Nintendo has announced that Splatoon 3 will release this September, as well as releasing a new extended gameplay trailer.

Splatoon 3 is one of the most highly anticipated Nintendo Switch games to release this year, and now we can look forward to its September 9th release. Unless it suffers a delay, of course. Also, be sure to click the link in the tweet below to watch the extended gameplay.

The aforementioned extended gameplay trailer takes a look at the Turf War match-type. In relation to Turf War, according to the official blurb:

In Splatoon 3, online 4-v-4 Turf War battles can create heated matches across a mix of new and returning stages, where teams of four face off to cover the most ground in their ink. Newly uncovered footage provides insight on one of these new stages, Eeltail Alley, along with a look at the stringer – a new bow-shaped weapon type that enables you to sling ink sideways and vertically. You can view all of this, plus a glimpse into some new gear and information, by visiting the Nintendo YouTube channel.

Furthermore, Nintendo also detailed Splatoon 3s other mode, the co-op Salmon Run.

In addition to frantic 4-v-4 multiplayer matches, Splatoon 3 also features a fresh single-player campaign and the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode. In the single-player story mode, you’ll join Agent 3 in a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of a mysterious place called Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze. When diving into Salmon Run, you’ll ink up with teammates to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses, some of which are colossal in size!

Oh, and the Splatoon 2 Octo DLC is now included in the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion at no extra cost to subscribers.

So, there you have it, Splatoon 3 will release for Nintendo Switch on September 9th this year. Are you looking forward to Splatoon 3? Let us know across our social media channels.
