During this morning’s special Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that it will be adding additional content to Splatoon after launch. Updates will include new multiplayer modes, gear, weapons, and “more technical” maps. All of the new content will be free, but paid DLC may still be on the way.
Two more matchmaking options will also be offered in August, allowing players to engage in ink-based warfare with friends in new and interesting ways. Nintendo noted that new content will be released every two or three weeks, which should greatly aid Splatoon’s longevity as a multiplayer experience.
