One of Nintendo's most popular new IPs in recent years has been Splatoon. This unique shooter pits eight players against each other to cover a stage in ink while hunting down enemy fighters with various weapons and abilities. In the September 2021 Nintendo Direct, the team behind Splatoon 3 gave more details about the upcoming title.
Like previous Splatoon games, Splatoon 3 will feature a story mode in the base game. Titled, Splatoon 3: Return of the Mammalians focuses on the return of mammals to a world where only a few remain. With races of squids and octopuses taking up most of the world of Splatoon, it will be interesting to see how the story mode weaves these creatures into the world of Splatoon.
