We may have not gotten an exact release date for Splatoon 3 in today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, but it was confirmed that Salmon Run, Splatoon 2’s co-op multiplayer mode, will be returning for the third installment.

The new version of this mode will officially be called Salmon Run: Next Wave, and Splatoon 3 will be released this summer.

Nintendo revealed Splatoon 3 almost exactly a year ago, and revealed more gameplay details a few months later. The sequel will feature a single-player campaign called “Return of the Mammalians”, as well as the return of its classic Turf War multiplayer mode.

Splatoon 2 was well received; our review awarded it a score of 8.3, and it has a secure place on our best Nintendo Switch games list.
