Nintendo has confirmed a release date for Splatoon 3 on Nintendo Switch, which will take the ink-based multiplayer action to the Splatlands.
This sun-scorched desert is inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings, and has Splatsville, the city of chaos, acting as “the adrenaline-fueled heart of this dusty wasteland.”
Four-vs-four Turf War matches continue to reign supreme and you can expect battles to take place in new and familiar stages that are located in Splatsville’s surrounding wilds.
The new Eeltail Alley stage is shown in an extended gameplay trailer, which also introduces the stringer – described as “a new bow-shaped weapon type that enables players to sling ink sideways and vertically.”
The game will also offer a single-player campaign where you “will join Agent 3 in a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze,” and the chance to team up with others in the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode.
Splatoon 3 will release exclusively at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 9th September 2022.
