At launch, it could certainly be argued that Splatoon had just enough stages to get by, but this was assuaged over the coming months as Nintendo introduced new stages to the rotation; in addition to new gear and other goodies. While the post release DLC for Splatoon has been exceedingly generous, one must wonder what's been left on the cutting room floor. We mentioned a few weeks back a scrapped form of warping via toilets and it now appears that art for a cut stage appears later on in the official Splatoon Art Book.

The stage in question appears to be a somewhat foreboding coal mine. There are likely numerous reasons for why it never showed up in the final version of the game, but perhaps it has something to do with the rather bland presentation of the stage. Any given stage is already made infinitely more colorful by the battles that take place, but all of the existent stages are colorful in their own right before any inking takes place. Nonetheless, perhaps this'll surface again in a future update.

What do you think? Would you have liked to have seen this stage appear in the game? Do you think we'll see it again in an update? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
