While the summer of free content may be over, Nintendo isn't finished with Splatoon just yet. The game is still in need of some balance tweaks, so players should be happy to see version 2.2.0 arrive at some point today.
Nintendo Inquirer notes that the main takeaways from today's update includes changes made to all class weapons, adjustments to various stages, new matchmaking for S-rank players, and rule adjustments Tower Control mode.
What do those changes entail? Tower Control players will observe that the Special Gauge will charge gradually for whoever controls the Tower, regardless of which team is leading. If neither team has the Rainmaker, the Special Gauge will charge for the losing team, though the rate at which it increases automatically has been slowed.
That comes along with a slew of bug fixes, all of which can be found in the Splatoon patch notes. Look for the patch to hit at some point today. For those that haven't logged into the game in a while, be on the lookout for the new Rapid Blaster Pro weapon, which was added over the weekend.
