Nintendo has revealed that its exclusive, third-person online shooter, Splatoon, which was released in the UK last Friday, will receive the first of its free updates tonight.
A new map, called Port Mackerel, will become available to players, bringing the playable map total up to 6 altogether. Alongside this, the first free weapon, the N-ZAP85 will also be unlocked. The weapon is a homage to the grey NES Zapper light gun. Nintendo describes the weapon as a “rapid-fire shooter with some impressive ink efficiency.”
Also, Splatoon’s ranked match mode Splat Zones will be unlocking at the same time. Splat Zones was due to unlock when enough players reached level 10.
The new features will unlock at 7pm tonight PT. They will unlock in the morning for European players.
