Are you excited for a fresh adventure in the colorful world of Splatoon 3? Get ready, because a significant additional adventure is headed your way very soon! Dubbed “The Face of Order,” the eagerly awaited second installment of the expansion pass is set to splash onto the Nintendo Switch on February 22nd. Nintendo dropped this exciting news with a short teaser trailer that’s bubbling with enigma, hinting at the intriguing content that awaits you.
Picture this: You step into the shoes of Agent 8, who stirs from slumber in a version of Cromopolis that’s both unsettling and unrecognizable. Gone are the vibrant hues and bustling inhabitants that once filled the city. It’s a mystery that’s as stark as the color-drained buildings that now stand silent. But fear not, for you’re not alone in this desolated urban landscape. Joining you is a drone claiming to be none other than Perla from Cefalopop. Together, as the dynamic duo, you’ll ascend the Tower of Order, honing your skills and uncovering secrets as you go.
Unlike Splatoon 3’s typically multiplayer-centric gameplay, this expansion hones in on the single-player experience. This was teased during the September 2023 Nintendo Direct, where intriguing gameplay elements were revealed. For instance, you can affect your adventure with cards that adjust various action modifiers. Choose the easy difficulty, and you might enjoy a 30% boost in explosive damage, successfully surpassing which could net you 90 credits. And it seems that these game-changers accumulate throughout your playthrough, adding layers of strategy to your solo mission.
However, one question looms large: the curious case of the missing color. The game’s stages show off a strikingly monochrome aesthetic, disrupted only by the eerie dark green glow from certain adversaries. The cause of this chromatic disappearance remains shrouded in mystery.
For those eager to dive into these new depths, the Splatoon 3 expansion pass is available for purchase on the Nintendo eShop at 24.99 euros. With the purchase, you’re not just getting the upcoming adventure. You’ll also be treated to a treasure trove of in-game goodies: 123,000 game credits, three food tickets doubling your experience, a complete set of drink tickets, and stylish Squid and Cefalopop badge wallpapers. Plus, you’ll gain access to the first part of the pass, which resurrects the iconic Cromópolis square in all its original glory.
Get ready to unravel the mysteries of a colorless world and restore life to Cromopolis in this new chapter of Splatoon 3. Whether you’re a seasoned Inklings veteran or a new recruit to the splat-tacular showdowns, ‘The Face of Order’ promises to be an unforgettable solo voyage in the Splatoon universe. So mark your calendars for February 22nd – it’s time to make a splash!
