For its final announcement, today’s Nintendo Direct had a big surprise for all you squidkids out there. Yes, Splatoon is back with a brand new title on the way! Featuring many fresh elements in its brief introductory trailer, it also showed off a world that may be the aftermath of Splatoon 2’s last big Chaos vs. Order Splatfest.

 

 

Most interesting are two clear, new additions. These are a Little Buddy Salmonid that could be customized along with your Inkling or Octoling, as well as a brand new bow weapon. Other specials and aesthetic differences could also be spotted in the new gameplay, and some sweet familiar music cranked the series’ vibes up to eleven. 

 

 

 

 

Splatoon 3 will come sometime in 2022.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.

    Not gonna lie, while I did believe we were getting a Splatoon 3 in the future I did not expect it to be confirmed in this Direct. This was the only real highlight for me.
