Splatoon 3’s Google easter egg turns the site into a canvas

Google ‘Splatoon 3’ and guess what? The search engine has a little Easter egg that lets you start splatting the screen for some ink-filled nonsense

Google is famous for its easter eggs. Famous birthdays, world events, and all manner of things are noted by their designers with little tweaks to the logo or minigames. It’s cute, and Splatoon 3 gets its own little easter egg too.

This Splatoon 3 Google Easter egg lets you splat the screen with a tap of your finger, making it a colourful blank canvas. There’s not much more to it than that, but it’s nice to see a non-Mario or Zelda title get a little treat from the global tech giant.

If you want to see it for yourself, it’s super simple. Just Google ‘Splatoon 3’, tap on the ink splat next to the game’s boxout, and get splatting! We’ve got a Splatoon 3 review if you’re yet to pick up the game (guess what? We love it). Or there’s our Splatoon 3 soundtrack feature sharing the love for the wacky tunes, as well as a Splatoon 3 weapons guide to make sure you’re at the top of your game.

If you’re struggling to find it, we’ve got instructions below.
