    The Splattershot Nova is a brand-new variant of the original Splattershot with a slightly different design.

The Ballistics team at Splatoon Research Lab provides a brief look into the new weapon:

    As shown above, Brinewater Springs is one of the new maps coming to Splatoon 3 Chill Season in December. The new map is filled with hot springs and hills, so defending the high ground is key to victory.

    Splatoon 3 Chill Season introduces the Big Swig Roller, a new roller that utilizes “wide-rolling technology.” Although the weapon is large, it’s rather efficient at using ink. As a result, players will be able to cover wide areas with fewer swings than a standard roller.

    Flounder Heights returns from the original Splatoon game for Splatoon 3 Chill Season. The map has been redeveloped, but returning players should feel right at home. Learning to control areas from the rooftops is key to winning matches on Flounder Heights.

    The Splatoon Research Lab reminds players that X Battles are coming to Splatoon 3 when the Chill Season launches. Players ranked S+0 or higher may take part in highly competitive matches by putting X Power on the line. X Battles are split into two divisions: Takoroka Division and Tentatek Division. The Takoroka Division covers Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand whereas the Americas and Europe play in the Tentatek Division.
