During the last Nintendo Direct, Nintendo dropped the rather surprising announcement that Splatoon 2 would be receiving a new single player expansion. Details have been a bit thin on the ground, but it promises 80 new stages and a much darker tone; hopefully adding a hearty amount of content to the game’s already great single player campaign. IGN recently got to sit down with Hisashi Nogami—the producer of Splatoon 2—to talk about the upcoming expansion, and it sounds like the team has been quite ambitious with this new content.

Nogami begins by explaining how the 80 stages will have varying mission objectives; while the initial campaign was a simple A to B affair, the new campaign will task you with new kinds of challenges that encourage different kinds of play. Along with this, you’ll be given greater freedom over the kind of loadouts you can choose for each level, with the goal being to expose players to a wider variety of weapons that they maybe haven’t tried out in multiplayer yet.
