Team up and fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses in the next iteration of Salmon Run, a co-op mode with fresh new features. 



What's Splatoon?

What`s Splatoon?

Take on inkredible 4-on-4 team battles! That's what ya do in Splatoon.

Move as a squid! Fight as a kid!

Play as an Inkling! Inklings have both a squid form and a kid form. In squid form, you can dive into ink to hide or quickly scoot around the stage. In kid form, you can use your weapons. Toggle between the two as circumstances demand!

Ink the most turf and you win. Easy peasy.

Turf War battles are 4-on-4 team matches. For three minutes, each team splats as much area as they can. The team with the most area splatted wins!

 4-on-4 team battles


Weapons are important in battles.
They come in different varieties so you can choose the one you like. The ways of splatting ink vary from weapon to weapon. If you look closely, you may notice that they resemble items you see every day...?

Scatter ink with a swift brush stroke using Brushes

Sling out ink like a bucket with Sloshers

Fire multiple ink arrows at once with Stringers

Attack and shield with an umbrella-like Brellas

Fire rapid shots of ink using easy-to-use Shooters

Fashion is also a key

You can keep your outfit fresh with gear such as hats, shoes and T-shirts that come in different varieties. Fashion has a significant impact on battles, as gear can also help you in battles by letting you recover ink quicker, move faster, etc.
