The year 2020 has been difficult to survive for many. Those sitting at homes with nowhere to go have been eagerly waiting for sequels of their favorite games and movies. Besides games, many have been waiting for their favorite movies/shows to release. And here, we have exciting news for players of Splatoon 3. The much-awaited shooter game is underway and will be released by Nintendo soon.
Is there anyone out there who isn’t yet clear about the concept of Splatoon? Here’s a summary for you. Nintendo created a third-person shooter video game and named it Splatoon. It gained popularity among gamers and later emerged as a famous series on the virtual platform.
The first series of the game was released in 2015, followed by the second one in July 2017. It has a great soundtrack, gameplay, and graphic styling. The makers have earned huge profits from the first two series, selling more than 15 million copies. In the third installment, the makers have tried to retain the original features with new stuff and novel approaches. Let’s explore some more details about the shooting game and its latest part releasing soon.
Three years after the release of the second season of Splatoon, the next part’s news is out now. Fans have been waiting for some information or announcement for a long. Although 2020 has come to an end, there is nothing official from Nintendo about the release or premiere date of Splatoon 3. However, the third part is expected to come out soon, and if speculations are to be believed, it will be released before 2021.
The Splatoon game is created with fictional characters, also known as Inklings. These are anthropomorphic squid that can transform between humanoid and cephalopod shapes. They can even swim through some colorful inks that are poured out on several surfaces using numerous paint-based weapons. This part of the game features a one-player, two-player, and multiplayer modes.
In the previous version, Splatoon 2 was introduced with varied user-interface and great graphics. That was a well-refined version of the first part to engage and attract more players. Salmon Run was a new character introduced in the second part.
For splatoon 3, the makers have included some very good splatfests that are gaming festivals and events organized every month. Splatfests are a tribute to the competitive spirit of the players. Being a prominent feature in the Splatoon series, players already love it a lot.
While the exact release date isn’t out yet, the plot of Splatoon 3 is revealed. The game will be about the octo-advancement and expedition of two cousins, Marie and Callie. It is reported to contain advanced gaming graphics and a finer user-friendly interface.
This one’s going to be a significant update as the gameplay of Splatoon 3 would be quite different from the previous ones. While the squid sisters’ characters would be the same, the makers have announced that the character Marina will be excluded. We might see better gameplay in the single-player mode. Having new and improved weapons, players, and the battle will make it more exciting, and a new 3D feature will enrich the gaming experience.
Nintendo hasn’t released any trailer nor any teaser for Splatoon 3, but the former is expected to release soon. Since Spaltoon 3 was scheduled to be released by the mid-2020, a trailer would have arrived long ago. But, after the pandemic halted its production, the new expected launch date for the trailer is reported to be around the end of 2020. However, an official confirmation is still awaited.
