Big Run is back in Splatoon 3 for the second time in March. Kicking off on 4th March and ending on 6th March, the second Big Run will see Inklings and Octolings team up to defend the Inkblot Art Academy from another Salmonid invasion (via Nintendo UK Twitter).
Big Run #2 will kick off just a few days after Fresh Season 2023 kicks off, which in-turn drops justa day after Inkopolis and Wave 1 of the Expansion Pass. Plenty for you master splatters to get your ink all over, then.
This time you'll be protecting Inkbolt Art Academy — a returning stage from Splatoon 2. The first run saw Wahoo World serve as the battleground between Inklings, Octolings, and Salmonids, with Cohozuna being the final test of the Run.
Along with this announcement — straight from Grizzco Industries, we should say — Nintendo has given us a sneak peek at a brand new, and terrifying, King Salmonid. Called the 'Horroboros', it's decidedly massive and threatening and looks absolutely nothing like any other Salmonid we've seen. We'll have to give it everything we've got, then...
Taking place on the weekend of 4th to 6th March, you'll have a few days to get used to some of the new and adapted weapons joining the roster in Splatoon 3 with Fresh Season 2023. Plenty of time to make a splash, then.
Are you looking forward to the second Big Run next month? Let us know down below.
Ah yes, my favourite Dreamworks movie: How to Train Your Salmonid
I adore how this slinky dude looks and I can't wait for Big Run to come back as well (had a feeling they'd hold one at the start of every new season!). Intrigued as to how they're going to make Inkblot of all maps work in Salmon Run but Wahoo was a ton of fun so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt!
This is where the fun begins.
Called it, although I thought the map was more likely to be Hagglefish Market, but Inkblot might be fine. Horrorboros looks great and genuinely intimidating. Cohozuna’s just a giant Cohock while this monster is pretty much an Asian dragon. I think it was teased in a certain sticker reward of an ouroboros.
Now, it’d be nice to get more and better rewards than just a model, but I’m unfortunately not counting on it. Still, Splatoon 3 will definitely keep me busy the beginning of March!
@Fizza so we gotta take down an alpha without toothless, no problem.
Wait, how would Inkblot even be fun as a big run spot? Wahoo World worked better because there was so much room to operate a large scale big run, and I appreciated the added difficulty. That stage is huge, with very few linear pathways like Flounder Heights and Inkblot. It was far easier to get separated from your team, and have to fight back to reunite with them. As for Inkblot, I just don’t know if it will be that fun, unless they modify the stage. Sounds like the water from both sides of the stage will be potential salmon spawn points here. I will be attending, the last big run was definitely a nice change of pacing.
Nintendo has been doing a good job of keeping things “fresh” thus far with Splatoon 3. The new King Salmon Run looks pretty cool, should be another fun Salmon. I’m still a bit confused on what the point is to Wave 1 but Side Dish does look interesting. March should be fun start to the new season, hard to believe it’s been 3 months already since the last season update. I don’t think Nintendo was playing around about their strategy to continue to support its evergreen titles to close out Switch. That Switch 2 won’t be out until 2025 folks 😝
Not too excited about Big Run as the rewards are a bit underwhelming (already got the top 5% badge which is all I really cared about) but looking forward to finally getting a new King Salmonid.
Oh hellz yeah!
I’m curious as to how well Inkblot as a stage will work (Wahoo World was so fun to navigate in Salmon Run), but nonetheless I’m hyped for more BIG RUN BABY WOOOO
Will Horrorboros start appearing in Big Run or will he actually start appearing in regular Salmon Run with the new season? That image is at the Hydro Plant. I guess maybe we’ll get some practice before Big Run but I thought maybe it’d be more special if he debuted during it. Still, can’t believe there be dragons in Salmon Run now…
Since the Cohozuna is a Cohock. What is the Horroboros a King Salmonid version of? A Flipper-Flopper? A Snatcher?
