Trains, deserts, and new worlds to get inked on
Arguably Nintendo’s biggest new franchise is Splatoon, selling bucketloads in Japan and doing terrific everywhere else. Splatoon 2 launched within the Switch’s first few months, and so now, nearly 4 years later, it’s time for a sequel. Splatoon 3 will bring the Inklings (and Octolings) to the Splatlands, a post-apocalyptic land with Splatsville as its city center. The desert world is dry, full of ruins and technology, and strange new weapons — like a new splat-bow.
Oh, and now we have chicken-fish salmonid pets.
Splatoon 3 will hit the Nintendo Switch in 2022.
Here’s Nintendo’s info:
Enter the Splatlands, a sun-scorched desert inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings. Splatsville, the city of chaos, is the adrenaline-fueled heart of this dusty wasteland.
Even in this desolate environment, Turf War* reigns supreme and battles rage in new stages located in the surrounding wilds.
Dynamic new moves help these fighters dodge attacks and cover more ground, along with a new bow-shaped weapon to sling ink. Stay tuned for more information to be revealed, as the Splatoon 3 game is scheduled to release for the Nintendo Switch™ system in 2022.
