Happy camping

Nintendo has confirmed via its Facebook page that the Camp Triggerfish map will go live tomorrow morning in the UK.

This new map has a tribal feel which sets it apart from the levels we've seen so far - it's like a wooden assault course, complete with squid-like totem poles. The stage is unique in that it features floodgates which - in the game's Turf War mode - only open when there's one minute left on the clock, drastically changing attack routes through the map.

The map launches in North America at 7PM PT tomorrow, too.

More info has been posted on the official Splatoon Tumblr account:

When the Inklings aren't busy making s'mores or boondoggle key chains, they enjoy the majestic scenery afforded by camping the best way they know how – Turf War! Battles here play out across a series of bridges, which you'll have to cross to reach your opponents' turf.

Each team base at Camp Triggerfish is outfitted with a set of floodgates. When the gates are down, it's easier for the other team to come and go as they please. In Turf War, the gates lower with one minute left on the clock, leading the way for late-game assaults. In Ranked Battle, they stay down so players can come and go as they please. Watch out in Tower Control! The tower's path is almost always over water and you'll need to show off your best squid skills to avoid getting dunked.

Starting tomorrow at 7 PM PT, Camp Triggerfish will be added to the stage rotation. Maybe after we're done battling we can gather round the fire and sing some jaunty campfire tunes!

Thanks to John Leith for the heads up.
