Splatoon 3 also features a single-player campaign and the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode. Join Agent 3 in the single-player story mode for a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of a mysterious place called Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze. When diving into Salmon Run, players can ink up with teammates** to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses, some of which are colossal in size.
The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition console features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage***, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode.
