Splatoon 3 Returning Stages

7 familiar stages from past Splatoon games are returning in Splatoon 3. This includes 3 from the original Splatoon and 4 from Splatoon 2. They are:

  • Inkblot Art Academy (Splatoon 2)
  • Sturgeon Shipyard (Splatoon 2)
  • Makomart (Splatoon 2)
  • Wahoo World (Splatoon 2)
  • Hammerhead Bridge (Splatoon)
  • Museum d’Alfonsino (Splatoon)
  • Mahi-Mahi Resort (Splatoon)

Museum d’Alfonsino

Splatoon players will battle for turf in the courtyard of this modern museum. Taking control of the rotating wall in the center of the map is key if you want to win!

Hammerhead Bridge

A long, narrow map set on a railway bridge that connects Greater Inkopolis to the Splatlands.

Mahi-Mahi Resort

This holiday destination has become the site of a Turf War. The sinking platforms give players a lot to think about when trying to paint this stage!

Inkblot Art Academy

The first of 4 returning maps from Splatoon 2, Inkblot Art Academy is a prestigious art school. Let’s hope the students don’t see all of the mess Inklings make during a Turf War!

Sturgeon Shipyard

A shipyard full of cranes and moving bridges, this map is another fan-favorite from Splatoon 2 that is returning in Splatoon 3.

Wahoo World

An amusement park on a boardwalk, Wahoo World is a major tourist attraction when Inklings aren’t having a Turf war there!

There are 5 brand-new stages in Splatoon 3 at launch. These are:

  • Scorch Gorge

Eeltail Alley

In the backstreets of Splatsville, Eeltail Alley has plenty of verticality thanks to the many bridges around the stage.

Mincemeat Metalworks

Scrap metal factory Mincemeat Metalworks used to be in the middle of the sea but that has now evaporated, leaving behind a wasteland.

Undertow Spillway

Undertow Spillway is a huge, abandoned flood bypass located deep below Splatsville.

Hagglefish Market

A pier full of street vendors, Splatoon players won’t be shopping in Hagglefish Market though – there’s a Turf war to be won!

Splatoon 3 Post-Launch Stages

Splatoon 3 will be getting even more stages in free post-launch updates. None of the additional stages have been confirmed yet but Nintendo has given fans a glimpse of what two of the stages look like.

One of these upcoming stages appears to be set in a residential area, while the other looks to be an archaeological site similar to the pyramids.

Let’s hope these arrive in-game shortly after launch!
