The "Summer Wishes" tweet contained a piece of Splatoon 3 that features 5 Inklings in the desert, with the game's bow front and center.

Before this, players got a quick peek at Splatoon 3 gameplay with the Switch OLED announcement video.

The gameplay Nintendo showed off?

Bow usage!

The first Splatoon 3 trailer?

The bow is resting behind the Inkling as player creation is shown off.

Some of them can even be seen in the background of clips and screenshots featuring the new bow.

Will there be more melee weapons?

No.

Will there be a robust single-player mode?

Nope.
