A group of Splatoon 2 players in a League Battle for Splat Zones were “forced” into a Turf War battle on a yet-to-be-released stage last night.

One of the players affected by it, _Luxin, blamed the event on the work of “hackers.”

The stage, called “New Albacore Hotel,” was first revealed (albeit without a name) during last week’s Splatoon 2 World Tournament, wherein support for content updates was announced to continue until December.

Thanks to the tweet and a YouTube upload done by Luxin, the incident allows players a better look at the upcoming map.

No word yet on when New Albacore Hotel will become available for Splatoon 2 players, but stay plugged in to Nintendo Wire for more news as it breaks!
