New Splatoon 2 map has a funny name and kick-ass layout


I’m not squidding

Having April 1 be a Saturday was supposed to be safe. Gaming news is rarely announced on weekends, so it was the perfect opportunity to turn our site over to the dogs without having to worry about missing anything important. At least, that’s what we thought. Instead, there was a bit of news yesterday that has me quite excited.

At the ESL Europe Grand Final (congrats to team Rising Moon), we were given a look at a new stage in Splatoon 2: Humpback Pump Track.

A new stage for #Splatoon2 was just announced during the @ESLSplatoon Europe Grand Final!

Introducing Humpback Pump Track.

I am really digging on the indoor BMX track design and totally jealous of Rising Moon, who walked away with brand new Nintendo Switch consoles as areward for their win.
