Who’s ready for more Splatoon? As you all may well know, Splatoon is getting ready for another big update on April 12th, just five days from now. In a PSA (Public Squid Announcement) made on the official Splatoon Tumblr, Nintendo is giving us some details on what’s to come.

First off, due to the fairly large amount of content coming in the update, Splatoon’s servers will be offline and under maintenance for just over an hour on the 12th. You can check out the times based on your timezones below.

PST – 4:50 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
MST – 5:50 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
CST – 6:50 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
EST – 7:50 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
UK – 12:50 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. (April 13th)
EU – 1:50 a.m. – 3:00 a.m. (April 13th)

An hour afterward the update finishes (about 7:00 p.m. PST), eight new weapons will also become available via Ammo Knights, known as Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 1! Nintendo is detailing some of the new weapons over on the Splatoon Tumblr, but we’ll give you a quick rundown of them here, as well.
