Sp apparently Arowana Mall an additional pathway on the left? That's awesome!

@Jaybee23 That might be because you were matched with other newcomers? Or what level did those players have? Anyway, welcome to Splatoon!

With Arowana Mall released today, we‘ve officially reached the amount of stages in Splatoon 1, which is 16 (not counting Shifty Station) This has brought up the question within me: We know we‘ll get at least a year‘s worth of update content, like our weekly weapons and monthly stages. With Arowana being a returning stage and the February stage, this leaves the April and June stages as returning ones (since it‘s always been new, old, new, old, new ...).
So, which ones would I like to return the most? My heart screams 'Saltspray' and 'Triggerfrish'. But my mind wants Triggerfrish and a stage post-Hammerhead (these being d‘Alfonsino, Mahi-Mahi, Piranha and Ancho-V). The reason for this is that I fell out of the original a bit after Hammerhead was released. I know, I could return to S1 right now and check them out and one day I will (who knows, maybe this weekend, still recovering from my cold so I can‘t play for too long anyway). But even without my hatred for the WiiU, I‘d never return to S1 long-term. So that‘s why I‘d like one of these four to return.

So which two returning stages would you like to see the most?

Edit: Also note that we‘ve got two stages in a month before (Snapper and Blackbelly in October) so who knows what‘ll happen, maybe we get more than the 21 stages (again, excluding Shifty) by the end of July?

Do you think they'll port over every stage from the first game eventually? I'd like to think they will do by the time the Wii U's servers inevitably shut down, otherwise some of S1's stages will be lost forever. The 10 stages that are exclusive to the first game are:
Urchin Underpass
Saltspray Rig
Bluefin Depot
Camp Triggerfish
Flounder Heights
Hammerhead Bridge
Museum D'Alfonsino
Mahi-Mahi Resort
Piranha Pit
Ancho-V Games

Urchin Underpass and Museum D'Alfonsino are maybe a bit too similar to The Reef and Inkblot Art Academy respectively, so they might not consider those to be worth porting? Then again Urchin Underpass is in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, so it's still relevant in that sense.

Currently Playing: Bomb Chicken (Switch), Siesta Fiesta (3DS), Fire Emblem (Wii U VC)

@Dogorilla It'd definitely be nice to see and play on them again eventually, though, this does sound more like a long-term thing and unlikely to happen in Splatoon 2 (no matter if they extend the content updates or not). Also leading members of Splatoon 2's dev team said not all of Splatoon 1's stages would return in Splatoon 2 in an interview I stumbled across whilst searching for something else ( http://www.perfectly-nintendo.com/splatoon-2-developers-perfo... ). Considering ... well, WiiU's entire being, I doubt its online services will survive up until Splatoon 3, though, I could be wrong, of course.

I don't think Museum d'Alfonsino is too similar to Inkblot Art Academy. Sure, the settings are similar but it's the layout of the map that matters in the game and they don't seem too much alike in that regard. Urchin Underpass does stand on its own as well, though, I'm not a fan personally.

@GoldenGamer88 Ah, I didn't know they'd said they wouldn't port all the stages. That's a shame but as you say they could bring them back for a potential third game.

I agree that those stages are different enough to warrant porting them to Splatoon 2, but the developers might not give them priority over other returning stages, as they probably wouldn't want to have too many aesthetically similar stages. I may be wrong of course.

Bring those back as reworked Salmon Run maps.

Keep that lore fresh.

Speaking of stages, I feel at least someone should have mentioned by now that the next SplatFest's Mystery Station will feature FRIKKIN CANNONS!

The new Europe Splatfest is about gherkins in burgers (disgusting/delicious).

As for returning stages, if we look at what's come so far and when they came on Wii U:

  • Moray Towers (July 2015)
  • Port Mackerel (June 2015)
  • Kelp Dome (June 2015)
  • Blackbelly Skatepark (Launch)
  • Walleye Warehouse (Launch)
  • Arowana Mall (Launch)

I think these will come to Splatoon 2 (no Bluefin Depot if only 3):

  • Urchin Underpass (Launch)
  • Saltspray Rig (Launch)
  • Bluefin Depot (June 2015)
  • Camp Triggerfish (July 2015)

Given that there has been a larger focus on the older Wii U stages.

Ah, finally a theme I can relate with! No gherkins whatsoever! They‘re disgusting. Putting them on is one of the steps to ruin a burger imo. The others are putting too many cut down onions in, like McDonald‘s likes to do. The third is to literally drown it in sauce, like BurgerKing likes to do. The latter‘s absolute disgusting! When the bread on top is already so soggy from all the sauce and as you get to the second half of the burger, the sauce has all been pushed back there by your bites and then you already see it almost dripping out of the burger, it‘s disgusting! I‘m a simple man when it comes to any sandwich. Give me cheese, put a few drops of ketchup and mustard between the sausage/meat and the cheese and on top a few sprinkles of onions because these are delicious in small doses. Close off with the bread and done!

