Nintendo is once again promoting Splatoon 3 with another lengthy trailer, with the latest one coming in at seven minutes. For now it’s in Japanese only, but an English version will likely follow – which we’ll swap in here if and when it goes live.

The trailer introduces us to core elements of the game like the weapons and stages. Other aspects are covered including the different modes like single-player and Salmon Run.

Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere results

Nintendo has shared the final results of the Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere.

During the weekend, players were given an opportunity to try out the Switch exclusive ahead of next month’s launch. They could side with rock, paper, or scissors – three teams instead of the usual two that we’ve previously seen from the series. Fans were also treated to the debut of new Tricolor Turf War battles.


Splatoon 3 is the next big Switch game from Nintendo and is just a couple of weeks away. Most have likely made a decision as to whether they’ll be picking it up in September. However, there is also the Splatfest demo happening right now that gives players a bit of a preview of what they can expect from the final game.

Some have argued that Splatoon 3 doesn’t feel new enough, but many fans are very happy with how it’s been looking. What side of the fence do you sit on? Are you planning on buying Splatoon 3 next month? Let us know in the comments.


Splatoon 3 pre-order bonus

With Splatoon 3 set to arrive on Switch soon, now’s as good a time as any for us to publish our pre-order guide the game, which will contain information about many major retailer reservations as well as any bonuses that are announced.

As the name implies, Splatoon 3 is the third major entry in the series and the second title on Switch. Many elements are returning like Turf War and Salmon Run, though there’ll be new stages and bosses. Also, an entirely new story mode is planned where players can discover the secrets of Alterna, the Fuzzy Ooze, and how they connect to the mode’s theme, “Return of the Mammalians”.

Splatoon 3 file size

Nintendo has updated the file size for Splatoon 3, revealing that the final game will take up less space than initially expected.

When we first reported on the file size in April, the official eShop page had it down for 6.0GB. Now, however, it has dropped to 4.3GB. This will presumably be the final figure as we’re just a few weeks away from the game’s release.

Nintendo has released another couple of Switch My Way commercials. Between the two, Splatoon 3, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are highlighted.
