There's a lot to take in from the latest Splatoon 3 Direct presentation - with new characters, areas and lore to absorb. One other thing existing Splatoon 2 players can also look forward are save data bonuses.
According to Nintendo's webpage, save data from Splatoon 2 will score you special in-game rewards and benefits.
This includes three Gold Sheldon Licenses that you can exchange for main weapons (regardless of player level), the ability to join Anarchy Battles from the beginning of the game (regardless of level), starting the game with a higher rank (depending on your rank in Splatoon 2) and also getting matched with players of similar skill levels from Splatoon 2.
You'll be able to transfer save data from Splatoon 2 just once per Nintendo account when you launch Splatoon 3. Save data from Splatoon 2 will need to be on the same system and user account.
Are you glad to hear returning players will be rewarded with some extra unlocks and benefits? Leave your thoughts down below.
