Splatoon Producer Teases Additional Content; Playable Octolings Incomings?

Despite Nintendo’s earlier statement that all content updates for Splatoon will cease to roll out from January 2016, the game’s producer Hisashi Nogami has shared the possibility of otherwise.

At the end of Splatoon Koshien 2016 – a nationwide tournament in Japan – Hisashi Nogami took to the stage to thank all the fans who enabled the game to progress and succeed. Nogami also mentioned that he has been thinking about ways to thank the fans who made the event a huge success.

He went on to say that the developers are planning to roll out some additional content to the game, but need some time. Here is a rough translation of what Nogami said, courtesy of StreetsAhead:

We announced that updates to the game would end in January but I’m starting to wonder if we can’t organize a little something else.

The game’s most recent update came in the time for New Year and brought a new weapon called Octobrush Nouveanu for absolutely free. For the unannounced content, however, I am rooting for playable Octolings. What about you?
