The Splatoon 2 version 3.0 update will launch in late April, Nintendo announced. It will add 100-plus new pieces of gear, more stages rolling out throughout spring (“Piranha Pit,” “Camp Triggerfish,” and “Wahoo World”) and a new rank (Rank X). Rank X is an extreme rank, even higher than S+.
Nintendo also announced the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, a paid downloadable single-player expansion due out this summer for $19.99. In it, you play as new character Agent 8, an Octoling who awakens on the platform of a dark subway station without her memories. It appears to be a shady underground test facility. Eight of these facilities are connected by subway, where 80 missions await Agent 8. New stories will unfold that shed light on beloved characters. By clearing the story, you will be able to join multiplayer matches as an Octoling.
