Splatoon 3" introduction video released!
On Monday, August 29, 2022, an introduction video of "Splatoon 3" was released!
The video summarizes all the new elements that have been announced so far, and is a must-see for both fans of the previous titles and beginners who are just starting out with Splatoon 3!
Let's check out the introduction video right away!
The stages where battles take place change with the passage of time, and there are many different types.
The key to victory lies in understanding the terrain and structure of the stage and how to get around with your friends!
Also, look out for the return of stages that appeared in past titles!
The main weapons in Splatoon 3 are...
11 types of weapons!
New to Splatoon 3 are the Stringer, which shoots ink in three directions like a bow, and the Wiper, which sends blades of ink flying with centrifugal force!
The Sub Weapon, which comes with the Main Weapon, will expand your tactical options!
The subweapons that appear in Splatoon 3 are...

Players who used the new sub-weapon "Line Marker" at the eve of the festival seemed to have different impressions of its strength and weakness, but what will it be like in the final version?
A special weapon that can be used by painting ink and accumulating gauges!

- Energy Stand
- Ultra Shot
- Triple Tornado

- Crab Tank
- Great Barrier

...and 15 more!
I got the impression that the "Energy Stand" was very popular at the eve of the festival.
Unique looking special weapons such as the "Shark Ride" and the "Crab Tank" also received high marks for their interesting looks and strength.
The "BANKARA MATCH" is a great way to test your skills!
The game features familiar rules such as "Gachi Area," in which players fight for a specific area, "Gachi Yagura," in which players push a Yagura into the opponent's territory, "Gachi Hoko Battle," in which players carry a special weapon, the Gachi Hoko, to the goal, and "Gachi Asari"," in which players collect clams and throw them into the goal. 😉 and other familiar rules to win the game!
At "Bankara Street," where trend-setting squid and octopi gather, you can buy new weapons, special-effects fuku, and shoes.
There is also a test firing range where you can try your hand at shooting while waiting to be matched, a My Locker where you can display your favorite items, and many other features!
There are also new features such as the Sanpo Information Center, where you can freely explore stages, and the Memory Player, which recreates some of your past matches!
Nawa Butler: The Battle of Battles
You can also play the card game "Jintori Taisen Nawa Butler" in the back alleys of "Bankara-gai"!
Build your own deck of over 150 cards and enjoy another Navabaribat Battle!
The "Hero Mode" can be challenged by entering the squid-like manhole in the "Bankara Street"!
Use a variety of weapons to face off against an octopus army covered in hair for some reason!
This is a one-player mode, so it's perfect for practicing your controls!
At a building on the outskirts of Bankara Street, you can challenge the "Salmon Run".
In this so-called PvE mode, players work together to collect salmon roe from the oncoming ferocious salmon!
Sometimes a huge salmonid may appear...?
Of course, there will be a "festival" in "Bankara Town"!
In addition to Navaribari battles, you can also get your festival on with the "Trikara Battle," a three-way battle of 2 vs. 4 vs. 2!
Splatoon 3 will be released on Nintendo Switch on September 9, 2022!
New items and stages will be added regularly for the first two years of the game's release via free updates!
