Splatoon 3 will be getting a dedicated Nintendo Direct presentation this Wednesday, August 10.
The broadcast will be roughly 30 minutes long, and begins at 6am Pacific / 9am Eastern / 2pm UK / 11pm AEST. Nintendo hasn’t hinted at what will be inside, but you can guess at a healthy swathe of new gameplay, as well as new information about the game’s Campaign, PvP and PvE modes.

Splatoon 3 will be released om September 9, so this may be our last public look at the squid-based shooter before it arrives. Splatoon 3 was first announced last year, and brings back a familiar mix of competitive multiplayer (albeit with new weapons and special abilities), a returning co-op mode, Salmon Run, and a new single-player campaign titled “Return of the Mammalians”.
Splatoon 3 will be the first game to get its own special edition Switch OLED model, which comes with a unique dock and Joy-Con controllers that all feature the game’s graffiti-esque artwork alongside a splash of ink. The dock itself is white with a yellow splat while the left Joy-Con is navy blue blending into purple and the right is yellow blending into green.
