Splatoon 3 is massive and lovely, but, alongside the new Chill Season update bringing tonnes of new content, we’re also getting Big Run for the holiday season. This is the game mode announced prior to the game’s release, a limited-time event bringing Splatoon 3’s Salmon Run enemies into the city.

Splatoon 3’s Big Run event kicks off on December 9 at 16:00 PT and ends on December 11 at 16:00 PT. It’s unclear if these times are the same across the globe. For those in Europe, the dates differ, with the event starting on December 10, as shown in this tweet from Nintendo of Europe.

So, it looks like it’s time to get ready for some invasive Salmonids. If you still need to prepare, we’ve got Splatoon 3 weapons, Splatoon 3 gear, and Splatoon 3 hairstyles guides so you can pick out your favourite items for the weekend event.

When is the Splatoon 3 Big Run event?

The Splatoon 3 Big Run event starts on December 9 at 16:00 PT and ends on December 11 at 16:00 PT. For those in Europe, the event starts on December 10 and ends two days later. Check out the trailer below.
