Today’s Nintendo Direct has been a huge one. The showcase kicked off with the official release date for Pikmin 4, which made a lot of players happy. After that, another big Nintendo franchise had a big announcement. Splatoon 3 announced its official expansion pass that is coming this year. It’ll have two waves, and the first one is coming real soon. The expansion pass will take players to Inkopolis with the first wave to see some new characters and shops, and the second one holds a lot of mystery but is looking great. So, if you want more from Splatoon 3 in the form of a DLC, this is the time to jump back into the game and prepare for what’s coming.
Splatoon 3 Expansion Pass arrives in the Spring of 2023
We won’t have to wait that long to experience the expansion pass of Splatoon 3. According to the latest trailer, the expansion pass will release on the Nintendo Switch during the Spring of 2023. This means that the new additions aren’t far away from getting here, and we’ll be experiencing a lot of new features in the game. The most noteworthy one is Inkopolis, as players will be able to roam around there and see some familiar faces.

Besides that, there is a second wave coming to the expansion pass of Splatoon 3. The second wave shows something called ‘Side Order,’ which remains a mystery. Still, it looks great, and many players can also expect it to get here this year. This is great as Splatoon 3 has been a huge success for the Japanese company, with many players enjoying the game since it launched. If 2022 was a huge year for Splatoon 3, it would seem that 2023 will be equally big for the game due to the expansion pass. You can pre-order it right now on the official Nintendo Store. If you do, keep an eye out for more updates about what’s coming with the Splatoon 3 DLC.
