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....

All the squids and kids in Japan are getting in their freshest gear because the biggest turf war of all time is about to go down!

Eight cities are set to hold forty events in this major series, the first of which start here:

  • Sapporo (September 26)...

We hope squids are ready to make it RAIN!

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!)

In the ever heart-racing race to secure turf and stay fresh, data miners have been racing to find out just what we can get our tentacles on in the (hopefully) near future.

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:
