Today during their September 2023 Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo reminded us that yes, Splatoon 3 was getting a proper story DLC, and not just another nearly 1:1 hub to wander around in.
Through a fairly detailed gameplay video, we got a look at the incredibly arcadey Side Order DLC (complete with damage numbers!), set at the “Spire of Order,” which is basically an old-school challenge tower. It’s meant to be played “over and over again,” and will be a strictly single player affair.
Splatoon 3‘s Side Order DLC will be out in the Spring (!) of 2024.
Here’s a gallery of everything shown off during the Direct.
