Splatoon – Major Update Release Date, New Modes, Weapons, Gear

Nintendo has announced details about their upcoming ‘major update’ for its Wii U shooter Splatoon. This update coming on August 6th.

This will include ‘two new matchmaking modes, new weapon types, an increase to the game’s level-cap, and more than 40 pieces of new gear’, and also a leather jacket and a sushi-chef.

After this update is released, Squad Battle offers, that players “can participate in Ranked Battle rule sets with friends, rather than being teamed up with other players through a random select.”

“After a player creates a squad, friends can be recruited to form a team of two to four inklings. Friends will always play together on the same team and battle against other squads at random.”

This Update also will increase the level from 20 to 50. In addition it will introduce the S and S+ awards in Ranked Battles.

Nintendo has confirmed that they want to add new weapons to the game: “The bucket-like Slosher weapons hurl ink straight ahead at an impressive range. By adjusting the angle, these new weapons can be used to splat opponents who are up high or even on the other side of a wall.”

“With the Gatling-style Splatling, players can charge all-powerful ink. A maximum charge unleashes the full potential of this particular weapon type.”
