New Splatoon 2 Maps Coming This Week

New Splatoon 2 Maps Coming This Week

Despite the trickle of smaller weapon updates over the last few weeks, I was starting to cool off on Splatoon 2, so the timing of this new stuff is ideal. You can expect more such updates from Nintendo since all post-launch content for Splatoon 2 will be free.

Splatoon 2 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide. The map features an abandoned outpost in the middle of the sea, left behind due to rising sea levels.

There's also a new Salmon Run stage called Lost Outpost that's available tomorrow. The map launches on August 23 for local multiplayer and will go live online during that week.




In a special video announcement from the Squid Research Lab, producer Hisashi Nogami revealed that the Manta Maria stage will join the rotation for Turf War and Ranked Battle modes from Saturday 26th August.

The Bubble Blower fires up to three big bubbles, which explode once doused in ink.

While Splatoon 2 has been receiving new weapons with some regularity it has been lacked in the new maps department. The Bubble Blower will be coupled with the game's next free DLC weapon, the Forge Splattershot Pro, which is coming to the game next week, on September 1. The bubbles also serve a defensive objective, as they can protect you from enemy fire. Nintendo has regularly added new weapons intothe game, updating it with a new option every week.
