The new Inkopolis DLC for Splatoon 3 is now available via Update v3.0.0. This DLC includes the familiar Inkopolis Square from the original game but with noticeable changes.

Inkopolis now has new shopkeepers: Shelly, Donny, and Fred Crumbs. Players who want to get the best shoes in town can visit Fred Crumbs in his shop aptly named Shrimp Kicks. Shelly and Donny, found in their store called Ammo Knights, can hook players up with some new weapons. Players might mistake them for Sheldon but they are cuter and more baby-like.

Update v3.0.0 also includes the new Pool Feature. This allows players to send and receive notifications with others in the same pool.


  • Players who have purchased the Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass – Inkopolis & Side Order DLC can now travel between Inkopolis and Splatsville using the train station in the square.
  • Inkopolis has the same shops and features as Splatsville.
  • The shops in Inkopolis also have the same lineup of products as Splatsville. If you buy something in one location, it will be sold out for the day in both locations.
  • On March 1, 2023, data relating to Fresh Season 2023 will be added to the game. This includes:
    • A new catalog, including new gear, titles, Splashtags, decorations, stickers, and emotes.
    • A new gear brand, Z+F.
    • About 126 new items added to store product lineups.
    • 2 new battle stages: Um'ami Ruins and Manta Maria.
    • 2 new special weapons: Kraken Royale and Super Chump.
    • 12 new sets of existing main weapons paired with different sub and special weapons.
    • 23 new Tableturf Battle cards.
    • Prizes that can be obtained by trading fish scales at Grizzco.
  • You can earn more Catalog Points than usual during the week before the end of the season thanks to a special Closeout Bonus.
  • The Pool feature allows players to send and receive notifications with other players in the same Pool.
    • Players can enter a phrase to join a Pool by opening the Lobby menu, selecting the Notifications tab, and pressing the + Button.
    • For example, if you enter “Turf War Fans,” you’ll be able to send and receive notifications with players who have also entered “Turf War Fans,” and you will be able to join or drop in on each other’s games using notifications.
    • While there isn’t a limit on how many people can join the same Pool, there may be cases in which notifications won’t be sent to all members if a large number of players are connected to the same Pool simultaneously.
    • When you receive an invitation to play or a “Fresh!” notification, it will be displayed on the screen.

Splatoon Inkopolis DLC is available for those who purchase the Inkopolis/Side Order Expansion Pass priced at $24.99.
