Splatoon 3

Ink up the Splatlands in the next Splatoon™ game!

Enter the Splatlands, a sun-scorched desert inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings. Splatsville, the city of chaos, is the adrenaline-fueled heart of this dusty wasteland.

Even in this desolate environment, Turf War reigns supreme and battles rage in new stages located in the surrounding wilds.

Dynamic new moves help these fighters dodge attacks and cover more ground, along with a new bow-shaped weapon to sling ink. Stay tuned for more information to be revealed, as the Splatoon 3 game is scheduled to release for the Nintendo Switch system in 2022.  

  • Ink it up with a new entry in the Splatoon series

  • Discover the Splatlands, a new sun-soaked region with trendsetting inhabitants

  • Experiment with new styles for Inklings and Octolings

  • 4v4 Turf Wars are back, with new stages, new manoeuvres, and new weapons
