Nintendo has always been reliable when it comes to regularly adding new content to Splatoon 2, but it appears as though the game is done with new stages. The 4.1.0 update for the shooter will come with what Nintendo calls the game’s “last new stage,” along with a variety of new weapons.
The publisher has been releasing new information about the new update throughout the week, tweeting about the new stage on Wednesday. Yesterday, the Nintendo Versus account revealed a fun new item called the Booyah Bomb.
Remember how you can hit the D-pad to yell “Booyah” to your teammates? This silly feature will have a function here, with your rallying cries (and those of your teammates) charging up the weapon. And as spotted from the initial version 4.0 trailer, a new sub-weapon called the Fizzy Bomb will be added; like a can of soda, this grenade can be shaken up to increase its power.
Splatoon 2 recently wrapped its first Splatfest post-version 4.0, a battle between Retro vs. Modern, with the latter winning. Expect the 4.1 update to arrive in early October.
This is Skipper Pavilion. It’ll be the last new stage to be added to #Splatoon2 when it arrives in October.

A new Special Weapon called the Booyah Bomb is coming to #Splatoon2. Once activated, charge it up faster by signaling “Booyah!” Teammates can also get a small bonus to their special meter with “Booyah!” rally cries of their own! Unleash it once it’s charged for a big inksplosion! pic.twitter.com/3aQRJYcwzk
