Version 3.0.0 is an update to Splatoon 2 that is set to be released on April 25, 2018 at 01:00 UTC. The update was first previewed during the Nintendo Direct on March 8, 2018.[1]

Octo Canyon

  • After meeting certain conditions, players can talk to Callie in Octo Canyon. Once unlocked, she will appear at Tentakeel Outpost.

Progression

Rank X promo image

Rank X will be added, replacing ranks S+10 through S+50. Players already ranked in S+10 through S+50 will be automatically placed in Rank X. Rank X discards the rank meter in favor of X Power, a rating similar to Splatfest Power. Matchmaking is done based on X Power, so players will be fighting others with similar X Power rather than just anyone else who shares the rank. Monthly ranking lists will be published on SplatNet 2, featuring the players with the highest X Power. There will be a list for each of the four ranked modes that contains the top 500 players for the mode. Another list will have the top player of each weapon. New lists will be made available on the final day of every month.[2]

At the time of the monthly ranking announcements on SplatNet, X Power will reset to "Calculating" status in-game. The calculation period, lasting 10 matches, determines if the player is eligible to remain in X Rank. It is also possible to drop out of X Rank outside of calculation periods, if the player's X Power drops low enough.

Music

The chiptune band Chirpy Chips has two new tracks.[3] The new tracks are Blitz It[4] and Wave Prism[5]. Blitz It was featured in the trailer for version 3.0.0.

Splatfest

  • When Splatfest results are revealed, team voting percentages and win percentages will now display to the hundredths digit after the decimal point.
  • When playing multiple solo Splatfest matches with few allies, your Splatfest Power will not decrease when losing. Now, Splatfest Power will not decrease when in this situation for an even shorter duration.

Regular Battle

  • When playing multiple matches with few allies your Vibe Meter will not change when you lose.

Ranked Battle

Following the update, the Ranked Battle stage roster will be limited to 8 possible stages per battle type, with the stages being refreshed with different sets upon the X Power reset time. League Battles and Turf War will be unaffected by this change.

Gear

Over 100 new pieces of gear will be added. A preview for some of the gear follows.

Note: with the exception of returning gear from Splatoon, the names given are loose translations, based on the names of existing gear.
