Splatoon 2 is getting some big updates for the holidays

Splatoon 2 is getting some big updates for the holidays

This update also increases the level cap all the way to 99, and adds the option to reset your level back around to Level ★1 so you can keep progressing. This update includes four new battle stages - Mako Mart, Arowana Mall, Shellendorf Institute, and Walleye Warehouse. Teamwork is required to use the fan lifts effectively.

New Hairstyle: When customizing an Inkling, four new hairstyles will be available to choose from - two each for female and male characters.

If you've maxed out your level at 50, you will be happy to hear Nintendo is increasing the level cap to 99.

Between these two modes, we'll also see over 140 new outfits, brand new hairstyles including bangs, bowl cuts, and curly pigtails, and music from a new band called the Bottom Feeders that fuses Celtic sea shanties with...uh, punk rock.

Let's break the updates down by when they roll out.

Convenient Gear Swapping: Players that want to change gear between battles in Regular Battle, Ranked Battle and Splatfest Battle (Solo) won't have to exit to the lobby anymore! Two more updates are planned to release before the end of 2017 and the first of them will hit the Switch this Friday, so get ready to continue fighting on additional multiplayer stages and one new level in Salmon Run. There will be a basket where your team has to put the clams in, while fighting the hostile team and simultaneously defend their own basket, and once a side reached 100 points, they win, but remember your opponent can kill you and collect all your clams too.

Nintendo teased a special announcement earlier today for Splatoon 2, and now we know what they were talking about, as this was regarding the plans for the rest of the year. The baskets are protected by a barrier, which much be destroyed first. "Not to mention the extra-satisfying opportunity to steal opponents' clams by splatting them..."

The first Splatoon 2 update arrives on November 24 (this Friday), while the second update will be available sometime in mid-December.

Splatoon 2 stays fresh with two major updates. Excited for the new content?
