Splatoon 3

Next year Nintendo is jumping "back into the ink" with the release of Splatoon 3. Yes, in case you missed it, the third entry in the insanely popular squid shooter series is currently in development.

If you've been wondering how progress has been going on the latest entry, we've got another update, well...kind of. It's a quick note over on social media from Nintendo - wishing all the Inklings (and Octolings) out there a happy holiday from the Splatoon 3 team. So, we guess progress is chugging along nicely.

When Splatoon 3 does finally splash onto the Nintendo Switch, it'll introduce fans to the new 'Splatlands' region and 'Splatsville' (the new city). The third game will also introduce new weapons, customisation options and power-ups.

Will you be returning to the world of Splatoon when the third game arrives on Switch next year? Tell us in the comments below.
