Have you recovered yet? In case you missed it (and how could you?), yesterday's Nintendo Direct finally lifted the lid on Side Order, the exciting single-player DLC mode from Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass! Now with a fresh new release window of Spring 2024, we've been re-introduced to Agent 8, Pearl, and Inkopolis Square, and discovered mysterious new enemies in the Spire of Order with seemingly roguelike gameplay elements. We're still breaking down all the hidden details and can't wait to find out more!

Another quarter, another season, and this one is not to be mist! Drizzle Season 2023 has just been announced and brings with it a plethora of new features on 1 September 2023, including the new Dread Wringer and Heavy Edit Splatling weapon types and several new and returning variants, the new Crableg Capital and Shipshape Cargo Co. stages with the return of Salmonid Smokeyard, new music from H2Whoa, gear adjustments, Tableturf Battle cards, new Challenges... we could go on and on.

Of course, all this lands just in time for the first anniversary of Splatoon 3 on 9 September 2023, and we're ready to celebrate! A special birthday Splatfest kicks off on the day itself, and it's a battle of the idols: Shiver vs. Frye vs. Big Man! As if all that wasn't enough, we're also getting a Big Run on 2 September 2023 and Deep Cut amiibo on 17 November 2023 - phew!

We'll likely continue to get fresh updates on all these events and updates in the weeks to come!
