The latest edition of EDGE magazine contains plenty of information about the highly anticipated Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch. One thing that players of the game will be pleased to learn is that the map rotation is now every two hours rather than four hours. This should no doubt come as welcome news to many.
Though with just two maps, one brand-new main weapon and a single game type, we’re left with as many questions as answers. Happily, Nogami is able to answer some of them, including the reason behind the team’s decision to limit the map rotation to two at a time. “We feel that part of the gameplay is actually selecting which weapons would be best for that combination of two maps,” he explains. “In Splatoon 2, the maps rotate every two hours, so it’ll be a much faster cycle than the previous game.”
