Other changes

At the same time, we have expanded our weapon options by enhancing the capabilities of certain excellent weapons at close range.

  • We will monitor the changes after this update and make further adjustments to Splatoon 2 in the future.
  • If you download the latest update data, you will not be able to communicate with players using the old update data in The Shoal.
    • This update also includes changes not listed here, such as improved gameplay experience.
    • Sufficient space is required in the internal system memory or microSD card to download the update.
    • After downloading the update, you can continue to use the saved data.
