Splatoon has been getting a constant and healthy stream of DLC since its release, and things don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. For instance, just three days ago, two new weapons were released, and now a new game mode for ranked matches will be launching tomorrow, July 1st.
The game mode is called Tower Control, and the focus is to take over a single, floating tower and ride it into the enemy’s base. It seems as though it will essentially play like a more intense version of capture the flag where, instead of grabbing the flag and running back to your base, you are controlling the tower and riding it into enemy-controlled territory.
For your viewing pleasure, the video above shows off some Japanese gameplay. However, Nintendo will also be hosting a special Twitch stream called “Treehouse: Live with Splatoon Tower Control” today at 3:00 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET. To watch it, you can simply follow this

Personally, I think that the new mode looks super intense. What are your thoughts? Are you excited for some more variety? Let us know in the comment section below!
