Some new info and screens on the Octo Expansion, translated from the Japanese Splatoon twitter by Siliconera:

http://www.siliconera.com/2018/03/12/splatoon-2s-pearl-marina-will-help-skip-levels-octo-expansion/

Most of it we already knew, like 80+ levels and your allies being Pearl, Marina, and Cap'n Cuttlefish, but a new tidbit is that if you get stuck you can request help from Pearl and Marina to skip stages. New tracks from Off the Hook will also be featured.

This Octo Expansion looks awesome! So awesome infact it pushes my expectations on what Splatoon 2's lifetime sales just might be.

I do think it could give the game a decent sales boost by refreshing it in people's minds and putting it back in the spotlight for those who may have forgotten about it. I mean, I don't think it'll add millions to its lifetime sales, but it could give a nice short term uptick.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Looking great. I really dig the 80's feel.

Also, before splatoon 2 launched, they said DLC support would on for about an year. Looks like they are finishing with a BANG.

Octolings will be playable in multiplayer too. This is especially great since playable octolings were near the top of people's wishlists for splatoon



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Great now I have to consider finishing the singel player.

Played 73% of it so far and haven’t touched SP since last summer.



Could be a placeholder, but the eshop says the Octo Expansion is coming on the 31st of July.

Not a fan of the price, but a new campaign and playable Octolings sounds very good to me.

Its 80 levels in an all-new campaign. Then, you get the Octolings as a reward. Plus, bonus gear. I think its arguable that its worth $20. Whether it is or not, tough to tell at this point since we can only go by the little gameplay footage.

I think eventually they would have had to decided on paid DLC since they've been on the free updates train for quite some time and even going back to the first game, including new gear, new (and old) stages, new rankings, and a new multiplayer mode.

Well, 80 lvls indeed is a lot of levels. That and the Octo gear changes things.
