While Splatoon 2 is obviously a great and fun multiplayer game, for those who are wishing for a bit more single-player content, you might be interested to learn that during the Nintendo Direct presentation, the company announced Splatoon 2’s first paid DLC called “Octo” which will be introducing new single-player content.

This is an interesting approach because like we said, Splatoon 2 is a great multiplayer game so we would have expected Nintendo to launch something more multiplayer related. However we suppose single-player content is fine too and will be introducing a new character called “Octo”. The DLC is priced at $19.99 and is currently available for pre-order where it will be released this coming summer.


For those wondering about the multiplayer aspect of the game or content that isn’t linked to a paid DLC, not to worry as Nintendo also announced a major update that will be arriving for the game. This will bump the game up to version 3.0 and will introduced over 100 new pieces of gear, more stages, and a new rank that players can look forward to. If you have a few minutes to spare, you can check out the video above for the trailer for the upcoming DLC as well as some of the other content that Nintendo has planned for the game.
