Splatoon Japan Includes “SOS” in New Year’s Tweet

Could Nintendo be hinting at something Splatoon-related this year?

Though series producer Hisashi Nogami was pretty adamant about Splatoon 3 not being in development, something seems to be going on with the series. In a new tweet, the official Japan account for Splatoon wished fans a happy 2020. However, the letters “SOS” are seen in the water.

Morse code for “Save Our Souls” and originally used for maritime matters, the SOS here could be hinting at something. Of course, it could be nothing at all as well. And even if the development team does have a tease in the works, it’s hard to see it being a sequel to Splatoon. An expansion to Splatoon 2, perhaps, but a full-fledged sequel?

It would be interesting to see what the project is. After all, major content updates and events have ceased for Splatoon 2 and it’s receiving weapon and balance changes only. The next patch, version 5.1.0, is set to arrive next week and will tune weapons like the Splattershot and Luna Blaster. We’ll hopefully see if there’s any significance to this tweet in the coming months.
