New Splatoon Map Available Tonight

Nintendo has announced Splatoon’s latest map, Kelp Dome, will be available to players tonight at 7 PM PST. Those familiar with the game’s single player mode may recognize the new map as one of the first venues to feature Octolings, the Inkling race’s arch nemesis. According to the Squid Research Lab, Kelp Dome “takes the shape of a nearly perfect square”, which should make for some tight, tense, and frantic Turf Wars. The map is the third update to Splatoon, which launched to critical and consumer acclaim on May 29. The game’s initially sparse content selection has steadily been fleshed out, and Nintendo plans to continue that trend throughout the summer.
