Splatoon 3 Release Date & Box Art Revealed

Splatoon 3 was first revealed in a Nintendo Direct in February of 2017. The franchise has been a big hit for Nintendo ever since its first installment in 2015. The last update we got for the Splatoon 3 was a few months ago with some new footage and a release window of Summer 2022. Today, Nintendo has given an official update on Splatoon 3 in the form of a box art reveal, a new gameplay clip, and an official release date.

Splatoon 3 will release on September 9, 2022, for Nintendo Switch.

Below you can find the official box art for Splatoon 3 as well as some additional info for the game from the press release.

In Splatoon 3, online 4-v-4 Turf War battles can create heated matches across a mix of new and returning stages, where teams of four face off to cover the most ground in their ink. Newly uncovered footage provides insight on one of these new stages, Eeltail Alley, along with a look at the stringer – a new bow-shaped weapon type that enables you to sling ink sideways and vertically.


In addition to frantic 4-v-4 multiplayer matches, Splatoon 3 also features a fresh single-player campaign and the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode. In the single-player story mode, you’ll join Agent 3 in a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of a mysterious place called Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze. When diving into Salmon Run, you’ll ink up with teammates to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses, some of which are colossal in size!
