The first Splatoon 3 DLC adds new maps, weapons, and more

The first round of Splatoon 3 DLC is just around the corner, Nintendo announced in a new trailer for the multiplayer game. The DLC is officially called Splatoon 3 – Chill Season and launches Dec. 1, 2022, as a free update for all Splatoon 3 owners with an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription, which, if you’re playing Splatoon outside of its single-player mode, you have to have anyway. 

Splatoon 3 Chill Season introduces a brand-new map called Brinewater Springs, set in the middle of a bubbling outdoor sauna, alongside a returning map – Flounder Heights from the original Splatoon. This one is a dream for charge shot users. It’s set on top of an apartment complex with plenty of high vantage points to splat unsuspecting foes on the grates below.

13 weapons are rolling out with the DLC as well, including 10 modified weapons from previous Splatoon games and 3 brand-new devices: a roller, a shooter, and a charger. 

Competitive players at the top of their game can finally join the elite-tier X rank battles in Splatoon 3’s ranked mode. The PvE Salmon Run mode is getting a bit of a shake-up as well in the form of a new-ish map. Salmonids are invading Wahoo World in Chill Season, Splatoon’s theme park-inspired map, instead of the usual coastal location.

This is just the first round of Splatoon 3 DLC. Nintendo previously promised to support the game long after it launched, including with substantial new DLC, likely in line with the Octo-Expansion for Splatoon 2.
