Will Nintendo finally communicate on Splatoon 3? The Japanese giant has unveiled a series of new images of its upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive.
Put aside pending the launch of Kirby and the Forgotten World, Splatoon 3 will soon return to the front of the stage. While waiting for a more flamboyant communication, Nintendo unveils new images of the game.
A slew of new Splatoon 3 screenshots
No, no, Nintendo is not forgetting Splatoon 3. Kirby and the Forgotten World now out and The Legend of Zelda BOTW 2 pushed back, the Japanese publisher could soon focus its communication around its next big cartridge. Somewhat neglected, the colorful shooter was briefly shown during the Nintendo Direct in February to present one of its game modes and confirm its release for the summer of 2022.
In the absence of new information or a dedicated presentation, Big N has updated the game’s official Japanese site in the greatest of silences. No new crisp details on the game mechanics on the program, but a handful of new images. The opportunity to discover some environments and characters in action.
A reminder of the basic mechanics
In the meantime, the official Splatoon 3 official Twitter account has listed all of the basic mechanics at Nintendo’s wacky TPS. The editor recalls for example that an Inkling is a creature capable of transforming from humanoid to squid at will. In its traditional form, this being can wield weapons and equipment, while it can dive into pools, reload, and swim while in mollusk. The object of the game remains the same, to use the colored ink to splatter his opponents and cover the ground to bring advantages to his team.
Move faster than a humanoid by swimming through your ink
Reload your gun while it’s submerged in your ink
Hide/ambush opponents by dipping in your ink
Quickly swim over walls and gain the advantage
Nothing new on the horizon for the most seasoned Splatoon players. However, communication around the game could intensify in the coming weeks with a Nintendo Direct at stake.
