The Splatoon 3 game’s Expansion Pass paid DLC* Wave 1: Inkopolis and Wave 2: Side Order are now available for the Nintendo Switch family of systems. You can keep reading to learn more! Please note: the full version of Splatoon 3 is required to use DLC; sold separately.


You can make Inkopolis from the first Splatoon game your stomping (err…splatting?) ground with the first wave of the Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass DLC*  called Inkopolis. Another major metropolis of the Splatoon universe, Inkopolis has changed a bit in the past several years with some additional shopkeepers. Ready to jam? Then you can come to Inkopolis to see some fresh Squid Sisters performances during Splatfests**.


A new single-player campaign, Side Order, super jumps to Splatoon 3 in the second wave of this DLC . Step into the role of Agent 8, a young Octoling who defected from the Octarians. You can see what’s become of Inkopolis Square, the central area featured in Splatoon 2, and…hey, what’s Pearl doing here? And why is she a flying drone?
