    (Deep Breath): AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! SPLATOON 3 IS COMING

    th


    Ok now that this that is out of the way let us take a closer look at some of the detail revealed in this short clip

    New Weapon:
    InkBow:
    So this is what personally got me hyped OG know I have been clamoring for a charger with droppoff and called it the ink bow (as well as a ink flail known as the swoosher)
    See I weapon I had posted for aged finally make it into the game is a dream come true hope to see some more in the future

    Along we see returning weapons
    Hydra splatling
    splattershot
    Eliter 4k
    Dynamo Roller
    .96 gal (?)
    Sloshing machine
    Range Blaster



    Inkdodging:
    It is easy to miss but during a shot we see an inkling do a diagonal dash out of the ink to dodge the attack
    Probably pulling from Smash Ultimate this mechanic will open up opportunities for movement, positioning and mobility



    Companions:
    We got to see two so far the salmonoid buddy, and the crab (which could potentially be a special)
    We get the ability to customize them as well which you know I am ggoing to have the freshest buddy around


    Return of the inkzooka
    This was always such a fun special and I am glad to see it return along with many classic spaltoon weapons


    Fresh gear and more hairstyles!

    Again there is alot more to piece together let me know what else you notived or potential theories for what was found down below

    I'm super excited! The effects of chaos winning final fest are on full display in that trailer. Was that an inkzooka I saw at the end? I'm so excited, I never would have expected this to be the cap to the direct!

    So, the Smallfry showing up gives me hope for companions in the lobby.

    My biggest hope for the game right now is that they don't throw out balance for the sake of theming. They did a pretty good job overall of balancing 2 compared to 1 - "chaos" doesn't have to mean that balance doesn't matter.

    First up in the trailer is the "Style" replacing gender, though, I doubt that's going to change how the Inkling/Octoling sounds. This also confirms Octolings returning as playable characters and a new weapon class.

    A Smallfry buddy, it probably will tie into a pet mechanic for the lobbies.

    A non-Salmonid fish in the train, interesting.

    Everything outside of the Inkopolis hub is a wreck, the city itself is the only thing standing.

    Speaking of the city, it looks like the Jellyfish that will be in the lobby this time will be the kind from Octo Expansion, along with the normal ones we are used to.

    The hub is a mix of several cities in terms of style.

    More Octarian tech integrated into stages, at least with the Spawn Points and a new drone.

    No idols were shown, a big departure from what we are used to in terms of first trailers.


    Anyways I might post more findings as more is found out about the game, but so far, it's looking promising.

    So, there's up to 2 years ahead of me before the game gets released? Considering how quickly Splatoon 2 was released after Splatoon 1 got the final splatfest, this is just a torture. I wish they either canned the whole AC series (never liked those games), or moved Splatoon to a director that knows basic UX. It's just amazing to see how little Nintendo cares about its major IP, and possibly the most revolutionary franchise since Quake dropped, setting new standards for movement and a control scheme that's unmatched.

    At least release the new Switch and provide a 120 FPS mode before this game comes out, I assume Splatoon 2 won't get any new splatfests, because you're supposed to wait even longer. Also, make flick stick a thing, because it would make this game play even faster and make matches more insane.

    Also, I hope they keep around the Splatoon 2 splattershot design, as it was nailed, but the trailer looks like they had to ruin the aesthetics of it.

    I will admit tough it is tough it is good that they are taking their time Splatoon 2 got many complaints early on of simply being a Splatoon 1.5 til updates started picking up
    This will give the game a promise start and possibly expand the initial weapon roster (Spaltoon 2 again pretty barren day 1)
    Plus on top of that designing a game in covid life is risky if rushed....I mean just look how many complaints Avengers game had after release so waiting a year is ok for me

    As for design it is likely these are vairants of the original weapons like the forge spalltershot pro or .96 deco, etc
    Likely either the OG variants will appear or conisdering the games focus on customization we may even be seeing a preview of customizable weapon skins which would be pretty cool

    Aahhh! I'm so hyped! I checked the Twitter account for Nintendo, there's a ton of stuff in there already, two new movements mechaniques!

    Okay so, apparently, the game is taking place in a completely different region that the first two, the city is in a more barren and deserty environment so the matches take place in "the wilds."

    The city is apparently the "city of chaos" I forget the actually name though. It's called this because of it's sense population.

    The new location will like mean no old stages or characters returning. Rest in peace Agent 4, Kelp Dome, Sheldon, Salmonid Smokeyard, and all my old friends. But that doesn't mean I can't make new ones! I'll still miss Kelp Dome tho...

    I hope we can choose a body type as well. Maybe the "Style" is where we can choose the body type?

    Yeah, that's a shame but at least it'll mean more interesting ideas for stages maybe?

    To be honest, I will miss Inkopolis now that the new setting is Splatsville. But at the same time, things kind of got wrapped up, or we may see a conclusion to it in Splatoon 3. Or it could be that Inkopolis itself got its name changed now that more species are starting to live in it. Maybe they can acknowledge that the younger generation of Inklings now know Octolings live among them.
