Play as an Octoling in Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion

Agent 8 is the main character in a brand new single-player mode for Splatoon 2. The Octo Expansion sheds new light on characters we’ve met and more lore about the world. After completing numerous levels, you’ll be allowed to play as an actual Octoling during online matches!

Pre-purchasing for the expansion is available now. It is the first time players will have to pay for content at $19.99 but doing so will get you some Octoling-themed gear to wear right away. There is no set date for the expansion to arrive except for sometime this summer.

But there’s so much more to know! Rank X, new and returning stages along with fresh gear are all on the way next month. The previously announced Pearl and Marina amiibo are scheduled to arrive on July 13. Stay tuned for more Splatoon 2 news!

Check out the video below for the full announcement.
