New Splatoon Stages Discovered In Source Code

Splatoon

Two new Splatoon stages have been uncovered in the game’s source code. Twitter user DrLilRobot leaked screenshots of the two unreleased maps, which are called Jyoheki and Kaisou. Jyoheki, or Flounder Heights, takes place in what appears to be an apartment complex. Kaisou, or Hammerhead Bridge, takes place in a bridge that’s still under construction.

These stages are obviously not yet official and Nintendo hasn’t given any word on their release or on these leaks. We do know that at least Flounder Heights is real, since it was shown in an early ad for the game in Japan (see below). Nintendo posted the commercial to Youtube just before the release of the 2.0.0 update, so they’re not keeping this stage a secret.Splatoon stage flounder heights

Some players have noted the fountain in the top right of the map that appears to have five squid kids standing around it. It’s not clear what that means, if it has any meaning at all.

Both of these new maps are in keeping with Splatoon’s urban style. It’s nice to see settings that are typically grey and boring completely bombarded with colour.

Around the same time, another player by the name of Nikki has managed to play as an Octoling. In case you’re not familiar with Splatoon, the Octolings are the enemies that you’ll play against in the story mode. The players are the Inklings (squids) and the bad guys are the Octolings (octopi) – make sense? A video on the player’s Youtube channel, NWPlayer123, shows a private match between a squid kid and an Octoling. Apparently, all this self-proclaimed hacker had to do was edit the save file for the game. Changing the player ID to 2 made the avatar into a female Octoling. (0 is for female Inkling and 1 is for male Inkling. 3, which would presumably be male Octoling, freezes the game.)

This user also revealed a character model they found for the Octolings which showed facial expressions to match those of the Inklings. It all indicates that Octolings may become playable in future updates, or perhaps that Octolings were planned to be playable at some stage in Splatoon’s development. Either way, it’s interesting.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
