It’s been revealed that Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch will have increased map rotation. The original game rotated maps every four hours, but Splatoon 2 will rotate the maps at two hour intervals.
Splatoon 2 Producer has spoken to EDGE about the fact that map rotation is important due to the fact that weapons are more effective on certain maps.
The full quote is below:
“We feel that part of the gameplay is actually selecting which weapons would be best for that combination of two maps. In Splatoon 2, the maps rotate every two hours, so it’ll be a much faster cycle than the previous game.”
