More Splatoon 3 features announced

Next entry in shooter series will include new story mode and online events

Posted on

Nintendo has announced new features that will be included with Splatoon 3.

Splatoon 3 will once again host a competition where players claim turf with splashes of color. The new Story Mode is an adventure to discover the secrets of Alterna, the Fuzzy Ooze, and how it connects to the title’s theme. As Agent 3, the latest recruit of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, players will battle with the Octarian Army, whose members are covered in hair for some reason.

In Turf War, new techniques have been introduced, like the Squid Surge where players can swim up walls in a single burst, and the Squid Roll, which makes it possible to jump out of ink while turning around. When the players’ character glows while executing the move, it also repels ink from opponents. The Salmon Run mode returns, which allows up to four players to work together and collect Power Eggs from the Salmonids advancing on them. Now, Salmon Run can be played at any time. In new Anarchy Battles, players compete for rankings in objective-based battles.

Additionally, recurring multiplayer events called Splatfests are returning. Splatfest World Premiere demo will take place on Aug. 27, and offers Nintendo Switch owners the chance to play in a free global Splatoon 3 event. Certain parts of the demo will already be playable on Aug. 25, but the main Splatfest event kicks off on Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. PT and runs until 9 p.m. PT.

After the game launches, a free in-game season catalog will be distributed every three months for two years. Additional weapons will also be added around the same time as each in-game catalog. In addition, X Battle and League Battle are planned for future updates. X Battle is unlocked after attaining an extremely high rank in Anarchy Battle. In League Battle, players can compete every two hours in teams based on their Anarchy Battle results. Large-scale paid DLC is also planned for the future.

Splatoon 3 is set to release on September 9, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
