Salmon Run expansion? Yes pleeeeease!

Gotta say it again: I love Splatoon's charm! The chat logs in the Octo Expansion are pretty great! Well, the one that I've unlocked so far is, anyway. And there's some cool new tunes as well! The one for level B01/A03 is friggin' sweet. Mellow but a tad weird. Love it!

FYI there's a cool new Nintendo rewards thing that you can get a PDF of an alternate cover for your Switch case that has the expansion on it instead of the traditional art. I really love this idea, so I got it and am going to print a copy to swap covers. Super cool! Reminds me of my younger days when I used to make PS1 CD cover art for all the games I... got... in certain ways that I am ashamed to admit.

If they did this with other games, I would toss all my Platinum coins in that direction for sure. 100%.

@J.K. Riki

Cool tip! Thanks for the heads up!

Wow! The new Grizzco Slosher can take out Flyfish without using bombs!

And for some reason, that's not available in Europe.

My quest through the Octo Expansion continues. It's a really good way to practice after having been away from the game for so long, 'cause it can be quite demanding at times. Good stuff.

Also, I just gotta post some of the music I yapped about.

This is how Splatoon music should be, IMO. Contrasting with the cute and the funny. Like the heavy guitars and the growling from the first game.

I could send you the cover file, if you want.

That would be really nice of you! Although I might not get to print it anyway since my printer's on the fritz and the ones at work have weird ideas of what colours are supposed to look like.

Does anyone want to play this all-random Salmon Run set today?

Beat the Octo Expansion just now, but I've still got a lot of stuff to come back to.

I adore Splatoon's world and the lore. I honestly want to see a Splatoon 3 for the plot's sake. Not just that, obviously, but it's becoming an increasingly big draw for me to see where they're gonna take that post-apocalyptic universe of theirs.

Is there another place people hang out when they play? Oftentimes I'll see many people online, but they're not in Discord, so I have no way of getting their attention. This is why Switch really needs messaging within itself!

@Mop it up

If you see me online, and you want to see if I wanna play, just direct message me to get my attention. My phone will alert me. I don't hang out in Discord while playing most games unless I already have a reason to.


I got the point where I had four things. Now I'm trying to beat every challenge before picking that phone up...

In retrospect I should probably have done that too. Not because I missed out on anything, but the final part of the expansion was good enough that a longer build-up to it had been nice. To me, Octo Expansion picked up all the standard campaign's slack in a big way, despite recycled enemy designs and such.

Wrong thread me thinks?

I just 100% completed the Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC. What an awesome pack that was! Fun story addition, challenging stages, and a unique way to cap off the overall Splatoon 2 single-player. I am incredibly content.

Glad my future in-laws let me play a bit while they're here so I could finish this up this weekend.

Every station, in every way, collecting everything. Every battle won. Every mem cake received. Octoling surfaced. All items earned.

Good night.

Loving the Octo Expansion so far. So much style. I didn't care for the regular single player campaign, but this is Splatoon at its best. Small stages are perfect, the characters are great, and the music is awesome. 🐙❤️

Does anyone want to play Salmon Run or League Battles today?



I couldn't agree more. Octo Expansion has made one of my favorite games even better!

How many new courses have been added since the game came out? I feel like I didn't recognize a few last night.
Posted: 06/24/18, 22:48:35

6 new stages and 6 returning stages have been added since launch not including all of the Shifty Station stages. The 7th new stage, New Albacore Hotel, is coming soon.
