Played Splatoon 3: Lots of fun, one concern

Nintendo Direct on Splatoon 3: All new information about the splashy color battles (1)

With Splatoon, Nintendo launched a new IP in 2015. The colorful one shooter quickly blossomed into hit, and Splatoon 2 was not long in coming. Fans and critics praised the smooth gameplay, great music and fun gameplay. Now we are about to release Splatoon 3, we could do that exclusive switch game even try it out live and in color at Nintendo. You can find out whether the color battle is just as much fun as its predecessors in our Preview!

First we played the classic one Turf War mode, in which the goal is to color the arena as colorfully as possible with our octopus ink. At the same time, we take out opponents so they can’t do that. So far so good, though something has to be new, right? Sure, we fought on fresh maps, which, at least at first glance, feel fairly balanced.
