Along with Splatoon, Nintendo introduced a new IP address in 2015. Colorful gunman quickly flourished in hitand Splatoon 2 didn’t wait long. Fans and critics praised the smooth gameplay, great music, and fun gameplay. Now we’re going to release Splatoon 3, so we can do it exclusive switch game even try it live and in color on Nintendo. You can find out if the color battle is just as fun as its predecessors in ours Announcement!
First, we played a classic Turf War Modewhere the goal is to color the arena as colorful as possible with our octopus ink. At the same time, we’re removing opponents so they can’t do this. So far so good something must be new, right? Sure, we’ve fought on new maps that seem fairly balanced at least at first glance.
Moreover, we are now able to evasive jump run backwards and oppose us new weapon for disposal. This Intertwinedobviously inspired by the katana, it is one fast, powerful melee weaponwhich we use to quickly eliminate opponents. But with this weapon we only spread a little color on the map. It is also new bowwhich compared to other weapons does not take up much space on the map, but deals a lot of damage with precision.
While braided is very easy to play, the bow requires more knowledge, and its handling is not that easy to learn: Depending on whether we jump or stand on the ground, and depending on how long we load the weapon, we will keep different when shots. If you want to show others how to play correctly and want to face slightly bigger challenges, this is the perfect opportunity to bring it to life.
Otherwise they are new ultimate skillsthis is how it works devices in previous parts of the series. Other than that, the game looks very familiar to seasoned players, but that’s not a bad thing as Splatoon’s smooth gameplay doesn’t need to be tweaked too much to get more fun, just expand it.
Immerse yourself in the salmon catwalk
We were also able to use our fins in mode Run salmon place. Unfortunately, we couldn’t show it to you in the video. A similar mode already existed in 2nd platoonhe was, however PvE cooperative battle time-limited and can only be played at certain times. This is changing in Splatoon 3 (Buy now ) at last! To four players Can we do that Horde Mode fight and defend yourself from evil underwater beasts. But the struggle for power alone is not enough. In order to survive the three waves of enemies, we have to collect golden fish eggs from the bosses and bring them to our base.
Our runs ended relatively quickly, but not because we were bored. No, we’ve increased the difficulty of the mode each time. We started at around 10% and ended up at 30%, the difference was obvious. We don’t even want to know how it all looks 200%!
Oh did we mention that we can’t choose our weapons, we get one new assigned per wave? This makes the mode even more interesting, and at the same time teaches us to know and master all weapons! Communication between players is also welcome, otherwise we will quickly get lost in the attack of opponents. Unfortunately it still is no integrated voice chat. If you want to communicate, you have to get either apartment download or rely on third party programs.
Splatoon 3 campaign
Also story mode the game teaches us how to use a variety of weapons, skills and our motor actions. On small, parkour-like levels, we solve puzzles, defeat opponents and, just like in Salmon Run, we put weapons at our disposal. Already at the beginning we had problems with some puzzles and we were stuck with some opponents for a while, so far the mode does not seem child’s play, despite the age rating of 6! Overall we couldn’t spend a lot of time in Story Mode, but so far it looks promising. Now it just depends on how many levels are in the game.
One of the ultimate abilities related to our weapons is the tank that we use to launch powerful missiles! [Quelle: Nintendo]
Splatoon 3 – online worries
We still have something to do. Splatoon always has Online mode problems. Fortunately, some of them have been resolved! We can do it very easily create a lobby, invite friends and even with these play on the same team. Sounds crazy, but it really is only now possible. Also, while waiting for the match, we can spend time with friends in the lobby and in the training room. So waiting is more interesting.
But there’s another big problem that flashes with all Nintendo titles: serveror rather theirs non-existence. Anyone who plays Splatoon online does not use any servers provided by Nintendo, but only a combination of their own and other players. It is also called peer2peer. This causes one pod lags suffers or the opponent sees too lateif the difference in connection quality is too great – actually one nowadays Online gaming ban.
Especially in titles with a rival claim, when Splatoon also wants to be seen. When asked, we were unable to find out if anything had improved in this aspect. Another problem is tick indicatorwhich is responsible for how many times per second players share where they are and what they do. Have you ever turned a corner and still got hit? Probably because information only in Splatoon 16 times per second be sent. For comparison: Valorant has a tick indicator 128 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive via one of the 64. These circumstances hinder fair, competitive competition, so hopefully these problems will be resolved in the new industry. We couldn’t test it because we were playing over a LAN connection.
In addition to these (potential) online quirks, Splatoon 3 also delivers one in line with our experience so far Incredibly fun shooter with smooth gameplay, fantastic soundtrack and unique gameplay.
Spluto 3 is Switch exclusive shooteram September 9, 2022 spends. Splatoon is a relatively young brand of Nintendo, the first game hit the market seven years ago – and has been a great success. Of course, you will soon find out how Part 3 performs in the test in our test.
