Splatoon 3

A new Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation will air on August 25, 2022, Nintendo has announced.

Two games will be featured. Splatoon 3 will have two segments, including a deep-dive into the all-new single-player mode an overview of stages and strategies for the upcoming Splatfest World Premiere demo. We’ll also be seeing a third segment featuring the world premiere of live gameplay for Harvestella from Square Enix.

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.

Both are both adverts:

With the release of Splatoon 3 inching closer, Nintendo have uploaded a new video, this time detailing the new Tricolor Turf Wars. As the name would suggest, this mode features three teams battling at the same time.

The Splatoon 3 Direct aired this week and it was quite the doozy. In its 30-minute presentation, Nintendo shared a ton of details about the upcoming Switch exclusive.

We got a look at new battle stages, new maneuvers, and new weapons. The three main modes were also given a new look with the single-player Story Mode, “Return of the Mammalians”, Turf War, and Salmon Run. We also know have confirmation that Splatfests are back, but now with three teams instead of two plus Tricolor Turf War battles. We also got some new reveals with the Deep Cut trio, new amiibo, Tableturf Battle, and more. You can catch up on the full recap here.

Now that we’re a few days removed from the Splatoon 3 Direct, how did you feel about the presentation? What are your overall feelings on the game in general? Let us know in the comments.

Nintendo has sent out a handful of Japanese commercials for Splatoon 3. There are six adverts in total, and most of them focus on the game’s weapons.

As a refresher, here’s a brief overview of Splatoon 3 from Nintendo:

Splatoon 3 bonuses Splatoon 2 save data

Splatoon 3 has revealed that special bonuses can be obtained in the game if you have save data on your Switch system for Splatoon 2. This information was revealed by Nintendo on the official website.

The first bonus are three Gold Sheldon Licenses. These can be used to access favorite weapon types more quickly, regardless of player level.

Splatoon 3 Direct recap

The Splatoon 3 Direct just wrapped up, and Nintendo has passed along a recap announcement that details all of the information shared during the event. If you’d like to catch up on what you missed or read about everything in one place, the press release will come in handy.

Here’s the full announcement:

Nintendo will hold a Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere on Switch, the company has announced. The event is set to take place on August 27.

Splatfests are indeed back for Splatoon 3, and the upcoming download will let players experience Splatoon 3 for the first time. However, things work a bit differently. Deep Cut, the new hosts of the Splatsville news program, now consists of three members instead of two, so there will be three teams to choose for in Splatfests. For the theme in the demo, players can side with either rock, paper, or scissors.
