New Arena for Splatoon 2 on Friday

After yesterday’s rather enormous balancing update, Splatoon 2 is getting itself a new map! Nintendo made the announcement at the same time as showing off the new amiibo for Pearl and Marina, so fans of the game have plenty to sustain them for the next little while.

Fellow game site Nintendo Everything has translated the details from Nintendo’s Japanese account:

“As you can see, the details of the sport have been fairly well preserved. The arena is complete with a full-size locker room, polished wooden court, concession stands, jumbotron, VIP seating, and memorabilia shop.

Furthermore, it appears that the arena is converted into an ink-battle stage during the offseason, and this unique location should make for exciting battles indeed. We suspect that the mid-court area, along with the two basketball hoops on each side of the court, will be a focal point for all battle types. Gaining control of the hoop on your side of the stage will give your team the high ground you need to push forward. We’ll continue to closely monitor this new development and will provide updates in due course.”

The Goby Arena stage will be available at 9pm EST. If you haven’t played in a while, maybe this will bring you back in? And if you’ve been splatting regularly, well, it’s just more to love.
