In a recent interview with GameInformer, Nintendo revealed that the distribution of free content for Splatoon would end in January. In other words, we only have a few weeks left with new weapons and maps. After that, Splatfests and Software updates will continue, but nothing new will be added to the game.
Today, Nintendo announced that a brand new map would be added in a few hours: Piranha Pit. It was actually revealed a couple of days ago in a new trailer for the game, but as usual, Nintendo didn’t tell when it would be added to the game. This map is located in a mine, and there’s conveyor belts everywhere: you need to take those into account when coming up with a strategy. Will your team go right or left? Also, you can see huge machinery in the background.
Here’s some pictures for the Piranha Pit map:
Due to the New Year holidays in Japan, this new map for Splatoon will be added on Tuesday instead of Wednesday or Saturday. The time, however, remains the same:
- Europe: 3AM
- UK: 2AM
- North America (ET): 9PM (today)
- North America (PT): 6PM (today)
- Japan: 11AM
This is most definitely the last content update for Splatoon in 2016. Also, don’t forget the 9th Splatfest for Europe, which takes place this week-end!
