Nintendo’s popular ink-based shooter game, Splatoon 3, has just dropped an exciting new season of content for players to enjoy. Sizzle Season 2023 is now available for all Splatoon 3 players with an active Nintendo Switch Online membership. This season brings a range of thrilling additions, including new stages, weapons, challenges, and an array of fashionable gear. In this article, we will delve into the details of Sizzle Season 2023, highlighting the key features that players can look forward to.
Sizzle Season 2023: What’s New?
Newly Added Stages
Sizzle Season 2023 introduces two exciting new stages for players to explore. The first is Barnacle & Dime, a thrilling battle stage that provides a fresh and challenging environment. Additionally, the beloved Humpback Pump Track from Splatoon 2 makes a return, allowing fans to revisit and relive their favorite battles. And in Salmon Run, players can now dive into the Jammin’ Salmon Junction stage, bringing even more excitement to cooperative gameplay.
To amp up the ink-splattering action, Sizzle Season 2023 introduces two new weapons. The S-BLAST ’92 is an explosive weapon that can create chaos on the battlefield, while the Painbrush (yes, not a typo!) offers a heavy-handed approach, making a significant impact in matches. These new weapons provide players with fresh strategies and playstyles to master.
The highlight of Sizzle Season 2023 is the new Challenge mode, featuring limited-time events with special rules and unique gameplay experiences. These challenges add a spicy twist to the traditional Turf War and Anarchy Battles, offering players the chance to engage in chaotic matches. From fog-covered stages to jumping boosts for everyone, or even the hilarity of multiple Trizookas, each challenge presents an opportunity for thrilling and absurd encounters. It’s important to note that your performance in Challenges won’t affect your Rank Points in the standard Anarchy Battle mode. Winning five battles within a Challenge also rewards players with an in-game Shell-Out Token as a bonus.
New Season Challenge
To celebrate the launch of Sizzle Season 2023, a special New Season Challenge will take place during three designated play windows. Players can showcase their skills and compete against others in intense matches. The play windows are as follows:
- June 2nd, 9-11 p.m. PT
- June 3rd, 5-7 a.m. PT
- June 3rd, 1-3 p.m. PT
Fresh Fashion and Items
Throughout Sizzle Season 2023, players can explore the shops in Splatsville and Inkopolis (in the Splatoon 3 Expansion Pack*) to find the latest fashion trends and items. Equipping yourself with stylish gear is not only a way to stand out but also to avoid being roasted by your fellow players. Stay on top of the latest fashion trends and ensure you’re ready for the intense battles ahead.
Sizzle Season 2023 in Splatoon 3 brings an array of thrilling content for players to dive into. With new stages, weapons, challenges, and fashionable gear, the season promises an exciting and heated experience.
