The Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass continues to get content with hits second wave of DLC coming with Side Order bringing in more single-player content. Sider Order was released as part of the Expansion Pass for Splatoon 3 on the Nintendo Switch on February 22, 2024.
What content comes with Sider Order?
Here is a background about the single-player content Splatoon players will check out later this month.
In Side Order, you play as Agent 8, a resident of Inkopolis who wakes up in a new “world of order,” where the color spectrum goes from white to … a little less white to … kinda gray to … well, that’s pretty much it. What’s an Octoling to do? Figure out how to bring a little color back into the picture, that’s what! Alongside a drone who claims to be Off the Hook member Pearl, Agent 8 must battle to the top of the Spire of Order against hordes of surprising enemies and obstacles.
On each floor of the Spire there are objectives that change each time you make an attempt, and they get harder the higher you climb. Objectives may include defeating enemies, securing specific areas for a set amount of time, and overcoming other skill-testing challenges. Use the color chips you receive to customize your Palette to your liking with enhancements such as increased firing speed, raised damage output and more. Fail to reach the top and you’ll have to start over – but the color chips you collect will be converted into a currency that can be exchanged for some permanent and helpful upgrades. Those upgrades might just give you a fighting chance of reaching the top next time around.
Designed to be replayed over and over as you update Agent 8 with powerful (and colorful) abilities, Side Order is a fun, challenging way to level up your Splatoon skills, for newcomers and vets alike.
A new Splatoon 3 “Fresh Season” releases March 1, 2024, and will bring in new multiplayer stages such as the Marlin Airport battle stage and the Bonerattle Arena Salmon Run stage, new weapons like Brella and Dualies variants, and additional new items like the Fizzband that can be used during the Splatfests.
