  1. I love how not too long ago they said the updates to Splatoon with new content would cease yet it’s still getting new content. Now this is what I fucking call long term support! Not unlike what they said with Hyrule Warriors was going to get support for a long run! <.<

    1. For me, they’ve redeemed the barebone release of this game at 60 bucks when it was worth 20 bucks at best during it’s initial release now! Now if I wasn’t fucking turned off by Wii U, I’d definitely get Splatoon. :/

  2. As a whole, I think Nintendo has been doing a pretty good job when it comes to updates and DLC. Especially with Smash Bros, Splatoon and what they did with the Amiibo functions.

  3. I am really back to playing this game. Its fun.. i wonder in the future will they allow 3 stages.. I say that because it looks like when online the stage display has a gap as if they were thinking of adding 3 stages to play off of every 4 hours instead of two.

    1. Or just do the more sensible thing and allow players to vote for what map they want to play.

      I want to see new maps in the sequel, but I really hope Urchin Underpass, Flounder Heights, and Piranha Pit return.
