A little later than expected…
Nintendo are back at it again. Having only announced a release date and shared a very impressive trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, they have now gone ahead and done the same with Splatoon 3. Releasing on September 9, 2022, by no means is it the earlier release some had hoped for, but with a brand-new trailer, highlighting new Turf War gameplay, there is plenty to fall in love with.
About Splatoon 3:
Enter the Splatlands, a sun-scorched desert inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings. Splatsville, the city of chaos, is the adrenaline-fueled heart of this dusty wasteland.
Even in this desolate environment, Turf War* reigns supreme and battles rage in new stages located in the surrounding wilds. Dynamic new moves help these fighters dodge attacks and cover more ground, along with a new bow-shaped weapon to sling ink.
Join Agent 3 in a fight against the unruly Octarians in story mode. Discover the secrets of Alterna, the Fuzzy Ooze, and how they connect to the mode’s theme, “Return of the Mammalians.”
Team up and fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses in the next iteration of Salmon Run*, a co-op mode with fresh new features.
