Video: Splatoon 3 DLC Wave 1 is all style and no substance
First paid DLC pack for Splatoon 3 now out and as expected it adds Inkopolis from first match as an additional central area.
Players will need to wait for Wave 2 to actually learn some pertinent new content, though what that will entail exactly is unknown at this point. For now, while the addition of Inkopolis is a great return for longtime fans of the franchise, it doesn’t seem to add anything substantial to dig into.
Our lovable video producer, Alex, is trying out Season 1 of the DLC and has some of his own thoughts on new content. Check out the video above for all the details, but here’s a quick look at what he had to say:
“The Inkopolis DLC is aimed at long-time fans of the series who still remember the 720p days of Splatoon on the Wii U, and I’m absolutely one of them. It’s definitely a ride to be immersed in. in the old center again, with the sounds and sights of years past, and as an option, it’s a fun and harmless inclusion.
“That said, it’s presented as a 1-on-2 batch, suggesting that it’s about half of the total DLC we can expect for Splatoon 3, and in that sense it’s completely lacking. doors stores in Splatsville, which means their inventory is identical every day, and any item purchased in one center is sold in the other.
“Things are a bit more cramped than in Splatsville, which means you can get to certain areas a bit quicker, but we’re really extending our stay here. It’s a comeback. should have been a neat little bonus for those who bought the DLC, and not something advertised as worth half the entry price. we wouldn’t have a problem, but the Inkopolis DLC isn’t quite the selling point Nintendo seems to think it is.”
