Today is a two-for-one deal on updates!

The first update is a b-ball revelation. The Goby Arena stage definitively proves that Inklings play basketball–something that researchers have often argued about. The arena has all the comforts of a modern stadium: a full-size locker room, polished wooden court, concession stands, jumbotron, VIP seating, and swag shop.

Just like in normal basketball, controlling the space around the two hoops will be key. What's the phrase again? "Protect the rim," is it?

Also available today are the Dark Tetra Dualies. It's an intimidating name to be sure, but this four-nozzle wonder also lets you execute up to four dodge rolls in a row! What technique! Rounding out the kit is the Autobomb sub weapon (to sniff out sneaky enemies) and the Splashdown special (to launch an attack from above). In other words, this is a kit meant for players who like to surprise their enemies.

Some topics have been debated for centuries untold by really smart people. Like, really smart people. And now, a question of the ages will be argued once again in Splatfest form: which came first…the chicken or the egg?

Yes, please think this over. Do you think chicken is a given? Or do you believe your side is eggcellent?

The debate will finally be settled in a Splatfest taking place from 3/9 (Fri) 8:00 p.m. PT – 3/10 (Sat) 8:00 p.m. PT

Also, please note that the results of this Splatfest will be combined with the results from players in Europe too! Please check the game on Sunday morning for the final tally. After all, we wouldn't want to count our chickens before they hatch.

Pearl is the pink and punky MC, and one half of the popular group 'Off the Hook'! With her friend Marina, she co-hosts the Splatoon 2 Splatfest events.

Just in! Details on the Shifty Station layout for this weekend's Splatfest. Containment chambers will drop down after a certain time and seclude part of the stage. It appears you cannot ink the secluded area from the outside, leading us to believe that whichever team gets access to the containment areas as they close down will gain the edge in turf coverage.

Breaking News from the latest Nintendo Direct! The first paid DLC is coming to Splatoon 2 this summer. Players will take on the role of an Octoling for the very first time in this large-scale downloadable content! This full-on single-player adventure spans 80 missions starring Agent 8, a new character who awakens without her memories on a dark subway platform. Navigate this mysterious underground test facility in a desperate battle to reach the surface of Inkopolis. Escape from these twisted depths, and it seems you'll finally be able to join multiplayer matches as an Octoling! How is this possible!? Does this mean we now need an Octopus Research branch too?

In addition to paid DLC, the Nintendo Direct presentation also included details on a major free update (Version 3.0) coming late April that will bring 100+ new pieces of gear, more stages rolling out throughout spring (Piranha Pit, Camp Triggerfish and Wahoo World) and a new rank (Rank X). Rank X appears to be an extreme rank, even higher than S+.

Last month we shared news that 'Off the Hook' amiibo figures will launch in stores exclusively as part of a 2-pack later this year. Today, we can confirm that the Pearl & Marina amiibo 2-Pack will make its debut on July 13.

It appears that a new weapon will be making a sploosh at Ammo Knights tonight prior to Splatfest. The Neo Sploosh-o-matic has the same close-combat functionality as the Sploosh-o-matic, but with a neat, custom look. Some may even say that it has a neo look, ha! A good kit for strategists, this kit also comes with the Squid Beakon sub weapon to help your teammates Super Jump in, and Tenta Missiles to lay down covering fire.

We just received a detailed report from our HQ filled with details about the upcoming X Rank feature! See below for the full details!

X Rank
X Rank is an extremely challenging Ranked Battle experience targeting the best of the best players. Players who are S+10 and above in the current ranking system will be re-registered as X Rank. For reference, below is a breakdown of players across each rank (as of 2/20/2018):

※Calculated based on players that played Ranked Battle within the last week

※Because we rounded up from the hundredths decimal, the total may not be 100.0% exactly

Once Ver.3.0.0 is live, players who are already S+10 or higher will be displayed as X Rank. After Ver.3.0.0 goes live, players who rank up from S+9 will rank up to X Rank.

About X Power and Ranking
Players who have ranked up to X Rank will battle for X Power rather than the Rank Meter. Players with similar X Power levels will be matched together even within the same rank of X Rank. Once a month, for each of the 4 different Ranked Battle modes, 500 players with the highest X Power will be announced on SplatNet 2.

Also on SplatNet 2, for each weapon, we will announce one player that had the highest X Power compared to other users of that weapon. This way, players can see others that use the same weapons they do.

Along with the monthly ranking announcement, X Power will reset to "Calculating" status. During the time of the reset, players whose X Power ended up lower than a set threshold will rank down to S+9. However, if X Power drops far enough, players may rank down to S+9 on the spot rather than at the time of the reset.

Changes Related to X Power Reset
Along with the monthly X Power reset, we anticipate the following changes:

Change in Weapon and Stage Additions

Up until now, new weapons have been added approximately once a week, but moving forward, it is more likely that a batch of several weapons will be added once a month.

Furthermore, stage additions are more likely to debut once a month at the time of the monthly reset.

Ranked Battle Stage Limitation

Currently, over 20 stages are rotated across 4 different battle types in Ranked Battle mode. This allows players to enjoy playing a variety of stages, but it takes an extremely long time before a specific battle type and stage combination reoccurs. This may keep players from mastering their strategy and achieving even more high-level play.

After Ver.3.0.0, the Ranked Battle stage roster will be limited to 8 per battle type. Then, at the monthly X Power reset, the stage selection will refresh to a different set of 8.

