Splatoon 3 continues to get a lot of support from Nintendo, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. There is going to be more DLC coming soon that is part of the Expansion Pass, and the game is getting updated very regularly with new updates that adds more things, re-balances the game and fixes bugs.
Well, the latest example of this has occurred tonight. Nintendo has released a brand new update for Splatoon 3, bringing the game to version 5.2.0. There isn’t any new content in this update, but there is some added support for some new amiibo. You can see the patch notes in full down below.
Changes to amiibo
- Added support for the Shiver, Frye, and Big Man amiibo.
Season and Catalog Changes
- The number of Catalog Points earned during the Closeout Bonus period has increased from 1.2x to 1.5x. The Closeout Bonus period runs from one week before the end of the season until the end of the season.
Changes to Notifications
