Since the announcement of Splatoon 2’s first paid DLC, octo expansion, Nintendo hasn’t given an exact release date. But today the official German Splatoon 2 Facebook page advertises the expansion as releasing 13th July. Confirmation from other Nintendo sources should come out soon hopefully.
This weekend, US players have been battling it out to see what is better: love or money, with team love winning overall.
Even though team money won by team matches, it wasn’t enough as team love’s votes and solo match performance managed to beat team money.
