DLC Is Not Appearing (Splatoon 2)


  • Downloadable content that has been purchased or redeemed for Splatoon 2 isn’t appearing in the game.


  • DLC can be only be used with versions of Splatoon 2 that are intended for the same region where the DLC was purchased. (For example, DLC purchased with an Australian Nintendo Account will not work with a Japanese version of the game.)

Complete these Steps:

  1. Verify whether the missing DLC is from the Octo Expansion (purchased from Nintendo eShop) or the download code that was distributed to Nintendo Switch Online members.
