'Splatoon 2' Octo Expansion Story Details Revealed on Twitter

The Splatoon 2 story expansion was among the most important reveals during the March 8 Nintendo Direct, and now Nintendo has released new details and screenshots showing off the upcoming DLC.

According to a series of tweets on the Splatoon account, players will control Agent 8, who finds herself lost in the underground with her memories gone. Captn' Cuttlefish will join her on this journey to uncover the mysteries behind a large laboratory that is cut off from the outside world, where it feels as though "time itself has stopped."

The Octo Expansion may also reveal more information about Pearl and Marina's organization, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Splatoon 2 's Octo Expansion will have over 80 missions to complete. If you're having trouble completing a stage, you'll be able to request help from Pearl and Maina to skip through the stage and get back to the story.
