Windmill House on the Pearlie
|Introduced||13 October 2017 (Vampire vs. Werewolf)|
Windmill House on the Pearlie is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2. It was the fourth variation of Shifty Station, and first appeared in the Vampire vs. Werewolf, Dexterity vs. Endurance, and Warm Breakfast vs. Cold Breakfast Splatfests. It returned in My Melody vs. Pompompurin and Chaos vs. Order. As of version 5.0.0, it is exclusively available in Private Battles. It features four rotating walls placed around the stage.
Players spawn on either end of the stage, on raised platforms that lead down to a central area. Each side has a rotating platform where the walls can be covered to climb on it and not fall to the abyss. At the center, there is a big wall and two uncoverable rotating platforms, and only can be crossed to the other side by going through the rotating platforms. This original version of the map is no longer available for play.
When this stage was reused during the Sanrio Splatfest tournament, the central revolving doors were skewed with the left one (per player point of view) moved closer to the spawn. The middle has also been opened up, allowing free movement from one side to the other. The right side of the spawn point has also been expanded.

Turf War (old version)
- Its file name is "Deli00" and its codename is "Windmill", likely referring to the way the four rotating platforms resemble windmills.
- The revision of this stage has the file name "Deli00_02".
- Its file name implies that it may have been the first Shifty Station completed, even though it was introduced after Wayslide Cool, The Secret of S.P.L.A.T., and Goosponge.
- This stage was one of five returning stages to lack the ambience that other Shifty Stations had in Recon mode during Chaos vs. Order. It did not lack the ambience when it first returned in the My Melody vs. Pompompurin Splatfest.
Windmill House on the Pearlie is named after Little House on the Prairie, a novel by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Additionally, it references the four rotating platforms, or "windmills," as well as Marina's nickname for Pearl, "Pearlie".
