For Splatoon fans waiting for a little extra content to shake up the online action, today brings good news. Very soon there'll be an extra mode, map and gun available for extra ink splatting action.

Included in today's Nintendo Direct Micro video, it's confirmed that the following will all arrive today at 7pm Pacific / 10pm Eastern time, which is 3am UK / 4am CET.

Ranked Battle mode - those ranked level 10 and above will be able to tackle the Splat Zone mode.
