Nintendo unveiled a first look at Splatoon 3 Return of the Mammalians, the splatter-shooter's single-player campaign mode, during the September 23 Nintendo Direct. There was, admittedly, not much information outside a shiny new trailer, but the Squid Research Lab, aka Nintendo's Splatoon marketing team, promised a deeper look at Splatoon 3 in the near future.
For now, here's how Nintendo described Splatoon 3 Return of the Mammalians:
The next game in this INK-redible series features new and returning stages in 4-v-4 battles, as well as new weapons never before seen in the Splatoon games. In the game’s single-player campaign, mammals might be returning … but what does this mean? Find out more when additional details about Splatoon 3, which is scheduled to release in 2022, are revealed in the future.
