Splatoon 2 Update Coming End of February

Nintendo's breakout franchise is getting another update near the end of February.

Splatoon 2 is the gift that keeps on giving. Nintendo News reports that at the end of February, we're getting a new patch for Splatoon 2, promising "a number of new features and gameplay tweaks."

While overall details on the patch are slim, this news comes straight from the official twitter and is far from shocking. Splatoon is one of Nintendo's newest IP's and is doing incredible things. Splatoon 2 is massive and on the Switch, which is equally as massive if not more so, having sold 1.5 million units in December of 2017 alone.

Splatoon 2's success is a true testament to both "right place, right time" and to the staying power of the Switch. The series started on the Wii U (a console considered to be a failure) but now has gone on to become a huge money maker for Nintendo. The series just needed to be on the right console, and judging from the numbers, with 1.53 million copies sold as of December 2017, it seems to have found its place.
