    Also Arowana Mall was taken out of rotation due to glitches and exploits!

    Neat!
    How do they make such a show happen, though? I mean, it looks like real dancers, but the hands and heads are animatronics? Also, does the window in front of the dancers have anything to do with production?

    Hahh, that makes sense! At some point mocap must've been used, though since they move very naturally.

    Yellow was better than Red or Blue.

    Hey, this is new, right? I don't recall having the Power Level thing before. I think it's part of the latest updates.

    That power thing is definitely new. Is there any indication as to what it does or what it represents?

    New indeed. Seems to represent the strength of each voting option during a splatfest.

    Having never been into the cartoon in question, I honestly don't know which side to vote for. Finally I'm wishing the old Splatfest system was back; choosing the less popular side (to avoid fighting your own team and thus profiting from the x6 multiplier) was almost guaranteed to win, but now I'm not so sure.

    Also, trying to figure out the 'special depletion' rating for each weapon is kinda interesting. I like how they've bothered to give different variations of a weapon different depletion ratings (so Forge/Berry aren't automatically the same as the regular Splattershot Pro), so I'm looking forward to seeing how the metagame of Splatoon gets affected. I'm seeing a lot of Tempered Dynamo Rollers (seeker seems to make it more mobile) along with Wasabi and Berry users, but the other Sheldon's Picks weapons haven't shown up much for me. The Bamboozler has appeared, though I'm guessing it's high learning curve is a large part of the reason for that.

    Not sure if I'll pick up any of the new weapons, gonna keep testing. :)

    You might want to get them all just for a variety of weaponry, and for a sort of completion in terms of getting all of the weapons. It's nice to have options at hand, as opposed to having to save up money for them all.
