Since they're announcing it via video, maybe it might be something a little more significant?

Maybe they'll tune up the matchmaking a bit. Hopefully some cool stuff.

@Dev Well, there is potential for a new "hair" style at least if you go by the picture from the tweet at least. We'll see though.

Wow! Looks like they're adding a substantial amount of content on Friday - I'm seeing a new game mode,
new stages, new hair-styles, a photo mode, new weapons - and that's just on first glance! ..check out the teaser below!

The Level cap is being raised to 99, you can now swap gear without having to leave the lobby and a new Salmon Run Map also.

@NaviAndMii I literally "called" the hair right before this posted! Haha! I was in the process of posting the video. Glad a look before I did though.

2 new stages and 2 returning ones is what it looked like. 2 new weapons plus the hydra (finally!). New hair styles and a cool new game mode inspired by collecting and randomly American football.

Edit:
So, by watching the new mode you collecting golden oysters/clams and once you hit a certain number it turns into an American football that you can actually pass to teammates, using the sub throw button I assume, and then you throw it into a case that I assume is at the opponents sides, but I'll check again to see if it is on your own side. Man am I digging the new song!

Actually the Level system has a new layer on it. If you reach 99, you can ask Judd to reset it to *1 and go back to *99. I wonder how far it goes now.

@-Green- Niiiice! ..just picking my jaw up off the floor as I type this - what a pleasant surprise that was!

@NapalmPsalm Yeah, I saw - you some kind of psychic squid or something? Haha! ..and yeah, the new game mode looks suitably bizarre (footballs?!) - looking forward to giving it a go! Should be fun by the looks of things!


EDIT: Ahhh, so the NL guys just provided a handy little break down on the front page - he's what to expect in a bit more detail (and when to expect it):

Update on 24th November

  • MakoMart stage (enters rotation on Saturday)
  • A new Salmon Run stage, Salmonid Smokeyard (available from Friday)
  • 140 extra pieces of gear
  • New music from "the punk-flavoured Bottom Feeders (pictured) and classically-trained avant-garde-style Ink Theory"
  • New hair styles
  • Scan Splatoon amiibo to take in-game pictures
  • Max level raised to 99
  • Swap gear between battles within the online lobbies

Second update in mid-December

  • Clam Blitz battle mode - "Competing Inklings are tasked with collecting clams scattered around the stage. After one is picked up, the clam weirdly follows you. Your objective is to throw the clam into the basket near your opponent’s base. The first team to score 100 points wins! The baskets are protected by a barrier, which must be destroyed first. After collecting 10 clams, you’ll earn a Power Clam. These super-powered clams are the key to breaking the barrier, so strategy will definitely be involved in deciding which clams are used to destroy the barrier and which are used to earn points. Not to mention the extra-satisfying opportunity to steal your opponents’ clams by splatting them."
  • New stage - Shellendorf Institute
  • Two more returning stages - Walleye Warehouse and Arowana Mall

...not sure I like that the photo mode is locked behind an amiibo too much (although, after 190+ hours, I should probably consider adding an Inkling to my collection!) - but the rest more than softens that blow! ..HUGE amount of TOTALLY FRESH content! Amazing news!

Elementary my dear @NaviAndMii. The inkling clearly had hair products it the cart!

Edit:
This biggest thing I think is the swapping gear in the lobby; however, it doesn't help too much in my opinion if I can't change my weapon too since that is kinda how I choose which gear I use.

@NaviAndMii The amiibo photo mode is already a thing; this is just an update adding more options to it.

@NapalmPsalm I would assume that "gear" also includes weapons. Speaking of this, the Nintendo UK page says:

Players who want to change gear between battles in Regular Battle, Ranked Battle and Splatfest Battle (Solo) won’t have to exit to the lobby anymore! After downloading the update, gear can be swapped out without leaving the match room, making it quicker to get back to splatting. For Regular Battle, this also means you can play the next battle with the same players.

Now, normally you do stay with the same players in Ranked, right? So it sounds like changing gear in that mode will move you to another room. No counterpicking allowed, kids.

Available for online play around 7-10PM UK time most weekdays, whenever on weekends.

@Zyrac Technically you would consider you weapon gear, but anytime I have seen anything "official" for this game referring to gear it has always meant clothes. I'll be ecstatic if I'm wrong, but I'm assuming the opposite so I can be pleasantly surprised instead of disappointed.

Yeah, that UK page make it sounds that way, and I feel helps your case with weapons being gear. Still not getting my hopes up. Nope nope nope. I'll be in the back woods with crappy internet during this update. So once you all find out if it includes weapons or not please post here. I gotta know!

Now I really wish there was three stage rotation. Where’s the N-Zap ‘89 too?

It’s good That they are updating for free. I personally only play this from time to time if I have nothing else to play or need a break. I won’t give them my money for the inevitable splatoon 3. Personally I don’t like the lack of any type of multiplayer, the hand holding in regards that I can’t pick the layout I want, and the fact that I have to sit through the squids talking and showing stages ever time I turn on the game.

@Qwertyninty Ummm, lack of multiplayer? I assume you mean the lack of local multiplayer on one console which I understand. Otherwise there is local play across multiple consoles and obviously online multiplayer.

I going to go ahead and say the predetermined load-outs isn't the game doing hand holding, but is actually for balancing reasons. I can see some pretty broken load-outs being created if they did allow you to make your own. I shudder at the thought of the luna blaster (or any blaster really) getting the combination of burst bombs and ink storm at the same time. That would be killer in ranked. Though it would be fun to see what the meta would gravitate to.

Meh, the off the hook portion isn't bad since it only plays when you turn on the game or when salmon run starts/ends. I can only see this being a problem if you keep turning the game off an on multiple times in a day, which doesn't make sense to me personally. If I play more the one game in a day I'm not bouncing around between the two, but that is my personal playing habits.
