Nintendo confirmed that all basic weapons from previous Splatoon games are returning in Splatoon 3! Splatoon 3 looks to have the biggest arsenal of weapons in the entire series as new weapons are introduced.
Read up on an overview of the game below:
Across Splatsville and the sun-scorched Splatlands desert of the Splatoon 3 game, you’ll engage in ink-soaked battles with other Inklings and Octolings, and discover features, weapons and (of course) the trendiest gear this side of the sun. If you’re game to witness this chaos unfold firsthand, then get ready to dive into the ink when the game launches for the Nintendo Switch system on Sept. 9.
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.
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!
Lastly, Splatoon 3 releases on September 9th for Switch worldwide. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
