Splatoon 3: Release Date, Setting, Story, Multiplayer, Gameplay, Trailer, Price, Leaks, News, Rumors and Everything You Need To Know


The final announcement during the Nintendo Direct was a massive one for players of the Switch.

Yes, Splatoon 3 will be coming soon; but we know very little as of now.

Here is all we know about the third instalment in the paint-soaked franchise.


Release Date

Splatoon 3 will be releasing sometime in 2022.

This is quite a ways away as of now, but the excitement within fans is already building!


"In this new game in the Splatoon series, you’ll leave Inkopolis behind and head to a new region: the Splatlands", a Nintendo press release reads.

"At its heart is a new city where battle-savvy Inklings and Octolings gather: Splatsville, also known as the “City of Chaos," so expect new areas to explore.



The game's central focus is its multiplayer component.

Splatoon offers some of the best multiplayer gameplay on the Switch and we are sure the third game is going to have even better gameplay.

Be sure to let us know what game modes you want to see added when it releases. 


New Features

"Splatoon 3 introduces various new features to the action-shooter series, including weapons such as the bow weapon, customisation options and new movement abilities to bring to the returning 4-v-4 Turf War matches," according to a Nintendo press release.


As of now, we do not know how much Splatoon 3 is going to cost.

We can assume it is going to run players around $59.99 USD.
