Splatoon 2 was updated to Version 4.5.0 this weekend, bringing with it a healthy number of fixes and changes to some of the main, sub, and special weapons. As it turns out, it also introduced a bug causing the game to crash in specific situations, but Nintendo has acknowledged the problem and is working on a fix.

Players have reportedly been experiencing problems when playing Clam Blitz mode on the Piranha Pit stage, with the game seemingly crashing in several cases. The official Splatoon Twitter account notes that a second update will be pushed to the game in the near future to fix the issue.

In the meantime, the offending stage has been removed from the Clam Blitz rotation, so you should be able to jump in as usual without encountering any issues.

Are you still playing Splatoon 2 regularly? Have you been playing since the new changes were introduced? Let us know with a comment.
