Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami recently spoke to Polygon about the game’s future, including any influence that the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service may have on Splatoon 2. Nogami isn’t worried, saying that “we don’t think it will have no influence. We imagine it will have some sort of influence or effect by the addition of Nintendo Switch Online. [But] we want to use Nintendo Switch Online’s addition as a way to redouble our commitment to the community and reaffirm for them that we’re going to support this game more and more”.
Nogami also talked about the possibility of Splatoon 2 receiving paid premium multiplayer content. Nogami says that “it’s not to say that there’s no possibility that we’ll ever consider releasing some paid premium multiplayer content. The main thing we want to maintain is this even playing field for players”. According to Polygon, Nogami also said that “the team has no current plans for more single-player, premium releases”.
