    About Splatoon 3: Side Order

    Splatoon 3‘s next big story expansion, Side Order, is available now. Nintendo provided an overview for the DLC via a trailer released in February. The trailer reveals what fans can expect from the expansion’s gameplay loop. Players can try to traverse the massive “Spire of Order.” Along the way, they can which floor to go to and whether to set the difficulty to easy, medium, or hard. The higher the difficulty, the harder the challenge for completing the floor. It also means better rewards and better color chip enhancements.

    The color chip enhancements are upgrades similar to those you might find in a rougelite like Hades or Sifu. Essentially, they upgrade Agent 8’s abilities and enhance them in certain ways. For example, it can increase your firing rate, give you a faster cooldown on abilities, and more.

    However, much like a roguelite, if you die/fail to complete your objection, you are forced to start from the beginning and you lose all enhancements. That said, the enhancements you earned are converted to points which you can use to install permanent upgrades to health and more.

    Lastly, Splatoon 3 is available now on the Nintendo Switch. The next Spring Fest will begin on April 19 and last until April 21.
