Nintendo recently confirmed that a special free Splatfest event for Splatoon 3 will take place two weeks before the game is released.

The event, which is being dubbed the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere demo, will take place on:

Last month Nintendo announced plans to release a special edition Nintendo Switch OLED console with a Splatoon 3 theme.

The Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon 3 Edition console will launch on August 26 with a suggested retail price of $359.99.

A Splatoon 3 Switch Pro Controller ($74.99) and a Splatoon 3 Switch carrying case ($24.99) will be released on the same date.

Splatoon 3’s latest trailer shows off its single-player campaign.

Harvestella was revealed during a Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase earlier this year. The game will be released for Switch and Steam on November 4, 2022.

“In Harvestella players will experience a beautiful world that changes with the flow of the seasons and enjoy a variety of gameplay including tending to crops, befriending townspeople and adventuring into challenging dungeons.” Square Enix said.

The game features concept art by Isamu Kamikokuryo, who previously worked on Final Fantasy XII, and music by Go Shiina, who previously worked on the Tales series.
