We already know a lot about Splatoon 3, including the return of two classic Splatoon game modes, the 4v4 Turf War and the co-op Salmon Run. The game will also feature new stages set in the “Splatlands”–the wild areas that surround Inkopolis–as well as a story mode called “Return of the Mammalians.”
Splatoon 3 is slated to launch September 9 exclusively on Nintendo Switch. A special Splatoon 3-themed Nintendo Switch OLED will release one month earlier on August 27, alongside a Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller featuring a blue and yellow color scheme.
