Nintendo Reveals Details About Challenges in Splatoon 3

Splatoon 3 Challenges

Nintendo revealed details about the new Splatoon 3 Challenges mode added as part of the Sizzle Season. This will be a new online event mode. Challenges will be similar to Splatoon 2’s League Battles, where different game modes were rotated on a schedule.

The modes in Challenges will offer new twists on the Splatoon formula beyond the usual match formats. In the Sizzle Season announcement trailer, Nintendo named a few of the challenges, but now the company provided further details. Too Many Trizookas gives everyone access to an unlimited Trizooka special weapon. Foggy Notion drowns the entire stage in fog, making it harder to see your opponents. Finally, Extreme Jump Battle beefs up the jumping physics. We will see more Challenges in future updates.

The first Challenge in Splatoon 3 will be the New Season Challenge, which will take place on June 2-4, 2023, depending on your time zone. According to Nintendo, there will be three time windows across the weekend, each lasting two hours.

This is the latest time-limited event added to Splatoon 3. Other events have included the Eggstra Work and Big Run variants on the Salmon Run mode, as well as the regular Splatfest events. The most recent Splatfest was based on The Legend of Zelda and saw victory for Team Power, representing Ganondorf.

Splatoon 3 is out now for the Nintendo Switch. Sizzle Season kicks off on June 1, 2023.