Turf War and League Battle will retain all stages in rotation.

Timeline for Changes
These changes will come into effect via Ver.3.0.0 scheduled for late April, 2018.

The first X Power reset is scheduled for May 31st.

After that, Resets will regularly occur on the final day of every month.

Summary
We've revised the system in hopes of encouraging players of all ranks to enjoy improving their play, as opposed to simply focusing on ranking up.

This change will only affect Ranked Battle, but Splatoon 2 is comprised of several additional modes including Turf War, Splatfest, and Salmon Run. We will continue to update and improve Splatoon 2 and we appreciate your continued support.

Happy OctoPi Day! We're celebrating with the help of this Octarian who's posing as if he were an ancient human dish known as Takoyaki! As far as we can tell, these primitive people used to eat balls of boiled octopus, fascinating!

Our research appears to be on the nose this time: the H-3 Nozzlenose D to be precise – available tonight! This version of the H-3 Nozzlenose has the same stats, but new flair. This is very handy when showing it off to your friends…not that scientists such as myself value such things…harrumph. Rounding out the kit are Suction Bombs (which we hear really "suck" for your opponent) and Ink Armor to help the fortitude of your fellow squid-mates.

The story of Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion unfolds in a huge test facility deep underground. Who made this facility and for what purpose is veiled in mystery. The area is completely isolated from the outside world, as if time stopped long ago. Objects from the old world drift here and there, like relics of a bygone past.

The protagonist in Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion is No. 10,008, aka Agent 8. Agent 8 has lost its memory—it doesn't remember who it is or how it ended up underground. While it seems that most Octarians are pure evil, it appears this one has had its very nature changed somehow by having heard the Squid Sisters' Calamari Inkantation. It's up to you to help this lost Octoling escape from this mysterious subterranean world.

Are Pearl, a.k.a. MC.Princess, and Marina, a.k.a DJ_Hyperfresh, aiding the Octolings? Rumor has it they'll help Agent 8 escape from the underground via wireless connection from above. We've also heard that the untold story of how 'Off the Hook' was formed may also be revealed…

Agent 8 will face over 80 tough tests on the journey out of the underground. With a little help from 'Off the Hook' though, Agent 8 will be able to skip the tests that are just too difficult. And don't worry, even if you skip some tests you'll still be able to play as an Octoling once you escape the underground.

Octolings in Inkopolis Plaza? This is highly irregular! It looks like they'll be joining in on Regular and Ranked Battles, and they'll have the same stats and abilities as an Inkling. Because of their similar sizes, they'll also be able to wear the same gear as well.

Once you've helped Agent 8 reach the surface and completed the Octo Expansion, you'll unlock the ability to play as one of these tentacled terrors.

This is Cap'n Cuttlefish, leader of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, which secretly protects the world of Inklings from Octarian forces. He looks very old, but won fame as a brave fighter. Along with his apprentice Agent 3, he's been out on patrol. Unfortunately, it looks like he somehow strayed into this underground world and lost track of Agent 3 as well.

In order to move around the underground world, a subway system called Deepsea Metro is essential. The ecosystem of the underground seems to have developed uniquely within its closed environment. Therefore, passengers you can see in the subway look quite different from residents above ground. And while they look a bit grim, it seems they're not bad guys.

This is one of the stations where Deepsea Metro stops. Each station is directly connected to a respective test facility in which various tests await Agent 8. Each station will offer a unique test; for example, there appears to be a test in which you must clear an area only using special weapons.

Once you meet a certain condition after the V.3.0 update, Callie of the Squid Sisters will appear in Tentakeel Outpost in Octo Canyon. Given how famous the Squid Sisters are in the Inkling world, this must be a good place to avoid being mobbed by fans. Callie will also offer recent news about Agent 4.

Check out Chirpy Chips' new song, Blitz It! The song has a cool yet mature ambience, which is a markedly different approach than they've taken in the past. The intro starts with a heavy guitar sound, the vocals build up the tension, and at the climax their iconic 8-bit sound explodes!

It's time to put the "ink" in "Zink" tonight! The Zink Mini Splatling has the same stats as the Mini Splatling but comes with a unique look. This kit also contains Curling Bombs (which allows you to quickly reach the front lines) and the Ink Storm special (which helps with your team's mobility). With this delightful combination, it's a good kit for those more mobile-minded Splatling users.

Starting tomorrow, Ammo Knights will be stocked with the Sorella Brella. This polka-dotted wonder has the same stats as the Splat Brella, but just look at that style! Nothing spotty about it…besides the spots. Rounding out the kit are Autobombs to find lurking opponents, and the Splat-Bomb Launcher to help push the front lines forward. This kit is recommended for aggressive players who want to support their team.

Research indicates that a fan-favorite stage will re-open for battles tomorrow! Piranha Pit, located in a mysterious quarry, is famous for its industrial style and tricky conveyor belts. It's hard to convey just how important the conveyor belts are, so perhaps you should experience it for yourself. Wapow!

Introducing a Spring Sports Splatfest! This theme asks you to keep your eye on the ball…a sports ball. Yes, sports fans, which one do you like better: baseball or soccer? Do you hunger for home runs or pine for penalty kicks? Do you cover your bases or go for a hat trick? Do you like winning a trophy or winning a…ok, I guess both sports have trophies.

The Splatfest will take place from 4/6 (Fri) 9:00 p.m. PT – 4/7 (Sat) 9:00 p.m. PT
