Shellendorf Institute will be a brand new stage to the game. Finally, Walleye Warehouse and Arowana Mall are making a return after first appearing in the original Splatoon.

  • New Hairstyle: Four new hairstyles, two for males and two for females will be added to the game.
  • Higher Level Caps: Players will now be able to cap out at level 99.
  • New amiibo Functionality: Tapping a compatible amiibo figure after the update will let players take and share in-game photos in preset locations in Battle Stages, in addition to being able to take photos in Inkopolis Square. Players can also add fun filters to their images.
  • Convenient Gear Swapping: Players will now be able to change gear between matches wihout having to exit to the lobby.

December Update:

  • Clam Blitz will be added as a new ranked gameplay mode. Players will be tasked to collect clams that can be found on the stage. Players must then throw the clams into a basket near their opponents stage. The first team to score 100 will win.
