The first update drops on Thursday, November 23 and will begin rolling out four new battle stages and other content. "This new content significantly expands the game and provides a great value for players, regardless of whether they purchased it on launch day or have it on their holiday gift lists". The first free update hits on November 23 and adds a new stage for Salmon Run, new gear and new hairstyles for Inklings, as well as many other features, with additional new battle stages rolling out beginning November 24. Finally, Shellendorf Institute is a brand new map that screams Museum of Natural History; there's a dinosaur skeleton hanging from the ceiling and everything! New battle music and hairstyles will also be available. Arowana Mall is a long, narrow stage designed like a shopping mall, while Walleye Warehouse is a close-quarters stage with lots of crates and conveyor belts. These and even more features are on the way!

New Gear: Approximately 140 pieces of gear are being added. Called Clam Blitz, the new mode is similar to Salmon Run but with the freedom to choose your weapon and lack of angry fish enemies. These include shoes, headgear and clothes, like a motocross mask, and additional winter clothing (perfect for the cold weather!), as well as returning items from the original Splatoon game. Splatoon 2 will also take a leaf out of Call of Duty's book, allowing players to "prestige" of sorts by talking to Judd when they reach level 99.

Friday's update will also raise the level cap from 50 to 99, as well as giving players who hit the new level cap an option to reset to level one (with a star next to it) and start leveling all over again. This mode involves picking up clams around the stage and trying to throw them into an opponents basket. The first team to score 100 points wins!

Splatoon 2 was originally released on July 21, 2017, and is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Don't worry if this seems to simple, baskets will be protected by barriers that need to be destroyed as well as the opportunity to splat your opponents and claim their clams as your own.
