Splatoon 3 – New gameplay trailer, new map, new abilities and release date revealed!
Splatoon fans rejoice, as the latest trailer from Nintendo has revealed that one of the system’s most beloved exclusive franchises is splatting its way back for a third instalment on the 9th of September 2022.
The new trailer features gameplay from a multiplayer match on a new map but also highlights new power-up weapons for the players. It’s awesome to see the new features in actual real-time gameplay. Our favourite new power-up looks like it will be the grappling hook’s ability to whizz around, over and behind enemies.
Soaking your friends and enemies with paint has never looked like so much fun! With this hugely enjoyable 3rd person splash ’em up, you are literally going to paint the town red!
“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.”
