Nintendo has announced that a new ranked battle mode called 'Tower Control' will be added to Splatoon on July 1st at 10PM EST.

Here are the details for this new mode.

"The objective of Tower Control is to ride a single floating tower into the enemy’s base. Both teams rush toward the tower, which is initially placed in the center of the map, and the tower will start moving automatically once a player climbs aboard. But beware: Riding the tower will increase the chances of being splatted, as every player has his or her target on the tower. Riding the tower alone is pretty tough, encouraging randomly selected teams of players to team up to accomplish their goal.

Just like in Ranked Battle and Turf War, players will be rewarded for working together as a team. Surrounding the tower and protecting the player riding the tower, using each stage’s features to gain an advantage, and supporting each other are the keys to victory."


Nintendo will be showing off this new mode today on its Twitch Channel at 6PM EST.

Great, let's see how it goes. It will be good to have a mode that prioritizes ranged weapons a little more, too many rollers in ranked/turf war.

Rollers are easy to deal with if you see them coming. I always love sneaking up on other players when playing with a roller or a brush.
