Get ready to shop til you drop and fire ink til they pop: Arowana Mall is the next map coming to Splatoon 2. Any squidkids worth their seasalt already know the ins and outs of this narrow shopping center, but for those of you more fresh to the Inkopolis scene it’s got a feel and flow all its own.

Chargers can send you straight to checkout from the catwalk, while the chokepoints make for some great subweapon shenanigans. The real mainstage of this showdown though is the center platform, where it just always seems to become a little less Turf War and a little more king of the hill.
 


 
You can go ahead and get excited now, as Arowana Mall’s grand (re)opening is coming very soon. Japan’s getting it at 11 a.m. on February 2nd, meaning it’s North American evening unveiling won’t be far behind.
