Splatoon 2’s final content update drops on December 5

Good news, Splatoon 2 fans, you’re getting a content update on December 5th! The bad news is that it’s the last one you’re getting ever forever, so savor it. Yes, the final update is bringing with it five new weapons and two new abilities, and from then on you’ll be left to play in the same state forever while the game enjoys the long yawn of its maintenance mode.

What? No, no game would ever continue offering content patches in maintenance mode. Don’t be ridiculous.

The actually somewhat better news is that players can still expect Splatfest events and bug fixes for a while, it’s only the actual content that will no longer be arriving. Which is still a pretty good lifespan for a game that launched back in July of 2017, so let’s pour out a paint can in celebration. Although probably not on a street corner, the city might get mad about that. Vandalism and all.

I saw people defending the Nintendo Online subscription as a way to fund Splatoon 2 getting more updates, guess that wasn’t true (I never thought it would be).

Still if they keep getting Splatfests for a while that’s good. When they dropped Splatoon 1 support, it was dropped hard dead, online website down and then Miiverse not long after.

My bet is that it was for smash and really only smash

If Smash doesn’t have dedicated servers then Nintendo is having a laugh, because so far everything else has been peer-to-peer.

Yeah i had to sadly stop playing splat2 when the sub came, it’s no way near its value despite its “cheap” price.

Same, I haven’t bought it yet either. I actually went back to playing Mario Kart on my Wii U instead, it still has a healthy player base thankfully.

Nintendo is just trash in many respects. It’s annoying they make desirable games.
