Nintendo’s third-person shooter game Splatoon has been “datamined” to reveal upcoming content. There are two new maps, 33 new weapons, and three new modes.
The information was derived from a Twitter user who claimed to have hacked the Splatoon retail edition to find content hidden in the game’s files.
The two new maps are Camp and Skyscraper. This is a floorplan of the Skyscraper stage:
New weapons are listed as:
- Sploosh-o-matic – Squid Beakons & Killer Wail
- Neo Sploosh-o-matic – Point Sensor & Kraken
- Neo Splash-o-matic – Burst Bombs & Inkzooka
- N-ZAP ’89 – Sprinkler & Inkstrikes
- Custom Dual Squelcher – Squid Beakon & Killer Wail
- Luna Blaster – Ink Mines & Inkzooka

- H-3 Nozzlenose D – Point Sensor & Inkzooka
- Carbon Roller – Burst Bombs & Inkzooka
- Carbon Roller Deco – Seekers & Bomb Rush
- Inkbrush Nouveau – Ink Mines & Bubbler

The Sploosh-o-matic is described as a weapon for close-corner shooting. The Range Blaster fires long-range explosives at a slower rate. The H-3 Nozzlenose includes an Echolocator to track enemies and better utilize a slow fire rate. The Octobrush shoots ink and Squid Beakons while enabling players to escape on the Kraken.
The new modes are Splat Zones, Tower Control, and Rainmaker. The only one currently detailed, Rainmaker is essentially capture the flag, wherein gamers must capture the Rainmaker, which is protected by a shield that must be broken to carry. Players cannot Super Jump with the Rainmaker but can shoot ink with it.
Breitbart reached out to Nintendo for comment on the leak but did not receive a reply by the time of publication of this article.
