Splatoon | Dangerous Map

Jump right in, the ink’s fine.

It’s been six weeks since Splatoon was released and it’s a very different game today than on launch day. New modes, weapons and maps have been coming out weekly and tomorrow will be no different. The ninth map is called Moray Towers and was shown last week during a Nintendo Treehouse preview of the new Tower Control mode.

Moray Towers, as its name implies, is a vertical map, with lots of elevation and risky jumps to get through if you want to make it across the map. It’s the most imposing map so far, with lots of chances to fall if you aren’t careful where you move.

What a nice view.

Nintendo also recently announced when the next Splatfest is hitting and it’s going to change the time a little bit from the last one. It will be on Friday, July 17th at 9pm and it will end on Saturday the 18th at 9pm. While the first one was about Cats vs. Dogs, this is all about the age old question of what’s better: Roller Coasters or Water Slides? You’ll have to pick a side and fight for your right to slip and slide or scream and shout. Yeah, I don’t even know if that made sense, but Splatfest was a lot of fun last week, especially if you were on the winning team (Go Dogs!).

Check out the latest pictures of Moray Towers and let us know in the comments what you’re going to fight for in the upcoming Splatfest.

Splatoon | Victory!

Upwards towards victory!
