Nintendo has announced that Splatoon 3 will be updated to Ver. 4.1.0 on July 26th, 2023. Ahead of the update, Nintendo has shared the full patch notes for people to skim through. You can take a look at those notes below.
This update focuses on making tweaks to multiplayer.
We have improved certain weapons to make them easier to use and modified some less popular weapons to be a bit closer to popular weapons in performance. We hope this will encourage a wider selection of weapon usage.
Additionally, we have made adjustments to some sub weapons to make them easier to use in conjunction with main weapons.
We have also adjusted some special weapons. In addition to similar adjustments mentioned above to encourage a wider selection of usage, we’ve dialed back the performance of some special weapons that had been modified in the past. Their specifications are now closer to the original weapon specifications.
We plan on releasing the next update at the end of the current season. It will focus primarily on further weapon balance adjustments and adding features for the new season starting in September.
