The corporation said on Monday that the presentation will be held on Wednesday, August 10 at 9 a.m. EDT/6 a.m. PDT and would last approximately 30 minutes. Like every Nintendo Direct, the Splatoon 3 Direct will debut as a pre-recorded video on Nintendo’s YouTube site.
The latest Nintendo Direct will be aired just over a month before the game’s scheduled September 9 launch. Nintendo may reveal new weaponry, areas, or even game types in the video, although it’s unknown exactly what they will reveal.
The paint-and-swim action that created the first Splatoon an overnight hit will return in Splatoon 3, along with enhanced editions of many of the key elements featured in Splatoon 2.
A new plot series called Return of the Mammalians and a new version of the co-op swarm mode called Salmon Run are available to players in addition to the game’s numerous gameplay modes.
The majority of the new fashion pieces in Splatoon 3 will allow users to customize their squid children before sending them into combat with other players or a horde of aquatic creatures.
The first game to receive its own special version Switch OLED model is Splatoon 3. It includes a customized dock and Joy-Con controls that all reflect the game’s graffiti-style graphics along with a spray of ink.
The left Joy-Con is dark blue fading into violet, and the right is yellow merging into green, while the dock itself is white with yellow splatter. There is a Splatoon 3-themed Nintendo Switch OLED model that will go on sale on August 26 for $359.99 if you simply cannot wait to get your eyes on Splatoon 3 in September.
Fortunately, Nintendo has you prepared. It doesn’t include the game, but it does have unique Joy-Con controllers in the game’s colors of yellow and blue, as well as Splatoon graphics covering everything but the display.
