What to Expect From the Splatoon 3 Direct

We expect to learn more about the new Splatlands region in the upcoming Direct, as well as some new features.

For example, we may see some more details on the story of the latest Splatoon game. While the focus of Splatoon is on the online portion, the story was a great way to teach new players the different mechanics.

We also expect some looks at new maps, as well as possibly some new weapons. We’ve already see the Tri-Stinger, which is a Splatoon version of a bow, but could more be shown?

Finally, with the reveal of Salmon Run coming back, we expect to see some new Salmon Run gameplay too!
