Nintendo revealed details about the next Splatoon 3 season. The Sizzle Season will begin on June 1, 2023, following the end of the current Fresh Season. More content is coming to the game, including new music, new and returning stages, and a weapon referencing a classic Nintendo peripheral.

Two new stages were revealed. The first of these is Humpback Pump Track, a BMX-themed stage that first appeared in Splatoon 2. The second stage is a new one called Barnacle & Dime. From the footage shown by Nintendo, it appears to be inspired by the courtyard of a large mall. Salmon Run will also gain a new stage, which is Jammin’ Salmon Junction.

New weapons will be added to Splatoon 3 too. The Paintbrush is another brush weapon, and it is one that offers a wider spread than the Inkbrush or Octobrush. A new Blaster weapon, the S-BLAST ’92, is also coming. It’s based on the Super Scope, a light gun released for the SNES. This is similar to the N-ZAP weapons already in the game, which are based on the NES Zapper.

Another major addition for the Sizzle Season is Challenges. Nintendo’s trailer showed off some possible challenges, including Too Many Trizookas, Foggy Notion, and Extreme Jump Battle. It’s not clear how these challenges will be implemented into the game.

The Splatoon 3 Sizzle Season also adds new Tableturf cards, outfits, and emotes, as each new season’s catalog typically does. New music will also be appearing, with the music in the trailer taking on a ska style.

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