A new update for Splatoon is coming in August that will add new weapons, items, increase in level cap and better matchmaking.
The next Update will add a Splatoon Squad Battle mode allowing players to form custom team so they will be able to play with friends without having them being on opposite teams. Along with Squad Battle mode, there is now a Private Battle mode allowing customized map settings and team sizes.
The Update will be including two new weapon types: The Splating & The Slosher plus 30+ new items. The level cap has been increased from 20 to 50 and the ranking system has been upgrade to accommodate S & S+ Rank Players.
