Hi! First of all I have to apologize for not sending out any issues in the last two weeks. Unfortunately I had some technical issues preventing me from sending, but now everything is back to normal. Let's not waste any more time and dive into this weeks news. 🙂
This week's pipes
Splatoon 3 Drizzle Season announced
The new season starting on the 1st of September 2023 has been announced. It also marks the first anniversary of Splatoon 3. The update is adding a lot of new stuff, including two new maps, two new weapons, a couple of alternate weapon kits, new equipment (including new slopsuits) and more!

Oh and there are also new Amiibos coming on the 17th of November!
Mario is getting a new voice actor
Charles Martinet will stop lending his voice to Mario and others Nintendo characters by the end of this year. Apparently this was a decision made amicable between him and Nintendo. He is going to be promoted to the newly created role of "Mario Ambassador", in which he will still promote Mario on events around the world. There has been a special video message announced aswell which will be released at a later date.
