Today’s Nintendo Direct ‘one last thing’ is Splatoon 3

Well, it makes sense why support ended for Splatoon 2!

In a very solemn but slick trailer, Nintendo showed us an Inkling riding a train from the completely barren Splatlands into another city, Splatsville, which will be a new hub.

Wait, Inkling?! Surprise! It’s Splatoon 3, and it’s hitting Switch in 2022.

You’d assume that Skyward Sword HD would have been the mic drop, but instead, Nintendo is going out in style with yet another return to the Splatoon world with a third game. No DLC, just a brand new game.
