[B]Squidboards Splat Series - October is set for Saturday, October 7th![/B] [B][B]Registration is open for TEAMS and FREE AGENTS![/B][/B] [/SIZE]
Eight cities are set to hold forty events in this major series, the first of which start here:

- Sapporo (September 26)...
Or at least ready to play more ranked soon, as Rainmaker will be released this upcoming Friday in another Splatoon update!
Being the third of the ranked matchmaking trio, Rainmaker asks you deliver a golden fish to the other team's base, similar to the Bomb gametype in the Halo series. Though be warned, it won't be easy. The Rainmaker has a shield to protect itself, and can only be held for 60 seconds. Teamwork and bodyguarding will be essential. Luckily, whoever is holding the Rainmaker is not defenseless, as the fish of gold can be charged up and fire huge whirlpools of ink! (Think like a shorter range inkzooka, but with much more width! AND SCARY SOUND EFFECTS!)
Coming from this website, we can see all the weapons, their subs and their specials that are to be released. Looking around the site a bit more, it seems that this may be every weapon left in the game, but it is yet to be confirmed. Knowing Nintendo, they may always have another trick up their sleeve when releasing new patches and updates.
Here is a list of all the unreleased weapons. For more info on the weapons including pricing and how each weapon affects movement, check out the website!
Beyond this point are the details, so don't look if you want to keep it a surprise!
The big August update has been looming on the horizon for a long time, but it's finally here!
This is the big one - party matchmaking, private games, level/ranking increases, map changes, and more. Truly the largest and most significant to the final product since launch.
The developers were generous enough to provide us with official patch notes. Read on to learn more about what the update brings to the table:
Thanks to the technicians and interns over at Splatoon HQ, the map that started it all is getting a major rehaul a few months following launch.
Some changes include a different location for the base trees, opened-up chokepoints and mid, and different side-path structures.
You can check out a full tour of the new map with the help of a new video from GameXplain:
Hey there squids and kids! We have a few fun things we wanted to share today so let's get right to it. It seems the next Splatfest for North America has been announced and it looks to be quite the battle. This will pit lovers of roller coasters against those who like water slides! It will be interesting to see which of these action packed rides will win the battle. It will begin on July 17th so Callie and Marie had better get ready to dance and sing once again! While players should keep an eye out for...
Get your suckers ready for a new kind of battle! This week, Ranked Battle gains an additional gametype. This new mode, dubbed "Tower Control," will rotate alongside Splat Zones in Ranked Battle.
"Once someone jumps onto the tower, it starts moving along a set path toward the other team’s goal. If the tower doesn’t arrive at either goal before time runs out, the team that’s moved it closest toward their opponent’s goal wins. Ride the tower all the...
One of the first things discussed was matchmaking in Splatoon which is done in a very unique way. According to Amano it actually pairs up players with similar play-styles where levels are more of “an indicator for how long the...
