When the first Nintendo Direct was announced since the passing of Satoru Iwata Nintendo fans were excited. Well in proper fashion Nintendo brought on the announcements and talked about how they would be keeping Splatoon VERY fresh. New maps, gears, a special tournament, and more were all included among the announcements so sit tight and get ready for some exciting news!
Let's start with the two Inkoming stages: Museum d’Alfonsino and Mahi-Mahi resort! Museum d’Alfonsino features five rotating platforms that Inklings must travel across and maneuver to achieve victory. With lots of famous artwork parodied throughout the stage it is bound to be fun to fight on. Mahi-Mahi Resort has a unique gimick where the stage starts off partially covered with water and halfway through the battle more turf becomes available.
FORTY, yes FORTY new pieces of gear will be coming to Splatoon in the next update including winter styles to choose from. A large selection was shown off by SplatoonJP, the official Japanese Splatoon Twitter account. With so much new gear to try Squids will surely be staying VERY fresh!
Also announced in the direct was a special tournament announcement! The Nintendo Treehouse will be hold a special 'Splatournament' set to be streamed live on Nintendo's Youtube and Twitch channels. The tournament will also show off various options for tournament rules as well as details on how to set up tournaments both in person and online.
