Splatoon 3 will splat its way onto Nintendo Switch in 2022

During Nintendo’s latest Direct stream, the video game giant announced that Splatoon 3 will be released sometime next year. Little else was said, but a trailer was shown, and it gave us a look at some new content and mechanics.

Although the multiplayer focused paint shooter looks to play similarly to its two predecessors, its announcement trailer does provide us with a glimpse at a new desert locale. Here’s what Nintendo had to say about that:

In the wake of chaos, enter the sun scorched Splatlands and the new city, Splatsville, inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings. New weapons, moves, and more await, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates in the future.

We’ll let you know when we learn anything more about Splatoon 3, the newly announced Nintendo Switch exclusive.
