Splatoon 3’s release date gets clearer with each new Nintendo Direct, and the game is now set to release on Switch this summer. Previously, all we had was “2022”, so this is a nice little update.
To accompany the tighter release window, Nintendo has confirmed that Splatoon 3 will have the Salmon Run co-op mode popularised by Splatoon 2. Traditionally, Salmon Run supports one to four players in a group effort to collect Power Eggs by splattering hordes of enemies. This time around, teams of inklings will take on a large salmon with a mohawk, cross chains and the scream of a tiny synthesised Godzilla.
All together, the new old mode is called Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Next Wave, presented in a variety of fonts and colours.
