Don’t miss the limited-time demo event this Saturday! Also, Watch a More In-Depth Splatoon 3 Video – News
The Splatoon™ 3 The game releases September 9, so it’s time to dive into an ocean of new information (or, at least, a decent-sized bay/lagoon).
Let’s start first with Nintendo Treehouse: Live | August 2022 then swim to Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere demo inkfo, uh, info.
Nintendo Treehouse: Live | August 2022
Contrary to popular belief, the Nintendo Treehouse is NOT a wooden hut in which Donkey Kong hides his stash of bananas. Instead, it’s a collection of nice people from Nintendo of America who have the inside scoop on upcoming games!
Please watch the video for a 20,000 league deep dive in Splaton 3including story mode, weapons, and two of the upcoming stages that will be featured in the Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere demo (more on that later).
Nintendo Treehouse: Live | August 2022 also featured an upcoming life simulation JRPG from Square-Enix called HARVEST. You can also catch this specific segment in a separate article, so keep your eyes peeled for your nintendo switch™ News Feed!
Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere demo event
You want to taste Splaton 3 chaos before the game’s release? From now on, Nintendo Switch Online members can access Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere demo. This is the perfect place for newcomers as you can also play the game’s tutorial and take a scenic drive through Splatsville.
Of course, the main event will take place on Saturday, August 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT. Yes, that’s when Splatfest is happening!
Well, that’s cool… what is a Splatfest?
Oh yeah, we should probably explain that. A Splatfest is a big deal for Inklings and Octolings everywhere. Basically, you will join one of three causes and try to win in-game battles to uphold your ideals. Splatoon and Splatoon™ 2 players are probably used to joining one of the two camps, but yes…Splaton 3 has THREE sides. Talk about your triple threat!
After choosing your destiny, you will participate in Splatfest battles. The goal of a match is to ink as many scenes as possible. The more games your team wins, the closer you get to a resounding victory.
The burning theme of this Splatfest is one of the oldest questions in human history*. Which is better: rock, paper or scissors?
Yes, we only ask the hard questions here! Do you rock with rocks? Are you paper buddies? Or do you see yourself as a scissors super believer? Make your voice heard in the form of Splatfest!
So how does it work with three teams?
Yeah, let’s explain that one. This event is actually split into two distinct parts:
From 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PT, teams will compete one team at a time (just like previous games in the series).
From 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT, Tricolor Turf War battles become available, which are 4v2v2. Yes, this means that three teams will compete at the same time!
Sounds good, but what if I’m not a Nintendo Switch Online member?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Everyone who grabs the demo will also receive a code redeemable for a free 7-day trial membership** (the code*** will be sent to the email address associated with your Nintendo Account).
No, that’s about it. If you want to download the Splatoon 3: Splatfest World Premiere demo and get started with the tutorial, please use the link below. Don’t miss the boat when it comes to Splatfest itself – we’ll see you on August 27 between 9am and 9pm PT.
* Okay, not really. But hey, it’s at least in the top 60% of the oldest questions! Maybe!