Umm .... anyway, yeah, a friend of mine noticed that as well the other day, @Grumblevolcano, said he thought it‘d be nice to at least have the original five in there. Given the original ones are the first ones they‘ve created for the series at a time they didn‘t have as much experience, I think it makes sense they‘d wanna revisit them and change a few things. Though given Urchin already got a make-over in S1, we‘ll see if it returns or not.

I'd be very surprised if we see Saltspray returning. I suppose with some rejigging with ink lines and sponges it could fix some of the problems with the original, but nearly all the current stages allow a team to fan out and then come together fairly smoothly. Saltspray locks you down separate paths. I don't know, maybe that's not why, but it just feels... 'different' from the current crop. And not in a way I particularly like.

I felt Mahi Mahi had the opposite problem of feeling so spread out that there was often little feeling of 'pushing' through it, and team would often unsatisfyingly drift apart. Most of the old stages that have been released since launch have had relatively safe designs, which have been tinkered with to bring them up to date. It's the stages with certain gimmicks at their centre which have yet to make the cut, so I don't really expect a stage like Saltspray back.

Anyway, I really like what they've done with Arowana, both in terms of aesthetics and design.

Wait, what?! I'm curious how that will work out.

I think that's mainly because they want to introduce the original game's stages in the original order (more or less). At least I'm hoping they will bring back its newer stages after the older stages, because some of the newer ones were my absolute favourites!

I agree with Maxz, I don't think Saltspray Rig would be a good idea. Personally, I think the same applies to Bluefin Depot, it was just too unbalanced IMHO.

From the remaining 8 stages I definitely want these to return:

Flounder Heights
Mahi Mahi Resort
Camp Triggerfish

It would also be nice to get these two back as well since each of them had something unique that's not represented in Splatoon 2 yet:

Urchin Underpass
Hammerhead Bridge

The same applies to these but I guess I could live without them:

Piranha Pit
I liked Museum D'Alfonsino
Ancho-V Games

Of course it'd be great if they enhanced them just as they did so far with the returning old stages.

@shani Hi Shani, most of the players seemed to be experienced with some levels reaching 30s + (video will show some of the higher levels). But I'm playing a lot more now on ranked battle, and it's becoming more challenging, which I'm enjoying!

Thanks

Loving this game! Even wish it lasted longer than 3 mins online, doing the offline stuff too which is fun

Is there anyway to skip the annoying video at the start after you’ve pressed ZL+ZR - does my head in

Shane17

Maxz

@Shane17 Unfortunately not. It's perhaps the biggest legitimate criticism you could throw at the game; it takes so long to to trawl through dialogue before you can actually play it.

Once you start playing Ranked, the matches will go up to a maximum of 5 minutes, so it might feel a bit fuller.

Glad you're enjoying the game!

@Maxz that’s a shame, I find it such an annoyance just smashing A to try and get passed it!

Yeah it’s great finally won my first game just as I suck being on L2 currently! For someone like myself though I’m never top of the COD/BF games for killing, so a game like this where killing people or shooting them doesn’t matter as much as doing the objective i’ts brilliant!

@Shane17 @Maxz I agree, I wish the news would only pop up once you enter the lobby. Or they could add a checkbox [ ] display news in the user settings, but I guess they want you to see the news at some point.

Still, it's better than in Splatoon 1, where you had to watch the news every single time you booted the game.
If you leave Splatoon 2 open (and put your Switch in sleep mode), you don't have to watch the news again. Unless it's a new day (or is it after 24 hours?).

Alrighty then, bureaucracy threw me a curve ball again and as it turns out, I can only shoot my film at the main location during weekdays, until Fridays, not Saturday and Sunday, like actually planned. Only good thing in this is that I have now all the time of the world to participate in this weekend‘s Splatfest. Would really love to join with some fellow members from Team Gherk-Out and play some Team Matches.

@shani Huh, I leave Splatoon 2 always open and it only tells me the news when Salmon Run closes or opens.

News is only retriggered when there's new content or when Salmon Run opens (not when it closes).

Edit: Speaking of new content, this week's weapon is the Custom Goo Tuber with Curling Bombs and Inkjet. I feel like this makes more sense than the original Goo Tuber set (Suction Bombs and Splashdown). Perhaps it'll be a little less maligned now?

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