Pearl whirls about
We recently learned that Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass ‘Side Order’ is seeing release sometime in Spring 2024. What’s a Splatoon fan to do until then? Well, why not read a fresh round of details on this Wave 2 DLC that just came out today?
Off the Hook member Pearl is one of the characters appearing in the Side Order DLC, but not in the way you might expect. In the strange world of the City of Order, the feisty band member has been turned into a drone. It’s not clear why this has happened, but Peral doesn’t seem to mind. Pearl will fly around and support Agent 8 as they explore the Spire of Order.
Located at the heart of the City of Order is the Spire of Order, a mysterious place where the rules of the real world do not seem to apply. The layout of each floor changes every time you enter. And while the elevator does work, it only goes up on floor at a time.
In Side Order, you can improve Agent 8’s abilities using “Color Chips” that you set on a “Palette”. Each color chip has its own characteristics, and can boost your attack power, movement speed, attack range, and even speed. When you go to challenge one of the many floors of the Spire of Order, you have to choose the color chips you’re going to use and set them on the palette.
