Nintendo’s hottest new game Splatoon is adding more features over time, with a new ranked battle mode titled ‘Tower Control.’

The mode will be available on July 1 at 7 PM PT, and tasks players with jumping onto a tower placed in the middle of the map and defending it as it moves towards a goal point placed in enemy territory.

“Once someone jumps onto the tower, it starts moving along a set path toward the other team’s goal,” Nintendo explains. “If the tower doesn’t arrive at their goal before time runs out, the team that’s moved it closes toward their opponent’s goal wins.”

“Ride the tower all the way into the other team’s goal though, and you’ll get a decisive knockout victory.”

Splatoon has been the summer selling point for the Wii U and it looks like Nintendo will continue to support it for the near future. For all other things Splatoon, keep it locked here at Gamespresso.

    They were showing the mode off on Twitch last night, and it is really cool. It’s not what you expect when you hear “tower defense” – it’s really mobile (you have to run ahead to defend it, or ride on it) because the tower keeps moving. I think this is going to be super fun. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻)
