Nintendo has finally unveiled a concrete release date for Splatoon 3, and with the shooter out in just a few short months, series fans have plenty to look forward to not long from now. If you have a hankering for Splatoon though and haven’t yet gone through all of its previous offerings, you’ll soon have an excellent chance to do that.

Nintendo has announced that in preparation of Splatoon 3’s imminent release, it’s going to be giving the Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC. If you’re subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack and own the base game, you can download the expansion for free.

Splatoon 3, meanwhile, is not far away either. It launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on September 9, so stay tuned for more details on that in the lead-up to its release.
