The Splatocalypse has ended with Team Chaos’s victory, but it looks like Splatoon 2 players will still receive a few previously-unannounced pieces of content with the game’s final update: a Splatfest Tee Replica and a redesign of the Shellendorf Institute stage.

The news comes from Nintendo Everything, which reported on a translated tweet from the official Japanese Splatoon Twitter account.


All players will receive a Splatfest Tee Replica when the version 5.0 update goes live; this piece of gear will boast the Ability Doubler ability of actual Splatfest Tees and will also change its color depending on the player’s ink color during matches.

The Shellendorf Institute stage, meanwhile, will undergo temporary “renovations” from July 29th to July 31st, meaning it will be inaccessible in every mode.

It’s currently unknown what changes are planned to be made to the stage.
