  • Changes to Multiplayer
    • Fixed an issue occurring on Ruins of Ark Polaris allowing Steel Eel enemies to descend from heights they should not be able to.
  • Other Changes
    • Fixed an issue occurring when rolling into the targets on the test firing range with a Baller, where the target failed to react when hit, despite taking damage.



  1. I wish you could use one Nintendo switch one Splatoon game and play two player against each other or the computer.

  2. I’m ready for Splatoon 3 but the real question will it be $59.99 or $400?
    For some dumb reason Nintendo wants us to pay hundreds per sequal yet makes their consoles weak compared to the competition. So if they dont care about power they why are they forcing people to pay $ play a sequel? Hell we may have to pay addition $400 to play next Metroid. I already know in about 7 years they’ll make two versions one for the Switch and the other Metroid for the next gen console instead of making the game immediately even Wii U could had had some Metroid Sequels.

    If they worked on Mario Kart immediately after Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. SWITCH would had been on Mario Kart 9. But they dont make games immediately anymore

  3. What happened to Watch Dogs 2? Why do Playstation, Xbox and Nintend fans have to pay at least $400 for the next Watch Dogs? Why couldn’t they just work on it immediately after they were released in the early lives of Wii U, PS4 and Xbox 1? Video game developers are so lazy these days. They make a game and rely on that one game to bring them as much revenue as possible. Then after it sells are trash they start making the Sequel. I guess that’s why producers of Grand Thift Auto hasn’t worked on GTA6 yet when the game from Xbox 360 and PS3 are on Ps4 and Xbox1 now. If you want to see GTA6 stop putting GTA5 in top 10 best sellers so they can get to work.
