Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass Announced; Wave 1 Coming Spring 2023

At today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that Splatoon 3 would be receiving a new Expansion Pass, which will add two waves of additional content to the main game. The first wave will add the original Splatoon 1 hub: Inkopolis, and will be coming this Spring, 2023. Furthermore, on Wave 2, a new content called Side Order was also teased. The Expansion Pass is currently available for pre-order on Nintendo eShop.

Splatoon 3 is the brand-new sequel to Splatoon 2. In this new game in the Splatoon series, you’ll leave Inkopolis behind and head to a new region: the Splatlands. Its heart is a new city where battle-savvy Inklings and Octolings gather: Splatsville, also known as the “City of Chaos.”

Splatoon 3 introduces various features to the action-shooter series, including weapons such as the bow weapon, customization options, and movement abilities to bring to the returning 4v4 Turf Wars matches. Splatoon 3 is currently available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
