Having previously had no issues before, I am now unable to access the alleyway in the upper-right corner of Inkopolis and I'm faced with the message "To enter this area, you need to purchase and download Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion". But I have and this is confirmed in the eshop when it states it has been purchased. As stated I have played this DLC before with no issues. There is no re-downloadable content to download via the eshop menu so genuinely have run out of ideas. Has anyone come across this before and can anyone help?

Have you checked that the regions line up? A friend a mine bought the Octo Expansion from a different region than his game cart, and they didn't sync. What proceded was a string of emails in Japanese which eventually won his a refund and a small amount of pride. But yeah, give it a check.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't reread your message carefully enough. If it's suddenly booted you out after previously working fine that's... odd. I've not heard of it happening before. Do you still have any clothing or other things from the Expansion?

It's actually my lads game and he assures me that he can still access the DLC only clothing. He purchased it a while ago and was happy with it but then it just stopped letting him access that specific area (which is the main part!). I've had a thorough look at how to delete DLC content and download again to no avail. As I can't repurchase it (as it correctly states that it's already been purchased) there is no way of accessing that area. Very weird!!

Try this:

1. Go to System Settings -> Data Management
2. Click on "Manage Software"
3. Find and select "Splatoon 2"
4. Select "Check for Corrupt Data"

See if this works.

You can also archive/delete the software and redownload it.

1. Go to System Settings -> Data Management
2. Click on "Manage Software"
3. Find and select "Splatoon 2"
4. Select "Archive Software"

If you have the physical version, it will delete the updates and DLC data. If you have the digital version, it will delete the whole game.

5. Go back to the home screen.
6. Select "Splatoon 2"
7. It should give you the option to redownload. If not, redownload from the eShop.

Carried out the above (with the physical version) and still the same result. May have to contact the big N for assistance on this one......
