Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass Wave 2 Side Order Coming Up In February


Nintendo has announced that the second wave for the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass will arrive February 22. The single-player DLC–called Side Order–focuses on replayability as players fight their way up the Spire of Order.

Side Order sees Inkopolis Square missing its colorful aesthetic as well as its residents, so it’s up to Agent 8 and a helpful drone (apparently Pearl) to figure out what’s happening. This means taking on waves of fishy foes and using color chips to enhance Agent 8’s skills. The newest trailer for Side Order is below:

On top of the video, Nintendo also shared new art for Splatoon 3’s Side Order DLC on X (formerly known as Twitter). The image shows Agent 8 and Pearl at the bottom, looking upward at the Spire of Order.

The Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass was originally revealed almost a year ago at a Nintendo Direct in February 2023. The first wave is titled Inkopolis Plaza and saw players returning to the original game’s city.

Splatoon 3 launched in September 2022 and has been getting seasonal updates, too. For instance, the latest is Chill Season. In addition, back in November, three new Splatoon amiibo became available to buy. The figurines are Frye, Shiver, and Big Man.
