Splatoon 3 It might be one of the biggest games of 2022 for the Nintendo Switch, but there hasn’t been an official word on when it will come out. However, it looks like two Nintendo experts could narrow the window for fans. Nintendo whistleblower @ SamusHunter2 on Twitter claims that Splatoon 3 It was internally planned for March 18, although she indicates it could have changed. It’s worth mentioning that another trusted source, Emily Rogers, responded by saying that the game was always planned as a summer 2022 release. As with any rumor, readers are advised to take this with a grain of salt.

Is not true. Splatoon 3 was always planned to release closer during the summer. (May August).

With Pokémon Legends: Arceus Launching later this month, a major Nintendo release in March definitely looks plausible. Rogers says he hopes to see Kirby and the forgotten land to release that month, instead. splatoon Y Splatoon 2 released in May and July, respectively, so a summer release window would be in keeping with what we’ve seen in the series. @ SamusHunter2 goes on to say that Nintendo EAD is already working on post-launch content for Splatoon 3, so the game does not face the same wait that plagued Animal Crossing: New Horizons players.
Of course, it seems like a safe bet that we’ll soon learn more about Nintendo’s 2022 release schedule. The company has already announced multiple major exclusives for this year, and it seems like a safe bet that fans will see those games evenly distributed. In addition to Pokémon, Splatoon, and Kirby, Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp, Bayonetta 3, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild all have been confirmed for 2022. Hopefully, the first Nintendo Direct presentation of the year will give fans a better idea of when to expect the release of some of the biggest Switch games. We don’t know exactly when that next presentation might happen, but maybe Nintendo will give Switch fans some official news soon!
