The Piranha Pit map is expected to be one of the last major free updates for Splatoon, with smaller additions to come in 2016.

Speaking to Game Informer, Splatoon co-director Yusuke Amano said that Splatoon’s free DLC campaign will run until January 2016.

Nintendo has no plans to release paid DLC after this, and seem content with how the game has performed thus far.

Splatoon has sold 2.43 million units as of September 30 2015, cementing itself as one of the best selling games on the platform.
