Splatoon 3 Rides A Wave Of Salmon Run To Summer 2022 Release

We Finally Know When We Can Splat Again

Splatoon 3

Splatoon fans are waiting excitedly for Splatoon 3, the first title in the series in nearly five years. We now know it will be available this summer.

Splatoon 2 was well received but was more of an evolution of the first game than a revolution. With the Switch releasing shortly after the Wii U, there was a short turn around between the two games and only so much time to change things up.

One of the big additions to Splatoon 2 however was Salmon Run, a co-op horde mode that fans had a ton of fun with. Salmon Run is back in Splatoon 3, this time in what is called Next Wave. Next Wave looks to offer a wide variety of new weapons, foes, and lots of challenges for you and your friends to take on together. Check out the newest trailer below.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
