Out of nowhere, Nintendo has announced that Splatoon 3 will be releasing on September 9th for the Nintendo Switch. On top of this, it released new gameplay from the Turf War mode, which sees two teams of four players attempting to paint the entire battlefield with ink and eliminate each other.
Many of the same mechanics and weapons from previous games make a return like the Charger, which once again functions as a powerful sniper rifle. You’ll also be traveling across the battlefield by swimming in the ink, though it’s possible to grapple to certain spots as well. One of the cooler new weapons appears to be a tank that functions a lot like Overwatch’s Wrecking Ball (though it’s temporary).
Along with Turf War, Splatoon 3 also features the return of co-op PvE mode Salmon Run (now known as Salmon Run: The Next Wave) and a single-player campaign that sees the Mammalians re-emerging. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay in the coming months.
