It's time to get messy for a third time with Nintendo's popular paint / action hybrid game. Yes that does sound weird when you say it out loud

Nintendo Direct didn’t disappoint and while we weren’t exactly blessed with surprises we do get to look forward to the return of a few favorites. Splatoon was one of the main reasons to play on a Nintendo Switch for a good while and more news of the third installment of Nintendo’s, er, decorate ’em-up should be warmly received.

We got a decent look at the gameplay – not that we did;t know exactly what it would be like, but also a glance at some of the new bosses we will come up against. But what else do we know at the moment?

If you have two and a half minutes to spare and you are a big Splatoon fan, then you need to watch below. If you have never truly been convinced by firing paint everywhere, check it out, it might just change your mind.

Splatoon 3 release date

We first saw Splatoon 3 last year but now Nintendo has firmed up the release date (slightly) to Summer 2022. That’s still a bit on the vague side but we would imagine a July/August release is on the cards, possibly to tie in with school holidays and the like. We will update this page when things firm up a little.

It’s going to be a busy old year for Nintendo and the Switch with some huge games on the horizon. We expect Splatoon 3 to do pretty well, it has an established audience, a solid IP and it looks a lot of fun.
