Those squid kids finally have a release date. Nintendo has announced that Splatoon 3 It’s coming to Nintendo Switch on September 9. The colorful shooter was previously set to release sometime this summer.
Like the previous entries in the series, Splatoon 3 is a four vs four shooter that is like a cross between paintball and Obligations where teams of humanoid creatures called Inklings and Octolings compete to paint a battlefield a particular color. The lack of violence and vibrant tone have helped set the series apart from the glut of other competitive shooters.. The new entry will feature the usual new weapons and scenarios along with an improved co-op experience and what appears to be a much deeper single player campaign.
With the recent delay of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to 2023, Splatoon 3 It will probably be one of Nintendo’s biggest Christmas releases. Nintendo also announced earlier this week that the sci-fi RPG xenoblade chronicles 3which had previously been planned for release in September, now it would come on july 29.
