While Splatoon 2 players prepare for this weekend’s Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed Splatfest, Nintendo has released a new video focused on the upcoming Octo Expansion. In this video, Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami delves into the inspiration of this upcoming expansion while also revealing more about it.
Nogami-san begins the video by explaining how they wanted the Octo Expansion to feel different from the single-player campaign, Salmon Run, and the multiplayer from the beginning. In order to do this, they have shrouded the expansion’s story in mystery so players can discover what’s going on alongside its main character.
He then goes on to explain X-Rank, and reveals that the expansion will include over 80 stages. According to Nogami-san, it will also add news weapons and reveal more about the backstories of both Pearl and Marina. If you want to see our thoughts on the base game, you can check out our review.
