Spire of Order

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Still from the September 2023 Nintendo Direct revealing the Spire's name

The Spire of Order[1] is the location the Side Order expansion for Splatoon 3 takes place in. The Spire of Order replaces Deca Tower in the Order Sector.

Initially, Agent 8 must ascend the spire's ten floors to rescue Marina. After this, the height of the Spire of Order is increased to thirty floors, which must be climbed to defeat Order at the top.

Description

The Spire of Order appears as a blanched-out, dilapidated version of Deca Tower, with a significant amount of metal piping added to its exterior. Blank, forward-facing panels replace the angled billboards, screens, and signage from Deca Tower. Its layout changes each time Agent 8 enters.[2]

Foyer

Main article: Foyer

The foyer is the ground level of the Spire of Order. Its layout changes after clearing the first climb. It functions as a test range within Side Order, allowing the player to test different weapons that come with different Palettes before starting a climb.

Elevator

Main article: Elevator

The elevator is the method of transportation used to climb the Spire of Order. It can be ridden from the foyer. It can only go up one floor at a time except during a run with Eight's Palette, where it is possible to use Membux to skip a non-boss floor.

Floors

Main article: Floor

During a climb, the floors are randomly generated.

Control Room

Main article: Control Room

The Control Room is the last and highest floor the player can reach during a climb. It is on 10F during the first climb, or 30F during subsequent climbs.

Quotes

The SRL Zoning Committee doesn't recall approving a permit for the Spire of Order, the strange tower looming over Side Order. The elevator only takes you up one floor at a time? And the floors change every time you get there?! Who reviewed these blueprints?

Wave 2 of the #Splatoon3: Expansion Pass, Side Order, is set in the Spire of Order. Located in what looks like Inkopolis Square (minus the colour) this tower seemingly defies the laws of nature – each time you enter, the layout changes!
