Bridge to Tentaswitchia is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2. It was the 21st variation of Shifty Station and first appeared in the Hare vs. Tortoise Splatfest. It returned in the Chaos vs. Order Splatfest. As of Version 5.0.0, it is exclusively available in Private Battles. It is a laterally symmetrical stage with an Ink Switch in the middle. The Ink Switch moves a large strip of turf, which eventually moves behind a glass wall, becoming uninkable.

Layout

Bridge to Tentaswitchia contains an Ink Switch in the center of the map controlling a strip of fourteen moving platforms. These platforms, partially separated by a glass wall in front of the switch at the start of a match, serve as the surface for the center of the map. Team Alpha always spawns on the right, while Team Bravo always spawns on the left. This is randomly decided in same-team matches. When the switch is in use, the platforms move slowly from one end of the stage to the other. Players must ink the surface of the platforms before they slide under the other glass wall behind the switch, putting the turf out of reach for the remainder of the match. The switch is covered with a glass barrier from all sides, except for the front. The height of the switch is also enough that the S2 Weapon Special Tenta Missiles.png Tenta Missiles are less likely to activate it. When the last surface is fully on the other side of the first glass wall, sliding doors of the glass barrier conceal the front of the switch. The S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray and S2 Weapon Special Booyah Bomb.png Booyah Bomb can penetrate this cage, but hitting the Ink Switch will do nothing once the platforms have moved to the end.

Trivia

  • The file name for this stage is "Deli21" and the codename is "Painting", possibly due to how the large strip of turf acts as a canvas for both teams to "paint" on.
    • Prior to Version 4.4.0, this layout was a test map that was modified from the data for Kelp Dome.
  • Due to its moving strip of turf, this has the largest inkable area out of any Shifty Station in the game, and is the fourth-largest stage overall.

Etymology

Bridge to Tentaswitchia is named after Bridge to Terabithia, a novel by Katherine Paterson. Additionally, it references the Ink Switch in the middle of the stage, and the "bridge" that it moves.
