Nintendo has announced that Splatoon 3 will launch on September 9 for Nintendo Switch.
The Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC will also be added to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership at no additional cost. This single-player expansion was previously a separate purchase.
Splatoon 3 was first announced last year and includes the fan-favorite co-op mode Salmon Run as well as a new single-player campaign called Return of the Mammalians.
