Splatoon 3’s Big Run event returns for the Sizzle Season

Splatoon 3’s Big Run mode, a brand new game mode that brings Salmonids to Splatsville, returns to Nintendo Switch on June 9, so get ready.

Splatoon 3 is massive and lovely, but, alongside the new Sizzle Season update bringing tonnes of new content, we’re also getting Splatoon 3’s Big Run for the summer. 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.

This season’s Big Run event kicks off on June 9 at 17:00 PT and ends on June 11 at 17:00 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 June 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 June 9 at 17:00 PT and ends on June 11 at 17:00 PT. For those in Europe, the event starts on June 10 and ends two days later. Check out the trailer below.
