Splatoon 3: what is the release date?
Announced in 2021 during the Nintendo Direct in February, Splatoon 3 was then expected for 2022. It then specified its release during a new Nintendo Direct, that of February 2022 this time which saw the game expected for the third quarter of 2022. And it was in a trailer published today on Youtube by Nintendo that the publisher announced the release date of Splatoon 3.
This video of more than three minutes illustrates a match between two teams, which fight hard to conquer the field with a stroke of paint. And it is at the end of the match, won by the yellows, that the release date is simply looming on an artwork: Splatoon 3 will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on September 9th.
Splatoon 3: new cartridge for this third opus
And if the release date is the main information of this trailer, the latter displays a gameplay sequence that lets you know what players can expect when it comes out with regard to the multiplayer mode. We can’t help but think about what the Story mode will look like, already teased in September 2021. We knew then that the story will take place in Alterna, a region of Cité Clabousse. The narrative should focus on the origin of Inklings, the creatures made of ink at the heart of Splatoon, but also on mammals. In addition, the Salmon Run mode from Splatoon 2 will be back: the cooperative mode should integrate new bosses and new weapons.
A third episode which comes out five years after Splatoon 2, and therefore 07 years after the very first episode. And overall, the episodes of the saga have often been well received by the press. At JV, the first two episodes are respectively rated 17 and 16: we emphasize an original, funny and curiously addictive concept with rich content. Negative point ? The second episode only seems to be a 1.5 version. Rebelote for the 3rd episode? Answer as soon as it is released on Nintendo Switch on September 9th.
