Splatoon's had more than its fair share of free content updates, and since last week's Nintendo Direct we now know that they haven't finished fiddling with the game just yet. In in effort, we assume, to try and make the game more varied, several changes have been brought into effect for version 2.6.

Most notable are the changes to various gear abilities, giving players more reason to use what were largely redundant abilities in the eyes of many fans. There are also some pretty drastic changes to the way in which Splatfests will work, suggesting that we've got plenty more of these organised events to look forward to in the future.

Check out the video below for a full rundown of all the delicious changes coming into effect in upgrade to Splatoon 2.6.
