a chance to receive a wristband that will grant them access to watch the opening rounds of the Splatoon 2 World Championship. Space within the venue is limited and fewer than 500 attendees will be admitted into the event.



Wristbands will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. The doors are scheduled to open at 2:30 p.m., followed by the opening rounds starting at 3:30 p.m. Those who are not able to watch the competition in person can still catch all the action on the livestream at E3.Nintendo.com.


All the action will be called by sportscaster and Nintendo World Championships commentator Jordan Kent, senior editor at CNET Ashley Esqueda and Splatoon 2 U.S. / Canada Inkling Open 2018 announcer Nine. Splatoon 2 teams from around the world have bested their rivals to compete in Los Angeles:
  • Representing Japan is GG BoyZ: Despite coming to E3 2017 as the clear favorites to win, Japan was upset by U.S. team Deadbeat. Dynamon returns to E3 2018 with this new team after winning out over 800 teams in Japan and is looking to bring the trophy home.
  • Representing Australia/NZ is Yeah Nah: Arriving as the undefeated champions of the 2018 AUNZ Splatoon 2 Cup, this new team includes 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational participant Latias, who returns to E3 2018 with the goal of scoring key upsets.
  • Representing U.S. / Canada is SetToDestroyX: After defeating Japan in the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational, key members of the U.S. team Deadbeat became SetToDestroyX and continued their dominance by winning tournament after tournament. They return to E3 2018 ready to defend their title after winning out over 500 teams from across the U.S. and Canada.
  • Representing Europe is BackSquids: The winners of the Splatoon European Championship in Montreux, Switzerland, this German team brings a fresh name and team spirit aplenty to E3 as they try to take on the rest of the world.
At 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 12, fans can line up to receive a badge for the Splatoon 2 World Championships finals and Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018. Space within the venue is limited and fewer than 500 attendees will be admitted into the event. Badges will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Doors are scheduled to open at 12 p.m., with competition starting at 1 p.m.


Each of the competitors in the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament will be playing the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Switch system for the first time at this event. All the Super Smash Bros. action will be called by announcers Jordan Kent, VikkiKitty, Vish and TKbreezy.


“These competitions feature some of the top players from around the world, and they always put on an amazing show,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Each day of the event will feature fun giveaways, and fans are encouraged to dress up and show their Nintendo spirit. Be sure to get there early on both days.”

The competitions are open to everyone to attend and watch, but space will be limited. All attendees are expected to follow the attendee policy at E3.Nintendo.com.



Attendees who are My Nintendo members can check in with their My Nintendo QR Code to receive a gift item, while supplies last. Gift items will be different for each day: The June 11 gift is a Splatoon 2 World Championship Pop Socket, and the June 12 gift is a set of three pins (featuring the Nintendo Switch logo, the My Nintendo logo and a special mystery pin). Giveaway items are limited to one per My Nintendo member per day. Learn more here.
