Keeping it fresh on February 28.

Following last week’s announcement of Inkopolis coming to Splatoon 3, as part of Wave 1 for the game’s Expansion Pass, an official release date has been given. Previously slated for Spring 2023, Wave 1 becomes available on February 28, 2023. For those who wish to purchase it sooner instead of waiting for release day, the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass is available for pre-order now.

In other DLC news this month, Fire Emblem Engage recieved Wave 2 of its own Expansion Pass last week, whereas Wave 3 for Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s Expansion Pass becomes available later today.

About the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass:

Take a deeper dive into the expansive world and colorful characters of the Splatoon™ series. Make Inkopolis from the first Splatoon game your stomping (err…splatting?) grounds with the first wave of the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass paid DLC*! Another major metropolis of the Splatoon universe, Inkopolis has changed a bit in the past several years with some new shopkeepers. Ready to jam? Then come to Inkopolis to see some fresh Squid Sisters performances during Splatfests**. 

A new single-player campaign called Side Order super jumps to the Splatoon 3 game in the second wave of this DLC. See what has become of Inkopolis Square, the central area featured in the Splatoon 2 game!
