Splatoon’s August Content Update Dated & Detailed

Splatoon’s much anticipated “August Update” has finally been dated by Nintendo Japan, and it’s under two weeks away – with the company’s twitter page confirming the content will roll out next Thursday, August 6th.

The translated tweet, alongside a helpful bit of PR from Nintendo tells us the free update will include many things fans of the game have been asking for since its launch – increased level caps (Level 50, Rank S+), new gear, “tag match” and private lobbies.

Still out to sea, however, is the addition of in-game party chat, with Nintendo, perhaps sensibly, choosing to protect Splatoon’s younger player-base from the vocal community you’ll find alongside other console shooters, such as COD.

Kids, Squids, COD. I can’t keep up.

The Splatoon twitter account has also posted today to announce that for a couple of days prior to this content drop the Urchin Underpass map will disappear from rotation for “maintenance”. After this period (3-5 Aug) the stage will return, although presumably with a slight redesign.
