New Splatoon 2 update due out in a few days (4.3.1)

Splatoon 2

Nintendo just announced the next Splatoon 2 update, set for December 18 at 5 p.m. PT. Though the patch notes in English aren’t out just yet, the Japanese text has been uploaded online. In version 4.3.1, players can expect a slew of weapon changes, bug fixes, and more.

The previous update, 4.3.0, marked Splatoon 2’s final new content pack. After well over a year of supporting the title, Nintendo’s moving on to other Switch games it seems. It’s great to see them continually tweaking the game, however.

Are you a Splatoon 2 player? If so, do you expect any major gameplay changes to come from the update? Be sure to let us know down in the comments section.
