The latest game in the series will be released on September 9 2022.

The game will be available to buy in stores for a physical copy. Additionally, buying on the Nintendo Switch store will give you Nintendo points which is great for discounts on further games.

New game modes


Many fans watching the new trailer feel like it's very similar to past games. However, this is all set to change with a tweet from the German Splatoon Twitter account.

The official Splatoon account for Germany added a tweet which hinted at new game modes being added. Translated to English, the tweet stated that new modes and more will be included in the new game.

Additionally, data miners have revealed modes for Splatoon 2 that didn't make the cut, so maybe Nintendo will add these ideas to the third game. Nobody can be certain until we get the announcement from Nintendo themselves.
