Splatoon 3 is around the corner. The playful, shooter will hit Nintendo’s Switch on September 9, and is available for pre-order through Nintendo’s digital store. To give fans a taste of what’s to come, Nintendo also provided a short video preview of some Turf War gameplay.
Turf War, which requires a Nintendo Switch online membership, lets players face off against each other in teams of four as they try to cover a designated battleground in a single color of paint. Compared to other shooters, Splatoon is a nice twist on the genre, doing away with IRL automatic weapons and replacing them with paint guns, turning games into a messy, vibrant work of art.
Year of the Switch? — At the beginning of this year, Nintendo was expected to have a huge 2022 with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild 2 slated to drop this Spring. While its most anticipated title of 2022 ended up getting delayed, an official release date for Splatoon should help bolster things.
