Nintendo ended their Nintendo Direct presentation today by announcing that Splatoon 3 is in development for the Nintendo Switch and that it will launch in 2022.
The next entry in the series will introduce new weapons, customization options, and movement abilities as well as be set in a new city called Splatsville set in the Splatlands region. You can check out the first trailer below.
In this new game in the Splatoon series, you’ll leave Inkopolis behind and head to a new region: the Splatlands. Its heart is a new city where battle-savvy Inklings and Octolings gather: Splatsville, also known as the “City of Chaos.” Splatoon 3 introduces various features to the action-shooter series, including weapons such as the bow-weapon, customization options and movement abilities to bring to the returning four-versus-four Turf Wars matches. More information about the full-fledged sequel coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022 will be revealed in the future.
