Splatoon 2 dev on Clam Blitz, possibility of more single player content and playable Octolings

Splatoon 2 has been out for a good amount of time on Switch, but Nintendo isn't done with the game by any means. More updates, tweaks, and content is on the way. Eurogamer sat down with Hisashi Nogami, Splatoon's producer, to see what other goodies and changes might be in store for the title.

E: Are there other long-standing issues you'd maybe like to address in future? (I'm thinking specifically of having to sit through the updates upon booting up the game - as much as I love Pearl and Marina, it'd be ace to have the option to skip through it so I could get playing even quicker!)

Hisashi Nogami: While not a problem per se, we would like players to try playing Splatoon 2 with lots of different weapons instead of just one all the time. With the latest Ranked Battle mode, Clam Blitz, players will need to adopt new tactics and strategies compared to the other modes. Players might find unexpected success with weapons they haven't used before. I hope everyone will try out lots of new combinations to find which weapons work best for them on which stages.

E: The multiplayer has seen a lot of support through updates. Is there a possibility of the single-player also getting an update in the future?

Hisashi Nogami: For players who simply wish to go solo, take on the Octarians and enjoy honing their Splatoon 2 skills, the purpose of Hero Mode is also to get players to understand the appeal of the different types of weapons by having them use a whole variety of them to complete the stages that appear in this mode. It's also there to build up the lore for the world of Splatoon 2 through the story of the Squid Sisters. As this mode is now, it's achieved those goals. At this stage, I can't say anything about what we may or may not do with it in future.

E: There's a lot of speculation that playable Octolings could be a thing in the future. Is there anything you could say about that?

Hisashi Nogami: We cannot comment on speculations.
