Side Order, Next Wave of Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass, Releases in Spring 2024

Splatoon 3 entered the Switch’s library with Splash last year, but Nintendo hasn’t yet finished supporting the Squid-based shooter. Today, we got a new look at wave 2 of the game’s expansion pack titled Side Order. You can watch the trailer below.

The trailer takes place at the base of the Spire of Order, a new location that is mostly colorless. We see the return of Agent 8, the protagonist of Splatoon 2’s Octo expansion, interacting with a new character named Acht (which is German for “eight”), who claims to “return” with one of the hosts, Marina. Splatoon 2’s. Meanwhile, Pearl, her co-host, seems to be embodying a robot with Agent 8 around the world.

Acht gives agents 8 colored chips that modify their abilities, increasing certain damage types or increasing run speed. After the trailer, Takahashi mentioned that the DLC is designed to be played “again and again”, possibly suggesting that the game will have Rogue-like elements. You can check it out for yourself when Side Order hits the eShop in Spring 2024.
