Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome. As some of you inklings probably know, I am reasonably familiar with Splatoon content production. Well, today I am happy to announce that @TheRapture will be starting a Squidboards content initiative and we need YOUR help to make this happen.

If you have experience with Twitch streaming and/or YouTube video production, please send me a private message either here on Squidboards or on Twitter.

As always, stay fresh!

Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome! Nintendo just announced a new 2.2.0 update for Splatoon. They made some adjustments to the ranking system, as well as some light tweaks to game mechanics within ranked game modes. However, the big news with this update comes from Nintendo's weapon balancing.

Notably, Splash Walls, Krakens, and even Inkzookas were all nerfed. Not even the mighty Dynamo Roller was able to escape weapon balancing this time.

If you want all of the specifics, Nintendo has actually provided a comprehensive list...

Hi squids! It's Hank from Nintendome. Nintendo has just announced its weekly content release; this time we are getting the Custom E-Liter 3K Scope as well as the Custom Range Blaster. They are going to be hitting Inkopolis tonight at 7 PM PT!

These are subtle variations of weapons that we already have. The Custom E-Liter 3K Scope gets added range and decreased mobility with the addition of the scope whereas the Custom Range Blaster gains the Splatterbomb sub weapon as well as the Kraken special weapon....

Hey there squids and kids! It seems competitive Splatoon just keeps getting more and more exciting with some seriously explosive growth. Another team has been signed by an eSports organization: Squid Squad Spades has now been signed by BitterSweetGG! Having won tournaments like SCL Super Ultra Turbo Edition, Booyah Battle 1, and The Salty Splatoon #1 it is no surprise the team has been snatched up by an eSports org....

Nintendo has just announced its Splatoon content release for the week. This time, we are getting the new Carbon Roller Deco weapon and it will be available tonight at 7 PM PT!

This familiar weapon trades in its infamous Burst Bombs and the Inkzooka for the Seeker and the new Seeker Bomb Rush! Other than that, the Carbon Roller Deco is the same Carbon Roller you have grown to love (or in some cases, hate).

While Burst Bombs were a crucial part of the Carbon Roller's kit, we are excited to see how players take advantage of the...

It's not anticipated for this to be an incredibly widespread issue, but one or two Squidboards users have already encountered this problem, and we wanted to make sure to alert everyone.

A kernel exploit for the Wii U has now been made public for Wii U's on an older firmware version. The simple and relevant explanation of what this means is that it is now much easier for unscrupulous folks to modify their Splatoon save files.

The very negative side effect of this, is it means a person could potentially modify their save file to change their character ID from 1 or 2 (Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl respectively) to 3, which represents Octolings.

Happy Update Friday Everyone! (AND BOY IS IT!)


Today (or Tomorrow for our EU players) at 7pm PT, the new Tri Slosher will be available from Sheldon! As opposed to the Slosher's 1 ink trail, the Tri will toss 3 wider trails, but with less power and range (according to the data mining, think the range of the Aerospray or Splattershot Jr). The Kit for the Tri will come with Disruptors and the Bubbler Special, excellent for a support role or...

The fine folks over at EndGameTV are making a big splash in the competitive Splatoon scene; they have officially announced Inkstorm, their initial foray into hosting competitive Splatoon tournaments. The truly interesting aspect of Ink Storm is their prize pool: EGTV has promised up to 1000 USD in prizes for the various teams that place well in this tournament. Keep in mind that there is a 20 USD entry fee required to register but that is a small price to pay to take part in what will inevitably be a monumental moment in...

Nintendo must be on the Messy side of the latest EU Splatfest, because new renders of Splatoon gear have appeared after some more data mining!

Super Mario Maker, of all places... Yeah, the game where everyone makes obscenely hard levels with pixel perfect jumps... more like Kaizo Mario Maker....
