I'm going to speculate that this game will be more substantially different from Splatoon 2 than Splatoon 2 was from 1.

Whether that means it has a more substantial (open world....) single player or a highly multiplayer "raid" mode or an emphasis on a battle royale mode or all of those things (or things no-one has contemplated yet) I have no idea - I just think that we'll find out closer to the time that this is a lot more than just a new number on the box.

2. Why are people fussy if it's one game per console or not? People have been begging for a mario kart 9 and odyssey 2, what makes it different, especially considering mario kart has online as well which would split that playerbase if it ever were to happen.

The Switch doesn't really have it's own Mario Kart at the moment, and the original Wii U release was almost 7 years ago at this point while Splatoon 2 release 3 and a half years ago, so I can definitely see why more people would have preferred a new Mario Kart. If the Nintendo released Mario Kart 9 in 2017 instead of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I doubt as many people would be begging for a new Mario Kart. I don't think Mario Kart can quite be compared to Splatoon either, since a major draw Mario Kart is the local multiplayer which you can't do in Splatoon.

To be honest I can understand people being a little disappointed with a sequel to online games like this on the same console. I enjoy Smash Bros, but I wouldn't be super hyped if they announced a new one for 2023 (5 years after the game launched). And yes, Smash is still getting updated with new characters so they aren't quite comparable, but even if we pretend it didn't get any fighter pass I wouldn't be hyped for a second release on the same console.

I personally didn't mind the announcement. The single player mode seems like it could be interesting, which would be enough to warrant the purchase in my opinion. I just hope there's enough differences in the online battles to set it apart from Splatoon 2.

@Cynas it's perfectly fine to be disappointed in the announcement, and wanting a Mario Kart or something else over Splatoon. I probably would have been more hyped for Mario Kart myself. My problem is the justifications people are giving it, saying x franchise outright deserves a game over Splatoon because I said so. People are gatekeeping franchises now.

@WoomyNNYes yeah now that I think about it, what was shown in the trailer was way too big to be the tower in Splatoon. Its probably the tokyo tower.

Also, for splatoon 1 fans, it looks like the inkzooka and killer wail are coming back.

@GilbertXI Smallfry could potentially do something with subweapons and specials.

@BenAV They would've decided on whether or not to make Mario Kart 9 several years ago, before they knew that it would keep selling. That probably didn't factor into their decision.

@Northwind Pun not intended, I actually didn't pick up on it.

@Bolt_Strike It's Mario Kart. They probably had a pretty good idea that it'd keep selling.

What I'd really like to know is if we'll be seeing larger and more open maps. I think that's the biggest thing they can do to differentiate this game from 2. It would fit the game's premise of being a city of chaos amidst a barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland to have things like a battle royale mode across a large map fighting each other for survival or more open world single player maps where you make use of your ink swimming abilities to navigate and explore large open spaces. The map they showed in the trailer is unfortunately about the same size as the maps from the previous games, but maybe they're hiding larger ones for a later reveal?

This really was a pleasant surprise! One thing I'm really hoping for is split-screen for local co-op. I was kinda surprised that Splatoon 2 didn't have it, I would've played that game with my brothers constantly if I had the option!

Ugh...I just want to play Xenoblade 3 :(

I'm going to make a very bold prediction about Splatoon 3. I think it'll adopt the "Halo Infinite" monetization model, basically the game is $60 but only comes with a larger scale single player campaign (it no longer being essentially a tutorial for multiplayer). The multiplayer ends up being free to play and goes the battle pass route.

I keep seeing people making predications/analogies about how Splatoon is gonna be using Overwatch, Halo, Monster Hunter, Mario Kart, Smash etc's model. I think Ninty is too in it's own head space to do anything that convoluted besides just a new Splatoon game.

@Northwind Two posts above yours literally says it's gonna adopt Halo's model.

@Northwind Plenty of different games use the same model, Halo Infinite is just the game that comes to mind regarding that model.

@Northwind I think you can't see the forest for the trees by focusing on my wording rather than point. The point was people are trying to force a direct comparison with what other franchises do to uderstand Splatoon 3 however Ninty does what Ninty do often without rhyme or reason so what [insert franchise] does doesn't has a meaning to what Splatoon does.

I just had a thought.
You would think if the rumoured switch pro was releasing this year, you'd think Nintendo would save games like Splatoon 3 to release with a Switch Pro. So does this mean the Switch pro isn't on the cards anytime soon or am I just being stupid?

SwitchGamer

SwitchGamer

I'm not against the release of Splatoon, I actually think it will be great, but you'd think you'd save a new version of a big game to release with a new console surely

@Northwind Actually I deleted it before you responded as I didn't feel like carrying on with the conversation direction and you must have been replying to me when I deleted it. Sorry if you felt like I was trying to "gotcha" you.

@Bolt_Strike Larger maps in multiplayer don't make any sense unless they do a 100 player battle royale or something like that (or way more than 8 players at least).

I don't know if the game can handle that though, since I wouldn't be surprised if the ink meshing takes up a ton of computing resources. More players and more ink may drastically reduce performance.

@SwitchGamer Naw man, they just port Splatoon 3 HD to the Switch 2 in 2024.
